Description : WINNER: The 2018 McGannon Center Book Prize and shortlisted for the Goddard Riverside Stephan Russo Book Prize for Social Justice The New York Times Book Review: "Riveting." Naomi Klein: "This book is downright scary." Ethan Zuckerman, MIT: "Should be required reading." Dorothy Roberts, author of Killing the Black Body: "A must-read." Astra Taylor, author of The People's Platform: "The single most important book about technology you will read this year." Cory Doctorow: "Indispensable." A powerful investigative look at data-based discrimination—and how technology affects civil and human rights and economic equity The State of Indiana denies one million applications for healthcare, foodstamps and cash benefits in three years—because a new computer system interprets any mistake as “failure to cooperate.” In Los Angeles, an algorithm calculates the comparative vulnerability of tens of thousands of homeless people in order to prioritize them for an inadequate pool of housing resources. In Pittsburgh, a child welfare agency uses a statistical model to try to predict which children might be future victims of abuse or neglect. Since the dawn of the digital age, decision-making in finance, employment, politics, health and human services has undergone revolutionary change. Today, automated systems—rather than humans—control which neighborhoods get policed, which families attain needed resources, and who is investigated for fraud. While we all live under this new regime of data, the most invasive and punitive systems are aimed at the poor. In Automating Inequality, Virginia Eubanks systematically investigates the impacts of data mining, policy algorithms, and predictive risk models on poor and working-class people in America. The book is full of heart-wrenching and eye-opening stories, from a woman in Indiana whose benefits are literally cut off as she lays dying to a family in Pennsylvania in daily fear of losing their daughter because they fit a certain statistical profile. The U.S. has always used its most cutting-edge science and technology to contain, investigate, discipline and punish the destitute. Like the county poorhouse and scientific charity before them, digital tracking and automated decision-making hide poverty from the middle-class public and give the nation the ethical distance it needs to make inhumane choices: which families get food and which starve, who has housing and who remains homeless, and which families are broken up by the state. In the process, they weaken democracy and betray our most cherished national values. This deeply researched and passionate book could not be more timely.

Description : This volume traces the history of knowledge, information, and cognate categories as variables in economic thought, from their first appearance in early classical economics, through their place in neo-classical, institutional, and neo-institutional economics, to their role in contemporary investigations in economic psychology. It argues that revision of the methodological assumptions of mainstream economics are necessary to capturing and modeling accurately the welfare implications of information technology innovation and design and adoption process in society.

Description : This volume contains the papers presented at the Eleventh International Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE-11) held in Saratoga Springs, NY, inJune 1992. A total of 136 papers were submitted for presentation by researchers from nearly 20 countries. Papers covered many topics including: resolution; term rewriting; natural deduction; theorem proving, in particular in algebra and geometry; parallel theoremprovers; unification theory; constraint solving; logic programing; verification; multivalued, temporal and nonclassical logics; non-monotonic reasoning; planning; proof theory; higher-order logics; and inductive theorem proving. Each submission was reviewed by at least three program committee members and 46 papers were selected for presentation and publication. This volume also contains short descriptions of 23 implementations of automated deduction systems. The volume opens with a keynote address by Larry Wos, winner of the first Herbrand Award for Distinguished Contributions to Automated Reasoning.

Description : This paper aims to explain whether the great decoupling has influenced growing income inequality between high and low skilled labor. Recent findings have demonstrated that beginning in the 1980s there grew a gap between productivity and income, known as the great decoupling. This is due to growing technological advancements. Technology has contributed to inequality between high and low skilled labor by creating higher-skilled jobs that work with technology and automating "routine tasks" in low skilled jobs, such as manufacturing. A case study related to the rubber companies in Northeast Ohio- Firestone, Goodyear, B.F. Goodrich, and General Tire- will be conducted to analyze the effects of technology on the labor force. These claims will be further addressed with Regression Analysis to analyze the effect of technology on income inequality with other manufacturing states in the "Rust Belt". The results/findings will have practical implications for businesses in relation to automation.
