Sample text

For research purposes selection of an area and a purpose is of the essence in order to evaluate results and contextualize the used approach. With this in mind, the disparity between ideal and real environments in the medical arena creates a complex set of scenarios, which are pressing and interesting to analyze from an ethical point of view. Therefore, this article will address moral reasoning in medicine, and apply it in clinical context. 2 Medical Ethics Modeling – Analysis and Applications Clinical ethics is an arena of public interest, where themes such as end of life, abortion and refusal or futility of treatment, among others, are constantly discussed as specific dilemmas occur or opinions and believes change.

Although interesting results can be achieved using neural networks trained on existing moral cases and consequently implementing case based reasoning, the understanding of the moral principles within these black boxes is unknown [6]. Different techniques can be used to reverse-engineer neural network’s inner structure and imbedded rules, however, the result is not exactly the rules used but rather an induced or a probabilistic set of them [7]. In the end of this reverseengineer process, it is attained an induced set of rules of a systems that already uses induction or probabilistic methods to train its processing, revealing a certainty of doubt over the extracted rules.

In much usability evaluation, users are tested on specific tasks in controlled environments [44] where there is a strong focus on measurement. Contextual factors such as time and place, social norms or power structure are only considered later, in terms of how they affect the adoption and use of technology in the workplace. On the other hand, in CSE research there is less separation of work context, work itself and the technology designed to support work. CSE empirical work is usually conducted in the field where researchers explore the so-called ‘wrapped package’ of dynamic interactions among workers, tools, tasks and structures that make up the cognitive work context [45].
