This original review paper will map out strong support for machine learning technologies for use in a brain-inspired decision-making tool that can be applied to a range of engineering management problems, including a decision support system (DSS). Studies have shown that machine learning is a solid foundation for a DSS. Big data analytics can lead to a stronger organization as decision-making skills are less dependent upon stress-related situations that can skew data. The Naïve Bayes algorithm could be an effective conclusion. In this paper, I introduced several areas of decision-making and decision support systems, including brain-inspired machine learning, smart decision-making, stress and smart decision-making, the impact of machine learning on decision-making, big data and decision support systems, COVID-19, and emerging diseases and deep technologies. In conclusion, a DSS with a data-driven strategy and machine learning methods can offer valuable experience and decision-making skills. Artificial intelligence such as machine learning facilities brain-inspired decision-making.
