Question Description

Research Process Step 1: An annotated bibliography is a list of sources with annotations, listed in alphabetical order. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.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.)Links to an external site. of topics. Whatever topic you write about will require you to include a connection/discussion of at least one of the chapters from two of the thematic areas of the iBook-for example, Part A (Origins) and/or Part B/C (Ethics/Theories of Knowledge) from our iBook-and from the Bladerunner 1982/2016 (if applicable to your research topic).

Here’s a link to an article (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. from one of my favorite cognitive scientists (Andy Clark (Links to an external site.)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 Runner movie to discuss the potential hazards of this type of human cyborg future. You could also use one of the creation stories that clearly depicts that even the gods don’t get creation right the first time and often have to destroy humankind and start over again. And finally another link from the iBook might be to use the essay from Dr. Aiello on Mary Daly and the potential to mimic some kind of patriarchal bias in our artificial intelligent algorithms-or something like that. Maybe even the Crito of Plato and the idea of justice being somehow decided by a computer might not take into account the ideal that Plato encourages-that somehow a life isn’t worth living if it is reduced to mere expedience-I think you would agree that the Replicant Roy might make such an argument! Just a few thoughts out loud-follow your own research questions and interests!

Path B Instructions

Simply find a set of articles (preferable scholarly or professional) that describe clearly some impact of artificial intelligence/genetics on a field/major discipline (maybe yours!). Discuss the specific concerns or controversies, and then enter into the discussion by relating some of your own knowledge and experience. You will still be required to consider how the Origins/Ethics/Theories of Knowledge Dialogue themes might frame or influence any argument (that the experts or public makes) as to how these changes to the field as a result of technology might be good or bad. For example, whenever you consider whether some consequences of technology might be good or bad you have entered into the realm of normative ethics-so you could relate some of these concerns that are voiced by the public/experts as being based in an Origin story that reserves certain powers for humans and other powers for gods. Or in an ethic that is proscriptive like the Christian commandments or prescriptive like the Sermon on the Mount compared to a more ambiguous teleological ambition of the Taoists.

Verma, A., & Kumar, S. (2018, January). Cognitive Robotics in Artificial
Intelligence. In 2018 8th International Conference on Cloud Computing, Data Science &
Engineering (Confluence) (pp. 65-70). IEEE.
The article supports that Rodney Brooks and Robotics are the pioneers to artificial
intelligence. Cognitive robotics refers to certain structures that tend to interfere with the shapes
of robotics, and these structures can reason just like a human being. Artificial intelligence refers
to the ability of computer systems to carry out functions which require human intelligence, for
example, making of decisions and visual perception. The article describes how robots make use
of artificial intelligence and science in making computers to undertake various activities done by
human beings. Robotics and genetic intelligence have a long history of interaction in different
ways. The robots perform duties such as reasoning, learning and also solving problems based on
the integrity of human beings. The fact that robots can perform all these functions makes them
more of human beings. These are just some of the areas where robotics outperform human
beings. Therefore, robotics is said to be the pioneer of artificial intelligence.
Currently, the robotics have gone an extra mile to outperform the activities of human
beings in so many ways. The interaction between the robotics and the artificial intelligence is
described in the way the robotics can conduct training...
