Abstract: Empirical science is changing – quickly. Where we once learned about the world by studying the world, we now often analyze representations of the world in very large data bases. This is posing interesting, important and difficult opportunities for scientific ethics, including the Responsible Conduct of Research. From ChatGPT as an “author” to the problem of reproducibility or replication of digital experiments, the job of responsible scientists has never been more challenging.
