Writer's Journal #1 - Reflecting On Beginnings
How did your CRQ change from your initial formulation to its current form?
After years about thinking on this topic, I have had some time to think about what it is that I want to formulate. This topic alone is fascinating. At the same time it can be considered a "curse." Artificial intelligence for some people brings fear and uncertainty.
How did working with others in the discussion forum affect how you think about creating and revising a working CRQ?
Working with others had little affect on revising my CRQ. My fellow writers did have some great ideas and great CRQ's of there own.
One of ASU’s design aspirations is to “Transform Society.” At this point, how might the inquiry you plan on conducting work towards such transformation? How does this make you feel about the work you are going to conduct in this course?
The idea that you can turn on any "smart" technology device these days is incredible. There is technology that does the thinking for you, so you don't have too. Lets just say you are going on a road trip. One of the main reasons that people go on road trips is to view the scenery. But at the same time you have to drive. What happens if that was not the case? Another great example is the commute to work. If you live in a heavy populated area the traffic is going to be intense. With the artificial intelligence the vehicle will be able to drive by itself. Today we are not far from achieving this very realistic goal. I feel the work for this course is going to be a great thing. I'm already very excited about going in-depth about a CRQ already!
WRITER'S JOURNAL #2 - Exigency, Kairos, and Audience
In your mind, who is the audience for your larger project? Who will you report your findings to, and why does this audience make sense as the audience to write for?
This topic is for those who have "smart" devises and for those who want to understand what artificial intelligence can do for them. I will be reporting my findings to my Weebly. The reason why this audience makes sence for this topic is because it can give people a better understanding of what is actually going on.
How will you explain your CRQ and project’s exigency to this audience?
The way that I will explain my CRQ is by breaking it down and explaining why there is such a exigency.
How will you show this audience that this is the opportune, right, or kairotic time to explore your CRQ (be sure to think about what you read and wrote in the discussion forum on exigency and kairos).
What I will be able to do is use real life factual products and break them down. I will also use other examples so that the readers can relate to what I'm trying to portray.
Writer's Journal #3 - Discourse Communities as Audiences
As you think about your CRQ, what are the potential discourse communities you might be writing for? Put another way, who are the other groups that might be thinking about, writing on, and/or acting as a result of your CRQ?
Just in my community alone I already have had conversations about how artificial intelligence could help us out. There is a man that cant turn his head around because he suffered a bad neck injury. So he bought himself a car that was able to park itself. That is just the tip of the iceberg of what it yet to come.
How might the discourse communities you describe above affect how you conduct inquiry? What will count as “evidence” with that audience?
As far as the evidence goes its it all around. Just about everyone I know around me has some sort of "smart" device. These devices are "suppose" to make our lives more enjoyable. There will be several example that I will be able to use in my community alone that the audience can relate too.
How might the discourse communities you describe above affect how you compose any texts directed at them as an audience?
I can basically break it down in parts that already have affected our community or even our neighborhood. What I would do is start from when I moved in the area. Then I would break it down for every item that I use that relates or has artificial intelligence and see how that relates to them.
