: Give you the opportunity to research and reflect upon the impact of computing on society.
Instructions: Global Impact is the last and arguably most important of the 7 Big Ideas of Computer Science. In this assignment, you will identify and summarize 2 news articles that describe how computing has had an impact on society. One of the news articles should be mainly positive, the other mainly negative.
The news articles should not be about the technology per se (e.g., a faster microprocessor, or some cool gizmo), but the impact that computing has had on people, on society. For example, a news article on how Google Translate is facilitating tourism, or how machine learning is making it possible to detect cancers earlier, would be fine; but an article reviewing the latest iPhone would not.
The articles should be from reliable news sources, no more than 6 months old. A good way to start is by skimming through the front (web)pages of popular media outlets, e.g., New York Times, WSJ, NPR, Toronto Globe and Mail, Wired, The Economist, BBC, Medium, etc.

an even shorter paragraph (100 words, max) indicating your response to the article
