Ans:
The role of an expert system is to augment, and sometimes even replace the capability and functioning of a human expert on an area where it is considered a specialist subject.
a. Decision Support System (DSS) can help the students to decide which course is going to help them achieve any particular career goal or learning objective.

b. Again, with the help of relevant data and a DSS, it is possible to help identify the required number of cooks for optimally serving the needs for each night at a restaurant.

c. Identifying potential criminals at an airport requires human level intelligence and can only be provided with a more advanced AI system.

d. Investing in the stock ...
