Begin working on the Research Presentation, due in Week Five.
Prepare a 15- to 20-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation describing existing research efforts in one of the following areas:
· Computer vision, such as automatic recognition of objects, boundaries, and so on
· Computational linguistics, such as information extraction, corpus analysis, and so on
· Automatic proof programs
· Automated routing programs, such as shipping, circuitry, electric power, and so on
· Ultra-high-speed or high-precision computation
Note. You may select other topic areas with facilitator approval. You may not reuse materials prepared for previous courses since this is considered “dovetailing” and is in violation of the university policy on academic honesty.
Include a discussion of concepts discussed in this course, such as the following:
· Logic and set theory
· Algorithmic concepts
· Relations and functions
· Graph theory
· Boolean algebra
