Assignment Description Instructions: Each group have to select two of the following topicsone from each tablegiven below (Table-1 and Table-2). Read three or more articles about each topic. These articles can be from the web, books or journals. – Task 1 Write a report about one topic from the first table covering and detailing the areas to be explored.Make sure to identify features of each topic area in consideration with user centric design and user experiences. Write a section at the end of the report on future work that can be considered to improve on user interface. – Task 2 Provide a PowerPoint presentation about a topic from the second table. The presentation should have at least 10 slides and students should talk for 8 -10 minutes. Both students should participate in the demonstration. Further instructions: – Do not copy and paste, all slides and the report materials have to be written in your own words. – Do notuse Wikipedia as neither source nor reference. – Read 2 or 3 articles from the web, books, journals, etc for each topic then rewrite it using your own words. – Use IEEE style referencing, and be sure and properly reference any diagrams/ graphics. – In all cases, concentrate on the aspects of the topic that concern NAM. – Build on the topics that we discuss in lecture and labs in BN208. Submissions: Each group has to submit one-word document which includes task 1 and task 2. At the end of task 1, copy the slides from task 2 and paste it into the same document then upload it to the Moodle. Table -1 Choose any ONE Topic.
