The techinical writting | Computer Science homework help

 Topic: Artificial Intelligence: Formalizing Human Capabilities. 

Create an outline to be used to write the technical report.  Based on the topic you selected, what categories of information should be included in the paper?  If you were the reader of the report what would you want to know about the topic?  In addition to these considerations, an outline can be created using the information in the articles you have identified.

Headings required in the paper are the following; include other headings as needed.




Other major headings as needed

Subheadings as needed

Conclusions or summary


Include in this document a list of articles you have found so far which you are considering for inclusion in the report.  List the URLs and the title of the article. The article list does not have to be APA format for this assignment.  After each URL write a one sentence (or very short) summary of the contents of the article.  This information will be useful to you as you write your first draft.  It will help you to determine where the information in the article fits in your paper outline.

Put the outline and articles in a Word document and name the file as follows.



  Artificial Intelligence: Formalizing Human Capabilities. 

Technical Report Requirements

Title at the top of the first page (no title page)

Use your name as the author followed by the University information.  Example on the next line

Name, Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, A&M-Commerce

Headings in the paper include the following:

Abstract – bold font

Keywords– bold font

Introduction– bold font

Other major headings as needed– bold font

Subheadings as needed– use bold font

Conclusions or summary– bold font

References– bold font

Other requirements

Use acronyms when needed.  For the first use of an acronym, type the complete phrase followed by the acronym in parentheses.  For example, Bring Your Own Pencil (BYOP).  After the first use, you can just use the acronym.

Minimum of 15 pages single-spaced – not including tables, figures and references

Times New Roman 12 point

Standard margins – 1in top, bottom, left and right

Do not use two columns as in the example article

In text” citations and the reference list at the end of the paper must be in APA format. 

Tables must be identified as a Table with a number and title after the table

Figures must be identified as a Figure with a number and title after the figure

If you did not create the table or figure, you must include an ‘in text’ citation so the reader can identify the source of the figure or table.

References at end must be in alphabetic order – see article from Week 1 for indentation format for the complete reference.  For each reference in the list, you must have an ‘in text’ citation in APA format.  If you do not cite a paper then do not include it in the reference list.  This will be checked.  In the reference list, the first line of the reference will be at the left margins and all remaining lines for each reference will be indented a few spaces just like this requirement has been done.

The URLs below contain information about citing references in the text of your document, ‘in text citation’, and creating the reference list at the end of the document. Use APA format in the report for references at the end of the paper and the ‘in text’ citations.
