Topic: Criminal Justice Technology

Description

Note: There are 3 parts to this assignment.

In the IP this week there are three parts. In part one you are asked to pick a successful high-tech program and discuss how it prevailed over another. For instance how, why did IBM win out over other computer manufacturers such as Digital Equipment? See this article on companies that lose their edge at https://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/flowchart/2010/08/19/10-great-companies-that-lost-their-edge for more examples. In part two of the IP you are to discuss the erroneous idea that technology can “solve all problems.” In part three you will present a Key Assignment Draft. The Key Assignment is a report summarizing the role of technology in society and assessing the efforts of the US to harness it to reduce terrorism.

Part 1
You have been asked to present at a conference on homeland security (HLS), critical infrastructure protection, and technology-based solutions. Pick a success story of one program over another (from the examples below or from your own research).
• Competing computer manufacturers
• Competing search engines
• Competing social media sites
• NASA Apollo versus NASA Shuttle
• NASA versus a competing space organization
Include the following in your presentation:
• Briefly summarize a previous HLS-related problem or issue and associated technological solution.
• Describe the program and source of success that you picked.
• Explain why these programs succeeded where others failed that were better resourced.
• Cite a plausible counterexample if there is one.
• Address what attributes government and private industry might share in their failures.
• Supply a brief conclusion about what you can learn from this story.
Support your arguments with authoritative sources, and apply appropriate APA formatting guidelines.

Part 2
Can technology solve all of the problems? Craft a thought piece for a cyber conference of technology experts. Include your thoughts on the following:
• The physical, legal, and ethical boundaries of technology
• The possibility of achieving results without technology
• The advantages and disadvantages of technology (i.e., unintended consequences)
o Does the end justify the means?
• When technology should be paramount, and when should it be sidelined
• What society should truly expect from the future
Support your arguments with authoritative sources, and apply appropriate APA formatting guidelines.

Part 3
Key Assignment Draft
This week, you will submit a draft of your Key Assignment for grading and instructor feedback. Draw from the first 3 weeks of this course, and revise helpful elements of your first 3 weeks’ worth of assignments for inclusion in your Key Assignment draft. For the assignment, you will be drafting a report summarizing the role of technology in society and assessing the efforts of the United States to harness it to reduce the threat of terrorism.
The paper will focus on the following:
• Consideration of strategic, operational, and tactical uses of technology
• Consideration of ethics and privacy in the employment of technology
• Identification and assessment of alternative policies to address a HLS technology challenge
• Respective roles of the public and private sectors in developing, employing, and funding HLS technologies
Your paper will conclude with recommendations to the President of the United States on the following:
• Should the United States stay on the current course of technological investment? Explain your answer.
• Should the United States increase its technological investment? If so, how?
• Should the United States abandon current development in favor of an alternative strategy? If so, what strategy would you propose?
