1 Oral presentation \Five Minute Thesis” { (Learning Outcome 5)

The task is to give a talk in a style similar to a \Three Minute Thesis” (but for five minutes, to
make it easier). The idea is to give a short talk that is carefully structured so as to communicate
your work to an intelligent, non-expert audience.

In the written work (described below), you are asked to include a related work section.

Your related work section should use the material from your background research for the topic
of your talk. (This should focus your thought and involve less time commitment.)

The methods and research sections in the written work focus on the analysis of data.

If you are a master’s students, you should consider one of these related topics:

• use of unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance

• human/machine teaming (eg in-built AI in machines) { how do the machines interact
with the humans?

• how do humans respond to unreliable AI? (eg drones taking images when they should
not do so, driverless cars running people down etc).

If you are a PGR student, you should give a presentation about your research topic.

Whichever topic you choose for your presentation, there may be a slightly loose connection
between the related work/literature review section of your paper and the methods and results
section of your paper { and this is perfectly acceptable and will not be penalised.

The important points are:

• Your audience:

{ is intelligent;
{ knows about computing in general;
{ will not be expert in your topic, so avoid specialist knowledge and jargon (i.e. spe
cialised technical terms);
{ will need you to explain your complex ideas simply.

• Form of your talk:

{ you are allowed:
∗ 1 title slide
∗ 2 content slides
∗ 1 summary slide;
{ if you use more than 4 slides in total, your presentation will be marked only up to
the point of the fourth slide;
{ slides can only contain text and still images (e.g. photographs, diagrams);
{ additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files) are not permitted;
{ your presentation must be spoken and must not use additional aids, for instance
singing, musical instruments, costumes, additional speakers, puppets, etc.

• The content of your talk

{ you have five minutes in which to deliver your talk from the first moment you start
{ aim to tell the audience:
∗ what your research or topic is;
∗ how you study or research your topic;
∗ what you have discovered;
∗ why it is important for your audience to know about your topic.

• Style of presentation

{ you have to quickly get your audience’s attention – do you have some \hook” that
will catch their attention?
{ think about how you will speak. Show enthusiasm.

• Some advice

{ five minutes isn’t very long. Practise your talk;
{ search the web for \3 Minute Thesis” or \3MT” – but the \real 3 Minute Thesis”
competitions allows you to only use one slide.
{ you are not required to use LATEX Beamer but you may wish to use it.

• What to submit

{ a video recording of your talk;
{ a copy of your slides (in PDF format).

2 Written work { (Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5)

The purpose of this work is for you to develop and practice your skills in writing a scientific
paper. There are two main parts to this: presenting the intellectual content of your work;
structuring your work in an appropriate form for a scientific paper.

2.1 Content of your paper

The content of this coursework has to include Introduction, Literature Review, Methods, Re
sults and Conclusion sections in your paper.

The starting point is the topic of your oral presentation. The purpose of this written
assessment is to develop skills in preparing a research paper. However, you are not expected
to carry out a full research investigation – there simply is not enough time. You are asked to
take your oral presentation topic as a starting point and to use this topic to invent the study
you would undertake, building on your presentation topic.

You are asked to provide a literature review based on the topic of your oral presentation.

Your review should end with one or more research questions from which you should develop
hypotheses to be tested by experiment. Your methods section will describe how you would
carry through the experimental work.

Without experimental work, you will not have data and statistics to put into your paper.

You should show how you would present the outcomes of your work. In your results section,
you can include statistics of your own invention (or you may want to copy examples from
previous work). (Your statistical work will not be graded remember, this exercise
is about presentation.) Your results section must show how you interpret the outcomes of
your experiment.
