Communication Studies – Internal Assessment

TABLE OF CONTENTS
The theme of “Technology” and topic of “Artificial Intelligence in Society” was chosen as I found it very intruding because I grew up being exposed to all sorts of technological and electronic equipment. I have always been interested in technology and I have always tried to keep up with its rapid advances. My target audience is teenagers between the ages of 16-19 years of age. From previous knowledge, I have found that the term artificial intelligence is commonly misinterpreted and tied to robots who can “think” for themselves. Although that does fall under the topic artificial intelligence, it is just a small part of it and I wanted to research, know and share the real, broader meaning of it. I am studying in order to pursue a career in medicine, and though it might seem unrelated, artificial intelligence is increasingly becoming a bigger part in that field. The knowledge that I will gain from researching this topic will greatly benefit me in the future as it will expose me to the types of equipments and material, related to artificial intelligence, which I will be around if I become a surgeon. My Internal Assessment portfolio is sectionalised into four major segments:- 1. Introduction
2. Preface – Containing my inspiration and reasons for my reflective piece. 3. Reflective – Dramatic piece about Artificial Intelligence. 4. Analytical – Analysis of dialectal variation and language registers from my reflective.
The main purpose of my reflective piece is to expose the meaning of artificial intelligence and how it is found in everyday society. This piece was written as a dramatic play because I have taken part and I am currently in a drama group. Therefore I am exposed and comfortable with drama scripts. It is intended to grab the attention and educate people who have little or no knowledge of how artificial intelligence is around us is used and evolving constantly. This play takes place at a technology exposition where many technological devices are being showcased and demonstrated. It is a public event filled with many different people from different backgrounds. The characters in this play are in a conference where Professor Gregory, an expert in the artificial intelligence field is explaining to construction workers, Mr. Brown and his overseer Mr. Smith, how their job can be made easier using modern technology. Mr. Brown is a fairly old man who is “old fashion” and isn’t accustomed to using modern technology.
