Choose this news item:
Journalism and AI: Levin, S. (August 8, 2019). Revealed: how Monsanto’s ‘intelligence center’ targeted journalists and activists. The Guardian. Retrieved from: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/aug/07/monsanto-fusion-center-journalists-roundup-neil-young
Read through the news item carefully and thoroughly, keeping an eye out for evidence related to O’Neil’s three components of “Weapons of Math Destruction”.
Research the specific use of algorithmic decision-making discussed in the article you selected. Your goal in this research is to provide a full explanation of:
What is algorithmic decision making and why is it important to understand its use?
The use of this type of algorithmic decision-making tool described and why it is significant.
How this type of algorithmic decision-making would line up with each of O’Neil’s three components (transparency, damage or potential for damage, and scale).
Your research used for your reference guide should include at least eight sources that you identified (not counting the original news item from the assignment’s list or Weapons of Math Destruction)of which at least two must be audio or video and at least two must be peer-reviewed sources from scholarly journals. In your write-up, you will also need to cite the news item and the Weapons of Math Destruction book, for a minimum of ten sources in total for the assignment.
Synthesize your research to develop a one-page reference guide for readers to have their questions related to the news item answered. The Word count for this guide should be approximately 1200-1500 words excluding references.
Sources for information on the site must be listed in APA style using full citations for the sources at the bottom of the page in a separate section. When preparing the “Sources” section be sure to also cite the Weapons of Math Destruction book as well as the original news item that you’ve been researching for the assignment! In all, you should wind up with at least ten sources.
Add six subheadings titled “Overview of Algorithmic Decision Making”, “Transparency”, “Potential for Problems”, “Scale”, “Conclusions”, and “Sources” to your Google Sites page. Each of these subheadings should include a discussion supported by source(s) you have found to be helpful in understanding that aspect of the reference guide’s topic.
Images and video are often helpful for explaining different aspects of the use of this technology and should be embedded appropriately. Captions explaining the image/video’s context and identifying its source are strongly encouraged wherever possible.
