research process step 2 1

Research Process Step 1: Synthesis writing is a written discussion that draws on one or more sources. In an academic synthesis, you make explicit the relationships that you have inferred among separate sources. Go beyond summary to make judgments – judgments based, of course, on critical reading of the sources. Go beyond the critique of individual sources to determine the relationship among them.

Recommended length: 4-5 pages, double-spaced in 12pt font. APA Format.

Research Step One Instructions

Using as many sources from your Annotated Bibliography as are applicable to your research question:

Step One-Synthesis-the act of merging at least two sources of research into a coherent analysis/argument.

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. Or check out Kevin Kelly’s (Links to an external site.) talk.

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.
