Don't forget to properly cite all sources (including assigned readings) and include a bibliography with all homework assignments.
Reading assignment: October 10-October 24 readings
1. [25 points] Write a short summary of each of the required readings (3-7 sentences each - do not exceed 7 sentences!). 12-unit students: also read and write a summary of one optional reading paper. After each summary (in a separate paragraph) provide a "highlight" for that chapter. This can be something new you learned that you found particularly interesting, a point you would like to discuss further in class, a question the chapter did not fully answer, something you found confusing, a point you disagree with, or anything else you found noteworthy.
3. [25 points] Reflect on your visit to the CMU Biometrics Lab. Did you see any technology that raises privacy concerns, or any technology that helps address privacy concerns? Write a one-page essay discussing ways privacy is impacted by biometrics, approaches for mitigating biometrics-related privacy concerns, and where more research may be needed to better address privacy concerns.
4. [25 points] The table below contains information from the course roster for a hypothetical CMU class. Suppose some researchers were interested in finding out whether there was any correlation between grades in this class and student college, department, or class.
Note, Chpater 4 introduces the concepts you need. If you need further clarification, check out this blog post or for even deeper insights, the l-diversity paper.
