In this chapter, @SvenNyholm relates the new area of the ethics of human–#robot interaction to traditional ethical theories such as #utilitarianism, Kantian #ethics, and virtue ethics. #AIEthics

In this chapter, Emily Sullivan and Mark Alfano (@moral_psych) develop a normative epistemic framework for sharing information online. They argue recent technological developments call for a rethinking of the norms of testimony. #epistemology

With ethical concerns regarding Henry’s co-authored mass infection study we need to look at Henry’s other studies. In 2021 Canada’s chief science advisor had a stark warning about BC extending intervals between vaccine doses…1/ #BCPoli #BCStudies #Ethics cbc.ca/news/politics/…
Unbeknownst to BCers desperately trying to get boosters at recommended intervals, Henry was conducting several studies using the population as a risky experiment given BC’s rampant transmissions, inadequate mitigation large number of single dosed at risk people 2/ #BCPoli #Study
“If provinces want to find out if the interval between the first and second doses can be extended to 16 weeks…(they( should conduct proper clinical trials by registering participants & explaining to them the possible advantages & disadvantages of taking part”

Way overdue #Oregon media attention, on the grave, *multi-decade* paucity of #Hospital beds & the #Licensed #HealthCareProfessionals to staff them, was provided by @LaurelPorter on "Straight Talk" Saturday ["Oregon hospitals in crisis: player.fm/series/series-… #orpol]. Sadly,....

@EthicalHourNews @BrendaChoi19 I'm other words, #Mattel corporation will, after 8 yrs, sell, as a successful, expdnding business, even more items, but each wrapped in 75% current environmentally catastrophic fossil-fuel-derived plastics. In short, @Mattel MIGHT do a little less wanton harm

#Ethics
@EthicalHourNews @BrendaChoi19 @Mattel This is how corporations trashing ecosystems, polluting & clogging, for millennia, oceans, soils, our bodies, with plastics, microplastics, toxic plastic breakdown products, cunningly deploy otherwise ethical organizations, institutions to do their marketing.
#CorporatePillaging
@EthicalHourNews @BrendaChoi19 @Mattel Let's not admire and praise ruthless, greedy, selfish companies, run by members of the #BillionaireClass, devastating environments, societies, whenever they issue, for PR purposes, proclamations of "green" proposals, not to stop, but slightly reduce the immense damage they do.

In the last day or so, a video showing Russian soldiers conducting a hideous and repulsive act against a defenceless Ukrainian prisoner of war has circulated. While I will not amplify this, I wanted to provide some thoughts. 1/15 🧵 Image
2/ First, from a purely human level, I am sickened that one human will do this to another. It is a depraved and inhuman act - there is nothing that justifies it.
3/ Second, as a soldier, it breaks my heart to see a fellow soldier - now a non-combatant - being treated in such a way. No soldier deserves such disgusting treatment.

🔥 I predicted this 🔥 Guess WHO is waking up?! @jordanbpeterson Several 'Clients' of other therapists are now messaging me personally saying they "used to believe in gender stuff", telling me they are very unhappy with their therapists because they are finding out the truth
they have been lied to! Clients MUST speak up Can you believe that 'clients' are now telling their therapists off, firing them, confronting them, asking them questions This is beyond disturbing & beyond ethical. Clients MUST speak up because woke therapists NEED to be called out
Clients are now contacting me telling me that they are discovering they have been lied all this time, they are distressed to find out they have been lied to by their therapists @AbigailShrier to find out that what they have been taught is an ideology & NOT factual @LisaLittman1

This week an #AI model was released on @huggingface that produces harmful + discriminatory text and has already posted over 30k vile comments online (says it's author).

@huggingface as the model custodian (an interesting new concept) should implement an #ethics review process to determine the harm hosted models may cause, and gate harmful models behind approval/usage agreements.

Medical research has functional models ie for data sharing.

2/7 ImageImage
Open science and software are wonderful principles but must be balanced against potential harm. Medical research has a strong ethics culture bc we have an awful history of causing harm to people, usually from disempowered groups.

See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_e… for examples.

“The post-truth era
In Cairn’s Dossiers” (2018)

A Danger for Our Democracies
Paul Valadier

#pandemic_psychology #post_truth #ethics The Jesuit Paul Valadier argues in the journal Études that
“The Jesuit Paul Valadier argues in the journal Études that the question of whether we have really entered the era of “post-truth” is still open. But “[e]ven if the ‘post-truth era’ is just a slogan, it certainly reveals a danger for democracy.”
Certainly, there is nothing new about the refusal of the truth—we could think, for instance, of the expression “maintaining order,” which was used to hide the war in Algeria, of the lies President Mitterrand told about his health, or of the myth…

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

I'll be adding short important points which would hopefully help in remembering certain concepts during #PLAB preparation, to this thread🧵every now and then as I take them out from my scattered notes. Feel free to comment your tips and tricks which would help others, as well 👇
Please don't take any of these as medical advice 😂🙏. Real life stuff is much more nuanced. These are just clinchers for the sake of the exam.

The Aus Senate this Weds will vote on so-called 'three-parent #babies'. These would be #donorconceived babies, genetically the child of 3 people not 2, made by an unregulated, for-profit industry, where there are serious questions about the future for the resulting child. A 🧵
Three-parent babies are made from #mitochondrialDNA donation. For eg: you fertilise a would-be mother's egg, and a donor egg. You suck the middle (the pronucleus) out of both. You put the would-be mother's pronucleus in the 'shell' of the donor egg. You gestate the embryo.
This is to avoid a child inheriting mitochondrial disease from the mother. What it means is: the child inherits DNA from 3 people - bio father, the would-be mother, and the donor. This *is inheritable*. If it's a girl baby, DNA from THREE people will be passed on to her children.

I feel a need to apologize on behalf of #psychology
The organisations & #psychologists have burned their profession down. Many still champion this dying spiralling wokeism, in spite of contrary evidence, for their own selfish need for relevance. This damage is likely irreparable
This toxic wokeism has infected all #Psychology Organizations. The Australian #Psychological @AustPsych Society’s ex president Bob Montgomery is a convicted sex offender in jail & the APS couldn’t even genuinely apologize 👉🏻 abc.net.au/news/2020-06-0…
Then we have the Australian Psychological Society’s one way affirmation medicalisation approach of transgendering children/teens and denial of social contagion as one factor in the 4000% increase & the silencing/harassment of psychologists who disagree 👉🏻 psychology.org.au/about-us/news-…

#Suicide by Clinic-Referred #Transgender #Adolescents in the United Kingdom. Great piece here urging us to reflect upon & think about, if evidence based #science is still your thing. Biggs (2022) conclusion asks us to question #medical responsibility. researchgate.net/publication/35…
How do we know if we are acting responsibly when we are offering ‘information’? What information are we offering? What if that information is on risk for #selfharm & #suicide? As a part of our daily #dutyofcare part of the #safeguarding process?
What about if that information is relied upon when we obtain parental consent for intervention with #children & #adolescents? What if that information isn’t true, is inaccurate, exaggerated, inflated, distorted? #science

Notes from my book: Receiving many messages, DM’s & emails over ‘safeguarding’. I have worked in this industry for 30 years. Safeguarding chapter: #MentalHeath professionals are human & make mistakes, because they are human. They are first & fore-mostly trained in #safeguarding
Their ethos is to ‘Do No Harm’. Most people don’t understand what this means. #Therapists & mental health professionals disagree on many issues. They are divided on what safeguarding means to them #Childsafety & #childprotection have always been fraught by #childsafety challenges
In 2015, I began raising #safeguarding concerns with My regulatory board & the #psychology organisations. These were serious concerns. Over those years, I was ignored, brushed off, #silenced or told it wasn’t a problem. The Australian Senate held an #inquiry into our regulatory
