Use good research to compliment and use citation from quote below and other credible sourcing. Do not exceed 100 word count of verbatim quotations. The rest must be paraphrased, i.e. in your own words.
Paraphrased materials should also be referenced, usually at the end of a paragraph when you are finished presenting information form a source.
You should not use any class materials in the essay.
The exception here is terminology; but of course you should and must use terminology (e.g. machine learning, narrow AI and so on).
Formulate and explain your position regarding the following extract by Yuval Harari. What do you think the future holds for humankind from the perspective of AI. Refer to some of the potential problems discussed in class.
“After 4 billion years of organic life evolving by natural selection, science is ushering in the era of inorganic life shaped by intelligent design. In the process, Homo sapiens itself will likely disappear. Today we are still apes of the hominid family. We still share with Neanderthals and chimpanzees most of our bodily structures, physical abilities and mental faculties. Not only are our hands, eyes and brains distinctly hominid, but so are our lust, our love, anger and social bonds. Within a century or two, the combination of biotechnology and AI might result in bodily, physical and mental traits that completely break free of the hominid mould. Some believe that consciousness might even be severed from any organic structure, and could surf cyberspace free of all biological and physical constraints. On the other hand, we might witness the complete decoupling of intelligence from consciousness, and the development of AI might result in a world dominated by super-intelligent but completely non-conscious entities.”

4d) Your essay must have the following three chapters and chapter titles:
You may add short subtitles if you wish, e.g. »Introduction: the emergence of Christianity«. Optionally, you may use sub-chapters for any or all of the main chapters.
Grades are awarded in accordance with the rubrics outlined in this document. It is every student’s responsibility to read the rubrics and ensure you understand them. You should arrange a tutorial if you are unsure about any aspect of the assignment or the grading process.
Once awarded, grades are non-negotiable and only in specific circumstances can a student request a review of the grade (see Student Handbook, p. 15). Reasons such as that you worked hard, invested a lot of time, had higher grades in other assignments or courses, want a higher aggregate or feel that you deserve a better grade are not valid grounds for increasing a mark.
If you feel treated unfairly or aggrieved by the grade awarded for this assignment, you are entitled to make a formal complaint to the deanery in which you need to clearly outline your reasons for requesting that the assignment be re-graded.
It is every student’s responsibility to ensure that all written work is original and their own and that quotations are correctly marked as such and referenced in line with APA format.
The professor cannot grant extensions. Assignment extensions can only be requested from the deanery. If you request an extension, you should clearly state your extenuating circumstances and be able to support them with official documents. Unless it is a highly pressing matter, extensions should be made well in advance of the assignment deadline,
i.e. not a week before the due date.
