Some writings from me
Off the back of an extremely hectic 2021, 2022 definitely ended up being much less crazy, although kind of still just as busy - so generally a win. Only short reflections this year - not that much to say!
Governance of automated content moderation on Facebook and other social media platforms
In this paper we will explore the use of AI for content moderation at Meta's Facebook and how we might go about governing this effectively
Automated assessment - was the A-level grading algorithm fair?
In this paper, we will take a historical look at standardised testing, and then look at how design thinking can be applied to the issue of assessment while seeing how there is some overlap between the two
Do phenomena like microtargeting and 'hypernudging' constitute a threat to children's autonomy?
