The technical topic (Dept. of Computer Science) that I will be researching is about MQTT servers and how devices are able to communicate with each other using this network protocol. The technical topic will involve creating a server to host this network protocol and analyzing the inner workings of how devices communicate with one another. This is an important field of study because of the rapidly growing field of IoT (internet of things) as devices are being used more and more to communicate with one another. This impacts the daily lives of people all over the world, so it is an important topic that should be researched.

In my prospectus, I will be analyzing the relationship between Artificial Intelligence and consciousness. This is an age-old debate in philosophy and computer science. It will be researched through the lens of automated vehicles and automated weapons.

The technical subject of the STS prospectus and the technical topic for the Dept. of Computer Science is not related.
