Artificial Intelligence Research Assignment

Your assignment is to research 1 artificial intelligence system and to create a short 1-page report about the system. You can use MS Word or Google Docs to create your report.

If you are not sure what kind of AI system to research, here are some ideas:

  • expert systems, self-driving cars, natural language processing, speech-recognition, hand-writing recognition, facial-recognition, pathing, deep neural networks


For your AI system chosen, please ensure you have answered the following questions:

Explain in detail what the system is.
Explain how the system is “intelligent”, ie. how does it learn?
What disciplines (eg. computer science, biology, sociology) are applied to the design of the system?
Explain the evolution of the system, who started it and how did it evolve to where it is today.
Provide at least 2 examples of the system. Include pictures if appropriate. What artificial intelligence principles are applied to make your example “intelligent”, ie. how does it learn? Explain details of how your example has achieved or not achieved its goals that the creators have set for it. What modifications are forseen to make your example function better.
What ethical implications are there for the system? Could it result in the Terminator scenario, or is it taking jobs away from humans, or is it an invasion of privacy, etc…
Please include hyperlink references to where you conducted your research. Please include a brief 1-sentence description of each resource used.


When done, please submit your 1-page report to the server. The assignment is due by the end of the class on Wed May 10.
