Title: Behavioral Biometrics
For this essay identify the issues or ethical questions in this area, and analyze the ethical, social, economic, and/or legal aspects of these issues. You should identify at least one ethical question identified to which you apply the 10 steps of our ethical analysis framework, analyzing possible policies, identifying stakeholders and consequences, and drawing and supporting a conclusion. you should go beyond that simple framework in two ways.
First, you should look at the issues from multiple angles (for example, if you were to write an extended analysis of vulnerability selling, you might analyze the policies and issues from three perspectives: those of the vulnerability researchers/sellers, the technology companies, and policymakers).
Second, you should also include at least two specific cases or incidents. For example, if you chose copyright and freedom of information, you might consider the cases of Aaron Swartz, the Viacom v. YouTube case, and the Napster case, discussing the ethical issues and how they have been interpreted in different contexts.
Topic Paragraph and General Outline
The topic outline is a short summary of your intended topic area (the topic, the main issues, and specific cases/incidents if you have identified some) including some general explanation of why you chose it and how it is relevant for the class. The topic paragraph is just meant to be a single short paragraph, but of course, you are free to write more if the muse inspires you. Regarding the outline, using a standard outline format, describe the various sections that you intend to use. Remember, a well-organized paper including headings will greatly help the readability of your final product.
Paper Organization and Draft Paper
Since this is a fairly long paper, it should be organized into sections the way that a scientific paper or longer magazine article would be, with section titles (and subsections if appropriate) that help the reader to follow the flow of the paper and identify the main sections.
Research papers should include a set of references (material that you used as you were researching the topic and that has influenced what you wrote, whether or not you are citing it specifically as a source).
In general, follow the same expectations as you would for evaluating the reliability of a source. Good reliable sources often include books, peer-reviewed technical articles in an academic journal, newspaper or magazine articles in an “establishment” publication (i.e., a professional print publication, not an online blog or open-source website), or professional organization website (such as the American Medical Association or the American Meteorological Society).
Most of your sources should be these kinds of references, but at times, there are few sources especially for very modern topics. In those circumstances you may need to use “informal” sources in your references if you have used them for background or to help you research the topic. Rather than using sources like Wikipedia, take the minute to look at the references used in the Wikipedia article and use those. Do not use Wikipedia as a reference in this final paper.
Just ask me if you have any questions about whether a source would be considered legitimate.
Your bibliography should be neatly and consistently formatted using APA formatting.
Using the Ethical Analysis Framework, try to be as specific as possible!
1. First, read the Many Faces of Gender Inequality:
a. Sen, A. (2011). “Many Faces of Gender Inequality”. November 9, 2001. (https://www.sas.upenn.edu/~dludden/MANY%20FACES%20OF%20GENDER%20INEQUALITY.htm)
b. Adamson, M. and Beauregard, T. and Lup, D. “The Many Faces of Gender Inequality at Work”. August 3, 2018.
2. Read this University of Florida’s introduction to workplace diversity:
a. Green, K., Lopez, M. Wysocki, A., Kepner, K., Farnsworth, D., and Clark, J. (2002). “Diversity in the Workplace: Benefits, Challenges, and the Required Managerial Tools”. (https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/HR/HR02200.pdf)
3. Finally, look at the Harvard Business Review’s coverage of this topic:
a. Dobbin, F. and Kalev, A. (2016). “Why Diversity Programs Fail”. https://hbr.org/2016/07/why-diversity-programs-fail
Other resources of interest:
a. Barnes, P. (2019). “Is the EEOC Protecting Workers or Discriminatory Employers?”
4. Do your own research. What questions do you have that these articles haven’t answered? As you go through the rest of the process, you may find the need to do more research on specific questions or possible consequences.
5. While there are many different angles to this story, you do not need to include all of them. Decide what you want to focus on and what aspects of this situation you want to draw out. Don’t try to include every single thing that you’ve learned. (You would never be able to fit that in 2000 words.)
6. Use the first ten steps of the ethical analysis framework to organize your thoughts and develop your analysis. (You do not need to submit your notes in “ten-step format” and you will not have enough space to include all ten steps!)
7. Write your own cogent (which means “clear and understandable”) essay presenting your analysis. It should include all of the key information that you organized in your ten-step process, but it should not just be linearly presented as those ten pieces of information sequentially. (And whatever you do, do not start a sentence with, “The stakeholders in this case are…”)
Think about what conclusion you drew and use that as a thesis statement, then create a narrative structure that will let you support that thesis using the information from your analysis. You probably want to write an outline first to organize the general order in which you’ll present the information, and what you’ll say, before you write the final essay.
8. Start this assignment soon! Feel free to attend online office hours or email the TA to talk about your notes from the ten-step process, review your outline, or to look through parts of an early draft. Write the essay early enough that you have time to set it aside, let it rest, and then come back to it with a fresh eye to edit and proofread. It’s OK to ask a friend/peer to read and comment on your draft, but they should not rewrite it for you, and you should indicate what kind of editing help you received, if any.
9. Please be very careful about any quotations or wording you’d like to borrow from your sources, and quote and cite those sources appropriately, consistently with the course policy. You should also cite your sources for any specific facts, findings, or sources of expert opinions (but you don’t need to cite sources for general knowledge like what a zero-day vulnerability is).
10. Include a bibliography (list of references) that is easy to read and has full bibliographic information (not just URLs, even if you found a source online). Please use APA style for your style guide.
