Yesterday was just a brief overview of expert systems - today we're going under the hood to see how they actually work.
  1. Describe and analyse the four main components of an expert system. 
  2. Distinguish between the two kinds of inference engine, and provide examples of where each one is useful. 
  3. Define the term 'fuzzy logic', and explain why it is useful in decision support systems.
  4. Consider the list of potential HSC subjects below. Write up two detailed sets of instructions to guide an expert system, one with forward and the other with backward chaining, to help people decide what subjects they should select for the HSC.
