Job interviews for programmers now often come with days of unpaid homework
Completing days of free work as a requirement for applying to a job is a burden for anyone, but it may also deepen biases against already underrepresented groups in tech.

Tech Companies Are Getting Free Work Out of Job Applicants
The tech industry is built on free work. For every CEO like Mark Zuckerberg, who has said he clocks a relatively modest 50 or 60 hours at the office every week, there are hordes of workers putting in endless unpaid overtime. That’s called “crunch,” and it’s often viewed as a routine part of doing business. And while that problem is well-documented, less frequently discussed is the free labor many people have to complete to land a job in the first place.

Research: NIH peer review percentile scores are poorly predictive of grant productivity | eLife
Peer review is widely used to assess grant applications so that the highest ranked applications can be funded. A number of studies have questioned the ability of peer review panels to predict the productivity of applications, but a recent analysis of grants funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US found that the percentile scores awarded by peer review panels correlated with productivity as measured by citations of grant-supported publications. Here, based on a re-analysis of these data for the 102,740 funded grants with percentile scores of 20 or better, we report that these percentile scores are a poor discriminator of productivity. This underscores the limitations of peer review as a means of assessing grant applications in an era when typical success rates are often as low as about 10%.

Can Tech Get Better at Confronting Ethical Challenges? | Stanford eCorner
The trolley problem is an especially dramatic example of a challenge that exists across the technology sector: innovation is happening so rapidly that it’s flying past serious ethical questions without fully addressing them, or recognizing them as ethical questions at all. Russian propaganda designed to undermine the US presidential election flourished unchecked on Facebook and Twitter. Waze users are reshaping traffic flow in communities across the US, dramatically altering the character of once-quiet neighborhoods.
