Assignment Question

Develop a 5–10-minute video presentation, where you will be expected to talk about and present 5-10 PowerPoint slides on a case study/topic from either Machine See Machine Do or Weapons of Math Destruction. use the STAR approach to create your presentation. The Situation:

Explain the context of the problem in detail e.g., predicting child abuse The Task: What needed to be accomplished i.e., what steps were taken to accomplish the goal? e.g., model developed that flags children at risk so that Child Services can contact families The Action: What was the tool that was developed? Feel free to dig deeper and talk about what model was developed, using what data for example? e.g., used personally identifiable data and history with child services to develop a linear model The Result: What was the result and outcome? Was it what was intended? Or was it something else?

What are the potential pitfalls that were discovered? e.g. The model began flagging families that had history with child services more often than others clearly being highly biased towards families that had any previous interactions and was not very good at flagging cases of child abuse for families with no history with the child services. Suggested Format: Title / Cover Slide Situation (1-2 slides) Task (1-2 slides) Action (1-2 slides) Result (1-2 slides) References/Final Slide
