A critical part of this course is identifying a suitable topic for you research proposal. This can be
ived at in several ways:
• exploring an area you are already interested in or an emerging area of technology like
artificial intelligence or virtual reality
• considering the application of specific types of IT to an application area you have knowledge
of such as healthcare or agriculture
• following up on an aspect of IT you found interesting in your course
• investigating a topical issue from the news, such as a recent cybersecurity threat or the
introduction of electronic health records
The list below is of some sample topics and research questions which students have considered in
ecent semesters. You cannot use these directly – you must come up with your own topic. However
they give an indication as to the sort of topic which would be suitable for your research proposal.
If you are having problems identifying a topic, or have concerns that your topic may not be suitable,
please discuss this with your tutor and/or lecturer.
What are the user’s perceptions and understanding of the security implications of using static and
dynamic web pages?
How are data mining techniques used to detect frauds in the banking sector?
What are the causes of post-implementation issues in enterprise systems?
How can visualisation contribute to effective data analysis?
How can cloud computing facilitate organisational communication?
How can wearable sensors aid in health monitorization?
Scope and Implementation of Artificial Intelligence in the Tesla Roadster
Can a predictive model using big data analytics help prevent credit card fraud?
How does informed understanding of security processes by the user effect Android device security
and its vulnerabilities?
The use of artificial Intelligence in health
What can Australia’s My Health Record System learn from recent health data
Will the application of the Internet of Things in the transportation area affect people’s travel
The involvement of information technology in agriculture.

Assessment Details
The report requires a critical analysis of literature relevant to a proposal. The purpose of the task is to help
students identify and analyse relevant literature to assist in determining an appropriate topic for the research

You are required to submit:
• An interim research proposal XXXXXXXXXXwords) to provide context for your choice of literature.
• A synthesis matrix (as described in class). This should discuss at least 6 articles, and at least 5 or 6
main ideas discussed in those articles. Choose your articles carefully – these should be relevant to the
core ideas of your chosen topic, and as far as possible published in reputable, peer-reviewed sources.
If you have concerns about the quality of an article, discuss this with your tutor during lab classes.
• A list of references named in the synthesis matrix. These should be in APA referencing style.

You have already done quite a bit of work for this research in tutorials: you should have a tentative research
issue, strategies and evidence to persuade your readers about the significance of the problem you’re
esearching, as well as the validity of your research issues. You also should consider opposing views or good
counter-arguments that you can address in order to help establish your credibility and enhance the relevance of
your paper.

A. Interim Research Proposal
The submission must contain the following sections, submitted in the order as listed below-
• Title – proposal title (10 words maximum)
• Proposal - summarization of the significant concepts in the proposed study focusing on
key aspects (200 words max)

B. Synthesis Matrix

Article #1 Article #2 …. Article #6

anch of engineering that concerns about using the computer and latest technology to improve the productivity and minimize the cost. Agriculture is from one of the biggest employer that provides employment to a lot of people mainly in rural areas so it becomes an important sector to focus on. Food productivity can be increased on large scale by effective use of Information Technology (IT). So in this article we’ll learn why we need IT in agriculture, how IT can revolutionize the traditional agriculture pattern and how it will change the upcoming future of the agriculture.
· Why Advancement?
Advancement means using better techniques and technology to get the maximum output from the available resources. Every sector needs the advancement whether it is health, industrial or agriculture. According to a study we will have nearly 10 billion people to feed by 2050 so we need advancement in this field to take the productivity to the maximum level. In 2014 agriculture accounted for nearly one third of global gross domestic product demonstrating the need to include the modern technology in the agriculture sector.
· Information Technology in Agriculture
Information technology can be used in the modern agriculture in various ways. Some of the way that demonstrate IT role in agriculture is given below:
· Information and Communication Technology
· Weather Forecasting Information
· Using GIS (Graphical Information System)
· Using Micro Controllers Devices like various sensors
· Challenges
Apart from all these advantages of IT in agriculture that we have we also...
