D.A Pitch

 

For my D.A I will be looking into artificial intelligence in the home. This concept is fairly interesting as A.I’s such a Google Homes are now a commonly used device by many individuals. But do we really understand them? I will answer this question throughout the 3 video essays that I  will be uploading. Diving deeper into concepts such as where A.I will take us in the future and how society will depend on it.

My DA fits the F.I.S.T framework as it is:

Fast: By gathering research early I will be able to categorise into the information into groups. This will make putting the videos together easier.

Inexpensive: By using resources from the UOW Library as well  as online news articles the project will cost $0. YouTube is also a free platform to upload content to the world

Simple: Picking a topic I am interested in makes the project less of a ‘chore’ and more something that I want to do. By breaking to topics down into 3 sections it allows for the work load to be spread out evenly over the semester.

Tiny: My project will only be completed by myself within the timeframe that I have allocated weekly. Again, by spreading out the workload it allows for the assignment to be less stressful and difficult if left to the last minute.

  1. Hi Taylor,

    The overall presentation of your pitch was great. You defined your concept clearly and from there went and ticked off the required marking criteria explaining your plan, timeline, relevance, background research, feedback and utility. You also clearly demonstrated how your project fits in with the FIST framework. I see your proposed topic to be very interesting and relevant as it definitely is the direction in which we all see the future heading.

    One suggestion I have is that you could publish your transcripts for your video essays on a platform, so viewers can not only watch but also have a written transcript to read and provide feedback on.

    I came across an article relevant to your topic which discusses how “it’s only a matter of time before your home becomes smarter than you”. It was a very interesting read that could be beneficial to your research.

    A second article I found in research looks at how smart home technology is making life easier, not only for the rich but for the rest of society – another valuable source!

  2. Hello! First of all, love how the video is in an AI voice, kind of ironic.

    Interesting idea! Obviously as AI has progressed and developed, it is really cool to see you explore that!

    I would suggest talking about the history of AI as well and theories about AI too? Maybe that will give you help you do the three videos – past, present, future. Just a suggestion! You could analyse all the utilities you listed in your video in your analysis.

    Also, love how you used FIST, definitely shows that you have thought about your project in a way that best suits you! I’m excited to see where you go with this! 🙂
