    _____ is a mathematical method of handling imprecise or subjective information.  

    • A.

      Decision support system

    • B.

      Fuzzy logic

    • C.

      Neural network

    • D.

      Knowledge management system

    Correct Answer
    B. Fuzzy logic
    Explanation
    Fuzzy logic is a mathematical method of handling imprecise or subjective information. It allows for the representation and manipulation of uncertain or vague concepts, providing a way to deal with imprecision and uncertainty in decision-making processes. Fuzzy logic is commonly used in various fields, including artificial intelligence, control systems, and decision support systems, to handle situations where precise information is not available or difficult to obtain.

    _____ is the collective behavior of groups of simple agents that are capable of devising solutions to problems as they arise, eventually leading to coherent global patterns.  

    • A.

      Group intelligence

    • B.

      Swarm intelligence

    • C.

      Social intelligence

    • D.

      Crowd behavior

    Correct Answer
    B. Swarm intelligence
    Explanation
    Swarm intelligence refers to the collective behavior of groups of simple agents, such as insects or robots, that can work together to solve problems and create coherent global patterns. This concept is inspired by the behavior of natural swarms, where individual agents interact locally and make decentralized decisions, leading to emergent intelligent behavior at the group level. Swarm intelligence has been applied in various fields, such as optimization algorithms, robotics, and traffic management, to find efficient solutions to complex problems.

    _____ refers to discovering groups of customers that are in some way or another "similar", without using any a priori and known structures.  

    • A.

      Summarization

    • B.

      Clustering

    • C.

      Classification

    • D.

      Regression

    Correct Answer
    B. Clustering
    Explanation
    Clustering refers to discovering groups of customers that are "similar" without using any a priori and known structures. This involves grouping together customers based on their similarities in certain characteristics or behaviors, without any pre-defined categories or labels. Clustering helps in identifying patterns and relationships among customers, allowing businesses to target specific customer segments or personalize their marketing strategies.

    _____ agents are intelligent agents that take action on your behalf.

    • A.

      Data-mining

    • B.

      User

    • C.

      Monitoring-and-surveillance

    • D.

      Buyer

    Correct Answer
    B. User
    Explanation
    User agents are intelligent agents that take action on your behalf. User agents, also known as web browsers, are software applications that retrieve and display web pages. They act on behalf of the user by sending requests to web servers and receiving and rendering the requested content. User agents interpret HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other web technologies to present web content to the user. They enable users to navigate the internet, interact with websites, and perform various tasks online.

    Rate this question:

    Which of the following software agents can adapt and alter the manner in which it attempts to achieve its assigned task?  

    • A.

      Mobile agent

    • B.

      Distributed agent

    • C.

      Intelligent agent

    • D.

      Autonomous agent

    Correct Answer
    D. Autonomous agent
    Explanation
    An autonomous agent is capable of adapting and altering its behavior in order to achieve its assigned task. It has the ability to learn from its environment and make decisions based on that learning. This makes it different from other types of software agents such as mobile agents, distributed agents, and intelligent agents, which may have limited or no ability to adapt and alter their behavior.
