  1. Evidence of Decreasing Internet Entropy: The Lack of Redundancy in DNS Resolution by Major Websites and Services

    Bates, Samantha L; Bowers, John; Greenstein, Shane M; Weinstock, Jordi Portell; Zittrain, Jonathan L.
    This paper analyzes the extent to which the Internet’s global domain name resolution (DNS) system has preserved its distributed resilience given the rise of cloud-based hosting and infrastructure. We explore trends in the concentration of the DNS space since at least 2011. In addition, we examine changes in domains’ tendency to “diversify” their pool of nameservers – how frequently domains employ DNS management services from multiple providers rather than just one provider – a comparatively costless and therefore puzzlingly rare decision that could supply redundancy and resilience in the event of an attack or service outage affecting one provider.

  10. Brexit and the Trouble with an Uncodified Constitution: R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union

    Mackie, Sarah Elizabeth
    On June 23, 2016, the United Kingdom voted, unexpectedly, to leave the European Union. That such a decision would have constitutional implications was not surprising, but the vote also caused an unforeseen constitutional crisis: who has the power to begin the process of leaving the European Union? While the government believed that it could exercise its Crown prerogative to conduct foreign affairs, others demanded that Parliament must authorize the decision to leave. The United Kingdom’s constitution, relying mostly on precedent and custom, seemed to provide no answer. The decision was left to the courts and there ensued many months of...

    The recent advent of methods for high-throughput single-cell molecular profiling has catalyzed a growing sense in the scientific community that the time is ripe to complete the 150-year-old effort to identify all cell types in the human body. The Human Cell Atlas Project is an international collaborative effort that aims to define all human cell types in terms of distinctive molecular profiles (such as gene expression profiles) and to connect this information with classical cellular descriptions (such as location and morphology). An open comprehensive reference map of the molecular state of cells in healthy human tissues would propel the systematic...

  12. Interventions over Predictions: Reframing the Ethical Debate for Actuarial Risk Assessment

    Zittrain, Jonathan L.; Barabas, Chelsea; Dinakar, Karthik; Ito, Joichi; Virza, Madars
    Actuarial risk assessments might be unduly perceived as a neutral way to counteract implicit bias and increase the fairness of decisions made at almost every juncture of the criminal justice system, from pretrial release to sentencing, parole and probation. In recent times these assessments have come under increased scrutiny, as critics claim that the statistical techniques underlying them might reproduce existing patterns of discrimination and historical biases that are reflected in the data.Much of this debate is centered around competing notions of fairness and predictive accuracy, resting on the contested use of variables that act as “proxies” for characteristics legally...

  15. Implementing International Criminal Court-Ordered Collective Reparations: Unpacking Present Debates

    Brodney, Marissa R
    A debate at the International Criminal Court (ICC) between the Trial Chamber and Trust Fund for Victims (Trust Fund) regarding reparations in the case against Thomas Lubanga Dyilo has stalled aspects of the reparations process and threatens to prevent some prospective beneficiaries from receiving reparations at all. Recently, the Trial Chamber ordered the Trust Fund to determine eligibility of individual beneficiaries as a prerequisite to determining Lubanga’s monetary liability for collective reparation awards. It also ordered the Trust Fund to secure consent of victims to disclose their identities to Lubanga as a precondition to obtaining reparations. The Trust Fund has...

  16. Who will vote quadratically? Voter turnout and votes cast under quadratic voting

    Kaplow, Louis; Kominers, Scott Duke
    Who will vote quadratically in large-N elections under quadratic voting (QV)? First, who will vote? Although the core QV literature assumes that everyone votes, turnout is endogenous. Drawing on other work, we consider the representativeness of endogenously determined turnout under QV. Second, who will vote quadratically? Conditional on turning out, we examine reasons that, in large-N elections, the number of votes that an individual casts may deviate substantially from that under pure, rational QV equilibrium play. Because turnout itself is driven by other factors, the same determinants may influence how voters who do turn out choose the quantity of votes...

  19. The Ghost of the Declaration Present the Legal Force of the Declaration of the Independence Regarding Acts of Congress

    Michelman, Frank Isaac
    I distinguish three ways by which references to the Declaration of Independence might enter into American legal argument. In primary-legal mode, the Declaration ranks as supreme law beside or above the Constitution, setting mandates as the Constitution does for other purported exercises of legal authority, from Acts of Congress on down. In interpretive-contextual mode, the Declaration provides informative historical context for determinations of the meanings of the Constitution and other laws. In creedal mode, the Declaration serves as a canonical marker for axiomatic principles of good or right government. Creedal uses of the Declaration are common and benign. Interpretive-contextual uses...
