Passage Two

Villages in developing countries often lack many things. Books, clean water, electricity. These shortages are easy to see. But a different kind of shortage is not easy to see. That is a shortage of experts. Many villages have no doctors, engineers or scientists. They have no one who knows how to treat unusual medical problems or design a new expert system. There`s a way to ease these problems. They can do it with computers. In the past few years, computer scientists around the world have developed what they call expert systems. An expert system is a special kind of computer program. In some situations, it can take the place of a human expert. For example, an expert in medical system can help care for a sick person. A question appears on the computer screen, "Is the person hot?" You tell the computer either yes or no. The computer asks other questions. "Has the person lost any blood?" "Can the person move normally?" You answer. The computer continues to ask questions until it has enough information to make a decision. Then it tells what medicine or other treatment is needed. In this way the expert system takes the place of a doctor. Another kind of expert system takes the place of an engineer. It measures the flow of water in a river. It tells if a dam can be built on the river. It also tells how much electricity can be produced. Still other kinds of expert systems help solve problems for farmers and owners of small businesses.

Passage Three

Last summer I visited Mexico City to see the ancient art in the museums there. I was surprised at how well I managed to get around even though I don`t speak a word of Spanish. You just have to be able to make the right decision in a talk situation. The manager of my hotel gave me a map of the city and told me that the best way to get to the museum was by subway. I didn`t know where the nearest subway was. But I was sure I would find it if I walked a little. After an hour I was still walking. I was completely lost. Just then a policeman came over and showed me the nearest station. I looked at the subway map and wall and didn`t know which line to take. In fact I wasn`t shown which station I was in.
