Last week, you were introduced to the four main types of decision support system. We are going to go into more depth on two of those types this morning - those which are classified "artificial intelligence", namely expert systems and neural networks.

In a classwork post, produce a write-up of the advantages/disadvantages comparison that we discussed for expert systems. Then, outline two situations: (i) where experts would be more suitable than expert systems, and (ii) where expert systems would be more suitable than experts.

In the same post, include a summary of The Way Neural Networks Work. Very briefly describe some of the potential problems that could arise from over-reliance on neural networks for decision-making.
