Essay # 1 (Annotated Bibliography) 10% Minimum Length 1000

Essay # 1 (Annotated Bibliography) 10% Minimum Length: 1,000 wordsEssay # 2 (Research paper) 20% Minimum Length: 1,500 wordsOther than possibly a few who might have submitted a first draft of the documented essay last week, most students will be submitting the first draft for a preliminary grade at some point in Module 8. Please understand that those who are able to submit first will receive their corrections and comments first and, therefore, be able to submit their final draft in Module 9 and perhaps receive their grade for the course early. Regardless, try to submit this first draft no later than Sunday since the time for grading might mean you would not get those corrections until some time early in Module 9, depending on the number of papers arriving at the last possible moment.Before submitting you might use this checklist:MLA format top to bottom:Double space only12 TNR Font onlyparagraphs indentedevery page numberedone inch margins all the way around, or on all four sidesan attached Works Cited pageminimum three sources, but more acceptableevery source listed on the works cited (minimum 3) are quoted a minimum of one time each in the paperuse of parenthetical references with the period outside the reference only like this ( ).content of the parenthetical references and the reference page consistent with MLA formatworks cited in alphabetical order, double space, with the first line of every reference ON the left margin but other lines indented onceAn annotated bibliography is basically the same as any works cited or references page but, and there is one big difference: after each reference, there are a few brief sentences summarizing the contents of the reference listed above it in the bibliography. The bibliography is still a list of sources in alphabetical order, but the difference is the summary of the article, book, or any other source appears immediately below the MLA reference–and this is called the annotation, hence an ‘annotated’ bibliography. If you have any questions, Google annotated bibliography examples and look at one or more. To save time and be working on your documented essay at the same time, there is some logic to using the research items for Magical Realism for this assignment. You will be working on your documented essay as you do so, as well as meeting the requirements for this week’s assignment. As always, if you have even the smallest question, please email the instructor. There is an example of an annotated bibliography posted in the Module 7 materials.Annotated Bibliography ExampleStudent XAnnotated BibliographyTroy UniversityToday’s DateAnnotated BibliographySubject: Artificial IntelligenceBringsjord, S. (2011). Psychometric Artificial Intelligence. Journal of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence, 23(3), 271-277. doi:10.1080/0952813x.2010.502314 This journal entry discusses the way artificial intelligence shall be measured. A machine might be able to perform a single task much better than a human, however it cannot be considered intelligent. The author shall be more interested in studying the psychometrics of himself, since there are many petty insults and comments pertaining to other researchers. Hibbard, B. (2015). Ethical Artificial Intelligence. Retrieved from https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1411/1411.1373…. This book reflects on the future of artificial intelligence and the ethical decisions that would have to be decided during creation. Despite being a self-published online book, Mr. Hibbard is well qualified and introduces many intelligent solutions towards artificial intelligence programming. Krzywoszynska, A. (2012). Affect and Artificial Intelligence. Emotion, Space and Society, 5(4), 284. doi:10.1016/j.emospa.2012.05.002 This article is a review of book of the same title, written by Elizabeth A. Wilson. Ms. Wilson, who advertises herself as a feminist scholar, believes that emotions will play an important role in artificial intelligence. This article is one author’s opinion about a book, and her conclusion was inconclusive.Miranda, E. R., & Williams, D. (2015). Artificial Intelligence in Organised Sound. Organised Sound, 20(1), 76-81doi:http://dx.doi.org.ezproxy.libproxy.db.erau.edu/10…. This article about how artificial intelligence will be able to make music that will be enjoyable to the human ear. Organised Sound is a peer-reviewed journal that is devoted to the addition of technology to music, so they certainly have an interest in developing this technology. Nilsson, N. J. (2010). The Quest for Artificial Intelligence: A History of Ideas and Achievements. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Retrieved fromhttp://ai.stanford.edu/nilsson/QAI/qai.pdf This non-fiction book delves into the history of artificial intelligence, as well as projecting its future. From mechanical suits of armor to neural networks, this action-packed adventure through time is genuinely informative. O’leary, D. E. (2013). Artificial Intelligence and Big Data. IEEE Intell. Syst. IEEE Intelligent Systems, 28(2), 96-99. doi:10.1109/mis.2013.39 This article is about the possibility of adding artificial intelligence in an enterprise in order to sort the large amount of data that flows through it. The accuracy of the artificial intelligence for this action would be in question. The article was published by the IEEE Computer Society, which is a well-respected group of engineers that has been around for 70 years. Sheehan, J. J., & Sosna, M. (1991). The Boundaries of Humanity: Humans, Animals, Machines. Berkeley: University of California Press. http://ark.cdlib.org/ark:/13030/ft338nb20q/This book questions whether humans have the same mentality of animals. It also explores the possibility of giving artificial intelligence animal minds, versus a human one. This is a very complicated publication, so a thesaurus will most likely be required. Documented Essay Assignment and TopicWe are ready to begin working on our research essay although it is not due for another week or more. We will all use the same topic, a simple one that is focused on explaining Magical Realism, what it is, where it came from, and some of its practitioners. I suggest that you start with simple research about what Magical Realism is, how it came about, the great authors of Magical Realism, and finally how it manifests itself today, that is to say, in what genres.As you prepare this essay please beware that you must include and quote three to five outside sources, use the MLA format, and in the process of the paper explain what magical realism is, how it developed, some of the great authors and works, and its international scope today. If you have any questions, please email me immediately.We are doing the same topic for a variety of reasons, the first being, I do not want something purchased from a cheating site like Course Hero. When our software reveals that you have done that, you are no longer a member of this class. You will receive an unconditional and final F in the class, no discussion, no appeal.I made the topic very simple, so if you have never written a documented essay, you will still have no trouble. You can use as few as three sources, as I say above, and we have been working the whole term on the format, except we now will deploy several quotations and certainly a works cited page.We are starting in Module 6 so that you may begin to gather some sources to quote, begin an Annotated Bibliography, and get started–with plenty of time to ask all the questions you want to ask.Why don’t you start with the article ‘What Is Magical Realism, Really,’ a very good place to start, and you can certainly use the article as one of your three–or five sources if you use that many.I will give you an alternative topic, directly related to the paper we did for characterization, but this one requiring the three to five sources and works cited. Please read about that option below if you are interested. I will warn you in advance that the paper will be somewhat more challenging in that your research will be a great deal more focused. You make your own choice.Second Possible Topic for the Documented Research EssayIf you do not like the first topic, you can do this one:(this is the title you must use and support):The Characterization of the Misfit in Flannery O’Connor’s ‘A Good Man Is Hard to Find’In this essay, do what you did with the Dee essay: tell how, in this case the Misfit, is characterized by WHAT HE SAYS (and you must include an analysis of a variety of the very revealing things he says, to include his apology for not having on a shirt, his apology for what Bailey says to his mother, his response to the grandmother’s question–‘You wouldn’t shoot a lady would you?’ and more. Another critical and revealing statement is ‘Jesus threw everything off balance,’ and perhaps the final one you must address: ‘She would of been a good woman . . .’WHAT HE DOES, and of course there is less here–killing his father is NOT one since he did not kill his after–but he certainly does some terrible things during the course of the story.and what others say about him–be careful; you can include what his dad said and what the prison psychiatrist said but you have to figure out what both reallysaid because the Misfit does not get it right.Now you do this very carefully and thoroughly but you MUST ADD a minimum of three OUTSIDE SOURCES that you quote at least once each in your essay. These would be articles on the Misfit, the story, or something to do with what you are doing in the essay. Quote each one a minimum one time each and include a Works Cited page with the sources you use, in alphabetical order and MLA format.Any questions about this optional topic email me.The most important part of the paper will be the Conclusion–where you give a summary of what the different aspects of his characterization show the reader and then how we should finally take the Misfit based on O’Connor’s careful and subtle characterization.
