Auditing Algorithms: Adding Accountability to Automated Authority

February 13, 2018

Auditing Algorithms: Adding Accountability to Automated Authority
http://auditingalgorithms.science/

Auditing Algorithms: Adding Accountability to Automated Authority is a group of events designed to produce a white paper that will help to define and develop the emerging research community for “algorithm auditing.” Algorithmic Auditing is a research design that has shown promise in diagnosing the unwanted consequences of algorithmic systems. Automated software-based systems in finance, media, information, transportation, learning, or any application of computing can easily create outcomes that are unforeseeable by their designers, so algorithm auditing has the potential to improve the design of these systems by making their consequences visible. Auditing in this sense takes its name from the social scientific “audit study” where one feature is manipulated in a field experiment, although it is also reminiscent of a financial audit. These events and the resulting white paper proposes to coalesce this new area of inquiry and to produce a report characterizing the state of the art and potential future directions. Participants and white paper co-authors will have opportunities to clarify the potential dangers of algorithmic systems, to specify these dangers as new research problems, to articulate challenges that they face as researchers interested in this area, to present existing methods for auditing or needs for new methods, and to propose research agendas that can provide new insights that advance science and benefit society. This initiative is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and co-organized by the University of Michigan, the University of Illinois, and Harvard University. Events are hosted at the University of Michigan. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

BPubs.com – Business Publications Directory Based Internet Search Engine

February 12, 2018

BPubs.com – Business Publications Directory Based Internet Search Engine
http://www.bpubs.com/

BPubs.com is a directory based Internet search engine that strives to cover the topic of Business Publications. By eliminating the noise of “homepages, index pages, and other extraneous web site components”, our users are able to extract what they truly searching for – content. Our target audience of corporate and business users will become repeat visitors because we save them time finding the information they need. BPubs.com has embraced the “Collection Development” approach, placing standards on the site’s content selection criteria. Their site has been developed with the “Business User” in mind – an audience that certainly can appreciate the value of time. Their audience can include anyone from Small Business Owners to the CEO’s of major corporations, and can vary from those interested in starting a Business, to those conducting academic research at a major University. Ultimately, their audience is interested in the challenges of “business success”. Their collection is made up of Business Publications and longer Articles. The source of these publications can vary greatly: from Government Agencies, to online Business Zines, to Consulting companies making their expertise available for public consumption. Best of all, they won’t index a publication unless it’s available free of charge. Their niche is to direct business users to quality business content. For businesses providing content, they offer a new method of marketing a firm’s expertise – through its publications. Unlike marketing a website, submitting publications can gather a highly targeted audience. For the end user, expertise and research is offered for free; and if you’re looking for help, what better way to evaluate expertise than to review a paper written by a potential consultant. BPubs.com is simply dedicated to better access of business information on the Internet. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Groups of libraries broader than the individual institutions (individual libraries, libraries within the same university system, or public library county branch system) are shown in bold.

United States Government Manual

United States Government Manual

As the official handbook of the Federal Government, The United States Government Manual provides information on the agencies of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches. It also includes information on quasi-official agencies; international organizations in which the United States participates; and boards, commissions, and committees. The Manual begins with reprints of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. A typical agency description includes a list of officials heading major operating units, a summary statement of the agency’s purpose and role in the Federal Government, a brief history of the agency, including its legislative or executive authority, and a description of its programs and activities, and information, addresses, and phone numbers to help users locate detailed information on consumer activities, contracts and grants, employment, publications, and other matters of public interest. The Manual is published as a special edition of the Federal Register (see 1 CFR 9.1). Its focus is on programs and activities. Persons interested in detailed organizational structure, the regulatory documents of an agency, or Presidential documents should refer to the Federal Register or one of its other special editions. FDsys contains the U.S. Government Manual for 1995-96 and all subsequent editions to the present. The online version and electronic publication of The Manual is available annually to the Public. Documents are available as ASCII text and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files, and more recent years are available in XML. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
