This is the requirement of the Essay 3
Background: We’ve discussed, and continue to discuss, different aspects of how Artificial Intelligence has, and continues, to change our lives and the world we live in. We’ve read different sub-topics connected to Artificial Intelligence and considered how the future of A.I. may be both positive, and negative, for humanity. We’ve practiced making arguments about these topics, and using rhetorical appeals to persuade our audience. We’ll also learn how to include opposing views to further appeal to ethos and persuade. We’ll continue working on MLA format, and practice how to conduct research to find evidence for our arguments.
Your Task: It’s now your turn to enter into the conversation. Consider what we’ve read this unit, and the different topics we’ve explored related to Artificial Intelligence.

Then, write a persuasive essay, using your research and the readings as support, to make an argument about your chosen topic.
