I’m working on a Article Writing question and need guidance to help me study.
An 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 Example
Subject: Artificial Intelligence
Bringsjord, 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
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),
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),
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.
Minimum Length: From three sources, minimum, no maximum, have MLA reference followed by short summaries.
Other 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 only
12 TNR Font only
every page numbered
one inch margins all the way around, or on all four sides
an attached Works Cited page
minimum three sources, but more acceptable
every source listed on the works cited (minimum 3) are quoted a minimum of one time each in the paper
use of parenthetical references with the period outside the reference only like this ( ).
content of the parenthetical references and the reference page consistent with MLA format
works cited in alphabetical order, double space, with the first line of every reference ON the left margin but other lines indented onceMinimum Length: With required minimum sources of 3, each of which must be quoted minimum one time each–no maximum number of sources other than everything on a works cited must be quoted or not present. These are generally the longest papers and average 4 to 6 pages (always double spaced of course).
