Expert Interview Questions

  1. Can artificial intelligence overtake human jobs?
  2. What are the implications of artificial intelligence on genetic engineering?
  3. Is the use of artificial intelligence to perform human tasks damaging to the working population?
  4. Is genetic engineering ethical? What limits must be set with genetic engineering to make sure the technology is not taken too far?

Beth Black Reflection

From Beth’s presentation, I was able to learn about the variety of resources that Ohio State students have at their disposal. The library consists of a database in which students can use search functions to find scholarly papers and other resources that can help them in not only research but data, such as graphs, tables, figures, and/or images. This is important because knowing how to use the library to its fullest extent, and understanding all the resources it has to offer, helps students succeed academically. I will likely be using this information in my classes in the future, as many of them involve research and academic papers. Therefore, since I know how to properly search the database and use its features to their fullest extent, it will be easier for me to find sources efficiently.

Potential Experts to Interview

  • My dad, Yongjian Wang, who works at a software engineering company and has experience with artificial intelligence as well as its parts. He also has studied the role software plays in aviation and transportation.
  • A family friend, Dr. Zhang, who studied neuroscience and now works as the head of a research lab at the University of Cincinnati. The focus of their lab is to use artificial intelligence to create medications that will cure certain genetic diseases as well as possibly improve medical procedures.

Interview Topic

My interview topic is going to be artificial intelligence, as I plan to minor in Computer Information Systems.

Group 4, Class 1

Should First-Year students be allowed to have cars on campus?

First year students should be allowed to have cars on campus.

Reasons:

  1. Many students live off-campus and commute to school, and because of this, it is much easier for them to drive to school.
  2. Most first year students can already drive legally, since the legal driving age is 16.
  3. Students sometimes need to go off campus, and many buses only come every 30-40 minutes, so it would save time for them to drive themselves to where they need to go.

Citations:

  • About 30,000 of students at Ohio State commute to school, out of a student body size of 66,000 (Eshun).
  • 87% of drivers obtain their license at the age of 16 (U.S. Department of Transportation).
