INFOST 110: Introduction to Information Science and Technology (Spring 2016)

 

ASSIGNMENT #3

 

In class, we watched BBC Horizon’s The Age of Big Data, which explored the applications of data mining to policing, medicine, investing, advertising, and astronomy (If you missed the screening or want to review the film, there is a link in the week 9 content on D2L.). Select one of these applications and discuss it in relation to the Masuda, May, and Postman readings we did at the start of the semester. Also, find a news article or academic article that discusses the application you chose to help you prepare your answer (for example, there is a lot written about predictive policing)What are some of the advantages of the application? Does your application fulfill any of Masuda’s 17 predictions for the Information Society? What are some of the drawbacks (recall Postman and May)
