Post #1-Choosing my topic

Finding my topic was generally hard, mainly because I had so many ideas. Since I am so interested in Technology, I decided that my topic would revolve around Technology. I had 4 topics that I wanted to do. My first one that I wanted to do is generally how AI powered robotics improved humans, but that was very broad, and although Ms. Edwards said to start broad, it was way too broad. The topic was interesting though and came to my advantage because then I later realized how the idea was useful because I was generally motivated to learn, and that I had as topic that I was passionate about, so it would be easier to find a topic by using a factor of me being passionate about topics.

Later on, I brainstormed topics that were related to AI Robotics, and then I came across some more: Data and research gaining from AI based computers medically related topics, and also how AI chess computers are programmed, and also how they have affected humans play better chess, and generally gain more knowledge about the chess industry, including history. I thought these 2 newly developed topics were very interesting, and I wanted to more deeply research them. I then used the same method that I used before, determined to see what can even further motivate me, and generally what I would be the most passionate about in the long term. What I decided I would be the most passionate about in the long term is AI data gaining from computations medically related topics. This translates into AI based computers gaining knowledge from historical cell actions made by scientists, which really interests me because is it technology related, but also generally improves humans and is more efficient which I also deeply care about.

And then after that, I finally used all of the information from research and attempts in choosing my topic to bring the medical topic down a little bit. I then choose as my final topic which is about the robotics doing surgery for humans, and not the robotics that do the surgery are the main focus, Burt the main focus is then the robots that do the surgery physical of the surgery, then robots that do the surgery collect data from the surgery, computers analyze the information, and the humans then program the Robots to do better based on the data that the computers collect from the robots in the first place. I also was wondering how can we improve this formula of surgery, so this ended up to be my topic: the data that is collected from robotic surgery, and how the data provided by the robots that do surgery can be improved so that the robots can do better surgery.

Generally speaking, there were many complications revolving around my topic selection, but I used my failures to motivate me and to better pick a topic. It was stressful, but I have to stay optimistic if I am going to survive this long journey.

    I think that you were really descriptive about your experience and explained a lot. I also like how you told us all the other topics that you might of picked. The only thing I think the ending was very dramatic. Overall it was a very good blog post.
