Daily Objective: Understand how A.I. is used in everyday life

In the 1970s.....

Some scientists realized that it was much easier to program a computer with the knowledge of an expert
on a given topic, than it is to give a computer enough general knowledge to sound human. The experts
provide facts, which are stored and programmed in such a way that they are connected and can be questioned.
This area of A.I. is called Expert Systems.

Here is a good overview of Expert Systems
