These topics are generic and you must produce a focused presentation on a current

to that problem. It is imperative that you consult current research literature to find a
novel problem for one of the above general topics.
For the Powerpoint presentation, you will be expected to submit:

b) accompanying detailed notes for each slide (using the Notes Pages facility in
Powerpoint) which outline what you would expect to say if you were subsequently to

Your presentation must also include a slide which justifies the topic you have chosen against
