...Management and information systems Name Institution   Management and information systems Q.1.Was playing Jeopardy a good way to test intelligence of machines? Why or why not? The use of the supercomputer IBM Watson in the Jeopardy American television show was a very good way to test it. Since the show is all about asking the contestants questions from wide range of topics including sciences and history, it will test the ability of Watson to come up with a precise answer. In order to do this, it is fed all the information it needs to participate in the game. The most important part is the process it takes in giving out the answer and the arguments it accompanies it with. (Loftus, 2009). The Jeopardy game provides a good platform since it involves asking question random questions and expects right answers from the participants. Q.2. Is Watson a good example of computer system intelligence similar to humans? Watson demonstrates a very good example of intelligence similar to that of humans. It is able to accept questions, analyse them, determine what they require and give the correct answer. However, the requirements needed by the computer to come up with the answer is very different from humans. The computer will need to be fed all the...

...SYSTEM DESIGN & MANAGEMENT ANALYSIS System Design & Management Analysis Veronica Brown-Corbin University of Phoenix Contemporary Systems Management MGT/736 Brian E. Polding, Ph.D March 12, 2007 System Design & Management Analysis Management must recognize the system design and management of an organization are subject to internal and external influences. The internal influences include the management team and employee; and the external influences can include competitors and customers. There are contextual/cultural factors and stakeholders that have an influence on the management system that is designed and implemented. The contextual/cultural factors include key characteristics of the organization, internal and external relations, competitive landscape, strategic opportunities and challenges, and performance improvement. This is an opportunity for executive management to become acquainted with how these influences shape the organization’s context and maximize value for stakeholders. “Leadership’s job was to get the strategy right, design the correct structure, and then tie the strategy to structure through defined systems to deliver high-quality performance” (Nowicki & Summers, 2007, p.118). This is not an easy process and takes time and input from several sources. The leadership in the organization has to guide the organization so that the goals and objectives are met. The performance of the organization will benefit from a well carried out strategic......
