Referencing
Note that Wikipedia (and equivalent websites) are not acceptable as references in this unit. Please use the Harvard referencing system, or similar widely accepted system such as APA, but varied for quoted text – see Assignment Submission Instruction 3 later in this document.
Assignment extensions
Assignments are due on the dates specified above. An additional 3 days are available to all students where needed to confirm their submissions meet the required authenticity tests. There is no need to apply for extensions of 3 days or less. Extensions for longer than 3 days are made using the standard Southern Cross University application for ‘Special Consideration – Extension of Assessment’ to be submitted via the Special Consideration eForm found in My Enrolment.
Assignment authenticity tests
Your assignment is considered successfully submitted when you pass the first two of the following three assignment authenticity tests. The third test is implemented by marking staff, during the marking process, and no feedback is provided unless there is an irregularity with your submission.
AUTHENTICITY TEST 1
Turnitin text match of less than 10%.
The Turnitin Originality Report must show a text match of less than 10%. Note that any text match sourced to the Assignment Cover Sheet or Bibliography is excluded when calculating your text match % for the purposes of this authenticity test.
If your text match is 10% or more, rewrite your assignment carefully following the Assignment submission instructions (see below). Resubmit your assignment and confirm your revised text match is below 10%.
AUTHENTICITY TEST 2
Word document edit time and date document created.
Each submitted assignment is to be completed from start to finish entirely on one word document; that is do not change documents once you begin writing this assignment. This will ensure your document properties track the total time spent preparing and editing your assignment. The editing time and date started are required information when you make your final submission.
In your word document –
i) Click on FILE
ii) view document Properties and record the Total Editing Time
iii) view Related Dates and record the date the document was Created.
The Total Editing Time must be more than 1 hour.
AUTHENTICITY TEST 3
Writing style comparison
Marking staff perform comparisons of writing style and standard with your previously submitted assessments to confirm consistency, authenticity and originality.
Assignment Cover Sheet
Do NOT attach the standard SCU assignment cover sheet. Prepare your own front page with only the following information –
Name
Student number
Assignment number
Turnitin text match %
Total document edit time
Date document created
Assignment 1 and 2 submission instructions
Assignments 1 and 2 can only be submitted using Turnitin via the Assessment function on the MySCU site for this unit. For more information on Turnitin, see http://study.scu.edu.au/turnitin/
Please follow these instructions for successful submission of Assignments 1 & 2.
1. Your assignments must be submitted as Word documents.
2. Do NOT attach an SCU assignment cover sheet.
3. All text that you copy from other sources must be quoted like this –
“…quoted text here” (author, year, page number).
Note that the “double quotation marks” are essential to signal to Turnitin that you are acknowledging this text is taken directly from another author’s work; but also note that good assignment writing requires limited use of directly quoted text.
It is recommended you follow this method for quoting text regardless of the referencing convention you are following.
4. Do NOT rewrite the questions in your assignment. Answer each question under a sub heading consisting of only the question number or letter.
5. Provide a list of references at the end of your assignment on a new page under the subheading Bibliography.
6. A required objective of this unit is that you learn how to use Turnitin to improve your referencing and academic writing to the required academic standard. Note that the first Turnitin Originality Report is generated within 5 minutes, however subsequent reports take 24 hours to produce.
7. It is your responsibility to review the Turnitin Originality Report and remove text matches so that your assignment conforms to the required academic writing standard by the due date.
You remove text matches by strictly following the instructions above (especially instruction 3); and where required, paraphrasing and/or restating text matches in your own original words.
You will find useful resources on referencing, paraphrasing and quoting here http://scu.edu.au/teachinglearning/index.php/6 .
8. Do NOT recycle an assignment used previously in this or any other unit.

“How can we design systems that don’t leave people behind”
Photo Source: https://www.smh.com.au/business/banking-and-finance/bank-jobs-upheaval-just-the-beginning-20171102gzdpep.htm
You are the Human Resources (HR) manager for a large organisation that employs over 1500 people.
The board of the organisation has recently decided to investigate the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) to support a number of human resource management (HRM) processes. The board has identified that the existing semi-automated payroll system, whilst adequate, could be improved by the introduction of technology. The board would also like to examine other areas of HRM processes that could benefit from AI, including answering employee questions on various HR topics such as employee benefits; replacing a range of mundane administrative tasks (for example, leave arrangements) and supporting recruitment and selection activities.
You have been asked to conduct research into the use of AI in HRM, and provide a briefing paper to the next
Board meeting to assist them in their decision-making regarding the introduction of AI. In particular, the Board is interested in the benefits and risks to the organisation on the introduction of AI. They also are interested in the implications for the workforce if such technology were to be adopted.
You keep up-to-date with current HR issues through various media, and have noted a number of large national organisations such as the National Australia Bank are moving to automation. A recent Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) website article set out some of the implications of the use of AI in HRM: https://www.shrm.org/resourcesandtools/legal-and-compliance/employment-law/pages/how-canartificial-intelligence-work-for-hr.aspx
In addition, you have just read an article on the ethical implications of the adoption of AI (see attached). From what you have read to date, you understand that the introduction and use of AI is a complex issue. You are mindful that you need to provide the Board with a report that provides an informed consideration of their identified issues.
YOUR TASK
Consider the benefits and risks to the organisation on the introduction of AI in its HRM processes. Your consideration should include implications for the workforce if such technology were to be adopted. From your research, identify and discuss three key issues that address the Board’s request for information.
Present your findings in the form of a briefing paper, structured according to an essay format. The briefing should comprise an introduction and the ‘scoping’ of the problem. It should then provide substantive content that reflects depth and breadth of research as well as practical understanding of the problem, and critical analysis of the issues in presenting solutions to the problems. A conclusion should draw together the identified issues, analysis and solutions.

‘We have to design for the human in mind’: putting ethics into AI
Medical students are trained with the famous Hippocratic Oath in mind – first, do no harm.
Kriti Sharma, artificial intelligence technologist and inventor, would like her industry to adopt a similar oath – to first, -do no evil-. Sharma, vice-president of bots and AI at accounting software company Sage, is a vocal advocate for ethics in AI – and for the human experience to be at the centre of technology design.
-When we build AI systems we have to design for the human in mind from the beginning – how the human will feel in the equation,- she says.
Kriti Sharma, vice-president of bots and AI at accounting software company Sage, is a vocal advocate for ethics in AI.
London-based Sharma, who will speak in Sydney this week at the World Congress of Accountants, created the world’s first personal chatbot for business finance – a gender neutral bot called Pegg.
She was also behind Sage’s Ethics of Code, a series of statements that includes that -AI should reflect the diversity of the users it serves-, -that AI must be held to account along with its users-, and that -technology should not be allowed to become too clever to be accountable-. -It’s absolutely very important to be transparent about technology – and also be open about how good it is,- Sharma says. -Quite often [this] could be exaggerated.-
The AI world is awash with tricky ethical issues – many of which are only starting to be considered. For example, Sharma flags concerns that AI is adopting prejudices and negative stereotypes from its creators – which is why, she says, the industry needs a more diverse talent pool.
She is critical of technology that tries to blur or conceal whether a user is dealing with a fellow human or a bot, a practice that she says risks undermining privacy of users and trust in AI. Then there’s the case of selfdriving cars – designed, she says, without first thinking about the experience of the humans who would actually be sitting in them.
Sharma applauds the UK’s recent establishment of a Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, to consider the ethical issues thrown by AI and automation. Governments and policy makers have a -huge role- in setting standards for the industry, and in helping ensure the workforce has the skills needed for the so-called fourth industrial revolution, she says.
Retraining crucial
A year ago, National Australia Bank announced it would cut 6000 jobs over the next three years, partly because automation would be replacing some of the work done by people. At the same time, it flagged plans to hire 2000 more people with technology skills. It was the most visible example so far of the massive change coming to the Australian workplace, with a 2015 study from the Office of the Chief Economist finding that 44 per cent of Australian jobs are highly susceptible to automation.
There have been calls for government subsidies for retraining of workers who lose their jobs to automation, and an industry-wide plan for finance sector workers, whose union has warned that they may be -left behind- by the big changes to come.
Sharma is concerned AI’s benefits may have an unequal impact on society.
She is often asked by companies to talk about -who are the people we need to hire in the future-. But she says businesses need to look more at re-skilling existing staff.
-For us to be able to embrace this we need to invest in re-skilling the existing workforce, as well as the younger generations who are in the education system,- she says. -[There is a] huge opportunity to re-skill existing employees.-

Rich Picture – you are to create a Rich Picture of the problem you identified (Follow the next page structure. Problem is mentioned in the introduction). Rich picture can be hand drawn and should provide an consise overview of the complex system under review.

1000 words (Structure which you need to write this report is given in the next page and you must follow it)
To successfully complete Assessment you will write a comprehensive report that helps resolve the problem you introduced. There are two (2) sections to Assessment.
1) Rich Picture – you are to create a Rich Picture of the problem you identified (Follow the next page structure. Problem is mentioned in the introduction). Rich picture can be hand drawn and should provide an consise overview of the complex system under review.
2) Root Definition report using CATWOE – A Root Definition report is a structured analysis and description of the system being investigated. A Root Definition report explains the what, how and why. A CATWOE analysis can help in the development of a thorough Root Definition Report. CATWOE is a mnemonic that identifys all stakeholders in the system being analysed. CATWOE stands for
C- Customers/clients
A – Actors
T – Transformation Process
W- Weltanschauung / Worldview
O – Owners
E- Environment
To successfully complete this Assessment, both sections must be completed. Your final report
must include
• Rich Picture
• Root Definition Report using CATWOE.
• And, based on these two tools, you need to recommend a minimum of two (2) optimal solutions to overcome the problem. (see the 2 solutions that are given in the next page recommendation part)
