education 1
  • Computer Assisted Learning (CAL)

- in multimedia format to make learning more interesting

- provide drills and practices for users to test their knowledge and get the result immediately

  • Web-Based Training (WBT)

- the contents can be easily renewed, updated, and accumulated

- use computers: facilitate learning

- using Internet: access vast amounts of information

Computer Applications

Education (2)
  • Helps in School Administration
    • more efficient
    • process and complete tasks using computer makes the school run smoothly

    • accident occur when hiking
  • microprocessor in car & other vehicles

Computer Applications

expert system
Expert System
  • Systems that simulates the decision-making processes of human experts or professionals
  • By searching through the rules and facts stored in the systems’knowledge bases
  • Examples include : Diagnosis of diseases, Language translation (also known as natural language processing)

Computer Applications

  • It is a machine with artificial intelligence (AI). With the help of senses, it communicates with the environment and gives responses.
  • It can replace human to do dangerous or boring work such as car soldering. Thus, it saves manpower.
  • Robotic technologies are widely used in manufacturing industry
  • It may serve as a pet too, e.g. AIBO
