Research Process Step 1: An annotated bibliography is a list of sources with annotations, listed in alphabetical order. An annotation is a one or two paragraph summary and/or analysis of a source. This type of bibliography will help guide the student’s research and prepare them for the research essay with a critical evaluation of the sources.
Recommended length: 4-6 pages, double-spaced in 12pt font. APA Format.
The annotated bibliography will be your source for your Final Research Paper. I am recommending two different “focus” for your research below. Although for the purpose of this specific assignment, it doesn’t really matter which path you follow-consider that your Synthesis or Step Two and Final Research paper will most likely use some of the sources included in your annotated bibliography-so you might try to really begin to focus on articles that capture your own interest, and especially if following your interests will make this course more worthwhile to you.
Path A Instructions
Pick any topic that relates to artificial intelligence/bio-molecular genetic engineering and research it! You might choose from movies/films about artificial intelligence, or cultural/societal impacts of changing technologies, or ethical concerns and consequences. Here’s a quick list (Links to an external site.) of topics.
Here’s a link to an article (Links to an external site.) from one of my favorite cognitive scientists (Andy Clark (Links to an external site.)) in which he obviously is a strong proponent of the merger of AI/genetics and humanity. You could do a little research into his body of work and using some aspects of the Blade Runnermovie to discuss the potential hazards of this type of human cyborg future. Just a few thoughts out loud-follow your own research questions and interests!
