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.

Short Bio: Kenneth W. Goodman, PhD, FACMI, FACE, is founder and director of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Institute for Bioethics and Health Policy and director of the university’s Ethics Programs. Dr. Goodman’s research has emphasized issues in health information technology and in epidemiology and public health. His most recent book, Ethics, Medicine, and Information Technology: Intelligent Machines and the Transformation of Health Care (Cambridge University Press 2016) identifies and analyzes a number of issues in biomedical informatics.
