A few years ago I heard talk about so-called "expert" computer programs
that would ostensibly be able to make "reasoned" decisions, but haven't
heard mention of them recently.   Perhaps they weren't so "expert" after

Would not that depend on how "expert" the person who wrote the program

I think the notion of an "expert system" as the decision-maker has gone
by the board. In fact, the Delphi method
( has proven time and time
again to be superior to "machine only" decision-making.

There are computer software tools that aid in Delphi method management.
