ACTIVITY 9 IMAT 637

Write a value proposition for the alternative you selected. An explanation of how to write a value proposition is provided in the reading titled Value Proposition, which also gives two examples of value propositions. You can model your value proposition after the examples. The reading and examples are available in the reference list.
The due date for posting your completed Activity 9 in your Assignments Folder is the end date of Week 7.
Please post your final Activity 9 to this link.

Photography and Cinema

In the 21st century, the smartphone camera changed the way we use and view photography. In addition, apps and social media have changed the way we share photography.
How has the invention of the smartphone camera changed photography?
How have apps and social media changed the way we share photos? Are they positive and/or negative changes? Explain.
Include a statement from a current photographer or critic to support your points.

Problem solving

Instructions.
• Use R Markdown to create a PDF document with the two tasks.
• As always, any plots should have appropriate axis and overall labels.
1. There is a data set in R called mtcars.
(a) Is mtcars a data frame or a matrix? If it is not a data frame, make it one using data.frame().
(b) Access the help file on mtcars and summarize the brief descriiption of the data set.
(c) Of the variables in mtcars all are of class numeric. That said, are there any that it would make sense to call categorical? Which ones and why?
2. Create a scatterplot of the relationship between horsepower (horizontal axis) and miles per gallon (vertical axis). Add a linear regression line to the plot and describe the relationship in words in context. Do this in both base R and ggplot2.
(a) Make a conditional violin plot with superimposed boxplots in ggplot2 of miles per gallon conditional on transition type (automatic or not). Interpret the plot in context.
(b) Use factor() to add factor versions of the variables gear and cyl. Create dodged and stacked bar charts in ggplot2. For your stacked bar charts, look up how to normalize the bars so that they equal 100% and do that. Interpret the results in context.
(c) Use mtcars data to create a scatterplot that pulls in multivariate information like we did with the state abbreviations and regions in class. Surprise me.

Discussion Question/Answer 2

Think about a particular industry such as baked goods and donut sales.
– Under what conditions would might the manager use correlation and/or regression analysis?
– Include comments on the type of data needed and a work-related suggestion for their use.

Implementing VPN

This is project that needs to be completed in parts. Today I only need Week 1 – Week 4 completed by the deadline: 10:15 PM – September 11. Week 4 – Week 8 will be completed at a later time and would like to have the same writer complete.
Review the two attached documents for instructions. The word document provides the assignments broken down by weeks that need to be completed for this project. The PDF provides objectives and requirements required for this project.

Cryptography and Technical IS Security

Consider the following application areas for blockchains:
1. Passports
2. Birth certificates
3. Land/property registry
Select ONE of the above for your initial DB post. Discuss how blockchains can help ensure the security of operations for the application domain you’ve selected. What are the benefits and costs associated with implementing blockchains for this application? What non-obvious issues need to be considered?
Please use references and ideas from the attachment that I have added. If you need to cite anything, then the actual reference for this attachment is as follows:

What do you think is (are) the greatest threat(s) to our privacy?

The attached documents contain instructions on how to write a paper. I also attached the textbook material that needs to be used.
– Chapter 2 of “A Gift of Fire: Social, Legal, and Ethical Issues for Computing Technology”
– Chapter 1 of “The Ethical Algorithm: The Science of Socially Aware Algorithm Design”

Writer’s Choice

Directions
For this activity, you will write a short paper introducing a specific technology that influenced a social, cultural, or global event of your choice. You may use the topic that you worked with in the previous activity or choose a new topic now that you have reflected further. Review the module resources and the instructor feedback you received on the previous activity. Then, if needed, visit the IDS 403 Library Guide for guidance on how to select and narrow a topic. If you are selecting a new topic, do some preliminary research to make sure you can address the required elements of your project. Please remember that you will not be able to change your topic after the end of this module.
You should begin to gather the sources you will integrate into your project, which will include two resources from the Module Resources sections of this course and two resources that you find through your own research using the Shapiro Library. It may be beneficial to identify more than the number of sources required for the project so you can eventually choose the most useful and credible. You are not required to answer each question below the rubric criteria, but you may use them to better understand the criteria and guide your thinking and writing.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Integrate reliable evidence from varied sources throughout your paper to support your analysis.
It is important to draw from a diverse pool of perspectives from varied sources to support the analysis. This is different from the Citations and Attributions rubric criterion.
Reliable evidence from varied sources should be interwoven throughout the paper itself, while citing and attributing sources will be represented as APA in-text citations and a reference list at the end of your work.
You will be evaluated on both criteria.
Describe a social, cultural, or global event where a technology plays a significant role. Include information such as how the event originated and what it is about.
What main points should you include about your event? How did your event start? What other details are needed to ensure a thorough descriiption?
Describe the technology significant to this event. Include information such as what the technology does and how it might help influence change.
Be sure to include any unexpected ways that the technology influenced the event.
Assess the societal or cultural influences of the technology involved in the event.
What stories clearly illustrate how the technology has impacted the lives and experiences of people involved in the social, cultural, or global event?
Explain your choice of one general education interdisciplinary lens for analyzing the technology and its role in the event.
What made you choose one lens over the others? Was it an easy decision? Why or why not?
Construct a thesis statement that combines your event, the technology, the societal or cultural influences, and choice of general education interdisciplinary lens.
Your thesis statement should clearly and concisely state the relationships between your event, technology, societal or cultural differences, and lens. It acts as a hypothesis proposing how these elements will work together during your critical analysis.
