We note that the ACM and the IEEE both have ethics guidelines that are over 20 years old, before the popularization of the internet and challenges that come with big data research. If so, what would it address? In general, we note that the most influential ethics codes are hard-won responses to major disruptions, especially medical and behavioral research scandals.
Such disruptions re-open questions of responsibility, trust and institutional legitimacy, and thus call for codification of new social and political arrangements.
In the midth Century there was a proliferation of important ethics codes that still guide professional behavior and research activities, even for organizations that do not conduct research. Prior to this time, there were relatively few professional ethics codes; today they are widespread and seem nearly obligatory.
In the s researchers struggled to respond to the scientific and medical atrocities of the Nazi regime. The major social disruptions of the s in the US and Western Europe also coincided with continued research scandals in the U.
Particularly in the US, the public was substantially less trusting of inherited institutional authority and the subsequent ethics codes particularly the Belmont Report and the formation of IRBs responded to a need for routinized skepticism and critical assessment Cassell, ; Jasanoff, There are several principles that can be found at the core of contemporary ethics codes across many domains: For example, ethical reforms that followed the distribution of dangerous and untrustworthy medicine e.
The formalized protocols for clinical trials are a hybrid of ethical policies and standards of evidence for efficaciousness and safety of proposed drugs. Similarly, in journalism ethics codes we can often find claims about journalistic virtue twinned with claims about the proper way of handling evidence and truth-telling.
Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear. Notably many of the most pressing ethical issues in biomedicine today are related to the rise of data-intensive medicine, such as the return of results to study participants Fullerton et al.
In each of these cases, data-intensive research is pushing the limits of established ethics conventions, such as long-standing informed consent practices. As big data techniques allow biomedicine to draw new connections between previously disparate databases, collections and phenomena, it is reasonable to ask whether ethical conundrums may proliferate in ways that current ethics codes and practices cannot easily accommodate.
Rather, the institutionalized practices, policies and codes have become an object of concern and experimentation in light of big data techniques. Ethics codes in computing have followed a somewhat different trajectory. Rather than reacting to scandals, major policies in computing ethics have presaged many of the issues that are now experienced as more urgent in the context of big data.
Yet despite this strong start, the major computing societies now have ethics codes that are two decades old, dating from the start of the internet age Anderson et al.
Even as early as the s, critics were noting that the major ethics codes of computing societies, such as the ACM, IEEE, and DPMA now AITP were out of date in terms of their ability to address the quickly shifting norms and technical capacity of the Internet and data-intensive society, particularly because of the advice offered by the codes is largely generic Martin and Martin, ; Oz, Many of the principles expressed by these codes, such as honesty and accuracy, apply to ethical professionals broadly.
However, there is no specific reference to or guidance about the pressing challenges of the profession, such as informed consent, how to manage potential harms, the role of third parties accessing data, and the threats to privacy.
Journalism ethics codes differ from biomedicine and computing by virtue of the emphasis placed on individual character and independent action. Journalism and modern science co-evolved as practices of objective truth-telling Ward, Bioethics, History of Bioethics, Catholic Bioethics Problems of legal regulation of bioethics in Russian Federation (historic and comparative approach) In this paper a general understanding of the current situation concerning bioethics legal regulation in the Russian Federation is outlined.
Observing Bioethics examines the history of bioethics as a discipline related not only to modern biology, medicine, and biotechnology, but also to the core values and beliefs of American society and its courts, legislatures, and media.
