Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science focused on designing intelligent machines that can think and act like humans. It is an interdisciplinary science that brings together many disciplines such as mathematics, engineering, linguistics, psychology, and computer science. AI research has been around since the 1950s, but has become increasingly popular in recent years due to technological advances such as developing powerful computers and the availability of large amounts of data.
The goal of AI is to create systems that can think and learn like humans. In recent years, developing machine learning algorithms has made great strides towards this goal. These algorithms "learn" how to use data to solve problems and make decisions. AI has many potential applications in healthcare, education, and finance. AI can be used to diagnose disease, deliver personalized care, and even detect fraud. It can also be used to improve business efficiency by providing detailed insights into customer preferences and behaviours. AI can also be used to automate many mundane tasks, freeing up people's time for more creative endeavours.
Organize Your Research
- State the hypothesis and purpose of your research.
- Describe your methods of investigation.
- Include data collected and what was learned.
- Give conclusions based on the collected data.
- Emphasize the significance and highlights of the research.
Shape Your Presentation
- Prepare notes that highlight the salient points of your talk.
- Practice the delivery of your talk, along with your slide sequence. Be sure your talk fits the time allotted.
- Use simple sentences. Avoid jargon, highly specialized vocabulary, and unfamiliar abbreviations.
- Think about questions you might be asked, and prepare your answers.
- Audio-visuals should amplify your talk, not duplicate it.
- Do not include music or film clips or other copyrighted content with your presentation unless it is directly relevant to your research. If you must include music, film clips, or similar content, please ensure that it is either open source or content for which you have copyright permissions to use. Optimally display your work—don't use words if a picture conveys it more clearly (graphs, tables, charts, etc.).
- Use line graphs to show trends; bar graphs to compare magnitudes; pie graphs to demonstrate relative portions of a whole.
- Make sure your supporting audio-visuals are concise, uncluttered, and easily read from a distance. We recommend that you use a font of at least eighteen points or larger. This is especially important in presentations to a virtual audience because screen sizes vary by user.
- Request special AV equipment early or it may not be available.
