#1. An Ethical Framework for a Good AI Society: Opportunities, Risks, Principles, and Recommendations
Luciano Floridi, Josh Cowls, Monica Beltrametti, Raja Chatila, Patrice Chazerand, Virginia Dignum, Christoph Luetge, Robert Madelin, Ugo Pagallo, Francesca Rossi
This article reports the findings of AI4People, a year-long initiative designed to lay the foundations for a “Good AI Society”. We introduce the core opportunities and risks of AI for society; present a synthesis of five ethical principles that should undergird its development and adoption; and offer 20 concrete recommendations – to assess, to develop, to incentivise, and to support good AI – which in some cases may be undertaken directly by national or supranational policy makers, while in others may be led by other stakeholders. If adopted, these recommendations would serve as a firm foundation for the establishment of a Good AI Society.

#2. Measuring Modernist Novelty
Cultural Analytics, Laura McGrath, Devin Higgins, Arend Hintze
One may as well begin with two overly-cited quotations about novelty. “On or about December, 1910, human character changed.” And, more predictably: “Make It New!” at these two statements about change and innovation have been so frequently cited reveals a contradiction in modernist studies: novelty is commonplace, both for modernist writers and for literary critics. Novelty has become so firmly fixed as a central framing narrative for literary modernism that the two terms—“novelty”, “modernism”—are often treated as synonymous. The period (roughly, 1890-1945) has been defined by its capacities for rupture and the rejection of tradition: a “paradigmatic shift, a major revolt;” ” a ruthless break with any or all preceding historical conditions [...] characterized by a never-ending process of internal ruptures and fragmentations within itself;” “a powerful vortex of historical conditions that coalesce to produce sharp ruptures from the past [...] shattering change.” These revolts, breaks, and ruptures coalesced into the de definitive...

#3. Gender Gap in Entrepreneurship
Jorge Guzman, Aleksandra (Olenka) Kacperczyk
Using data on the entire population of businesses registered in the states of California and Massachusetts between 1995 and 2011, we decompose the well-established gender gap in entrepreneurship. We show that female-led ventures are 63 percentage points less likely than male-led ventures to obtain external funding (i.e., venture capital). The most significant portion of the gap (65 percent) stems from gender differences in initial startup orientation, with women being less likely to found ventures that signal growth potential to external investors. However, the residual gap is as much as 35 percent and much of this disparity likely reflects investors’ gendered preferences. Consistent with theories of statistical discrimination, the residual gap diminishes significantly when stronger signals of growth are available to investors for comparable female- and male-led ventures or when focal investors appear to be more sophisticated. Finally, conditional on the reception of external funds (i.e., venture capital), women and men are...

#4. The art of not being legible: Invented writing systems as technologies of resistance in mainland Southeast Asia
Piers Kelly
James C Scott argued that the traditional non-literacy of highland minorities in mainland Southeast Asia may belong to a wider pattern of state evasion whereby lowland practices, including literacy, are strategically rejected. This position ignores the moral and material value attributed to literacy in upland folklore, as well as the many radical messianic movements that purported to bring writing back to the highlands. I review nine such cases of recuperated literacy among Southeast Asian minorities, all of which were created in circumstances of violent conflict with lowland states. Leaders of these movements recognised literacy as an important vehicle of state power but their appropriation of writing was limited to very specific purposes and domains. In short, the new literacy practices did not mirror its ordinary bureaucratic uses in lowland states. Instead, writing became a symbolic instrument for building state-like institutions of resistance.

#7. Writing in the Margins: Mainstream News Media Representations of Transgenderism
Thomas J Billard
This study examines representations of transgender individuals and identity in mainstream American newspapers in an effort to understand the extent to which the transgender community is legitimized or delegitimized by news media. To do so, 200 articles from 13 of the 25 most circulated daily newspapers in the United States were coded for the presence or absence of Legitimacy Indicators. The study finds that mainstream newspaper coverage of the transgender community is extremely limited. What coverage existed, however, contains a significant amount of delegitimizing language, which it is argued will detrimentally impact both the projected legitimacy of transgender claims in the political arena and public perceptions of the transgender community.

#8. Stable Random Projection: Lightweight, General-Purpose Dimensionality Reduction for Digitized Libraries
Cultural Analytics, Benjamin Schmidt
Digital libraries today distribute their contents in a way that limits the sort of work that can be done with them. Modern libraries are so large-often containing millions of books or articles-that the technical resources needed to work with them can be immense. Beginning researchers and students often cannot practically obtain more than a few thousand books at a time. Advanced researchers must use (often incomplete) metadata to decide which books are of interest for their projects; and libraries themselves lack ways for make their full-text holdings easily discoverable by researchers or integrated with other collections.

#9. Cutting the Face: Kinship, State and Social Media Conflict in Networked Jordan
Geoffrey Fitzgibbon Hughes
The local uptake of new media in the Middle East is shaped by deep histories of imperialism, state building, resistance and accommodation. In contemporary Jordan, social media is simultaneously encouraging identifcation with tribes and undermining their gerontocratic power structures. Senior men stress their own importance as guarantors (‘faces’), who restore order following conflicts, promising to pay their rivals a large surety if their kin break the truce. Yet, ‘cutting the face’ (breaking truces) remains an alternative, one often facilitated by new technologies that allow people to challenge pre-existing structures of communication and authority. However, the experiences of journalists and other social media mavens suggest that the liberatory promise of the new technology may not be enough to prevent its reintegration into older patterns of social control.

#10. POLITICAL ABSTENTION IN THE INDIAN MIDDLE CLASS, THE RISE OF POPULISM AND THE REINFORCEMENT OF RENT
Arkaprabha Pal
The Indian middle class witnessed a reconfiguration in its composition after the failure of the secular nationalists in their method of development and redistribution of resources. This reconfiguration used cultural and religious fundamentalism in the form of Hindutva as its instrument to assert their right to access the resources and strive towards a non-State centric redistribution. However, this new middle class, which was mainly conversing in the vernacular and had its base in the smaller urban areas, was also faced with the assertion of the lower class identarian groups. In such a situation, a large section of the urban Indian middle class shied away from taking part in the electoral process citing moral crises of the corrupt secular English speaking elite on one hand and the lowly criminal nature of the lower class political assertion on the other. Taking hints from the works of Christophe Jaffrelot, I would try to argue in this paper, that non-participation of a major section of the urban middle class was a manifestation of...
