History, Boundaries, Best Practices, and Team-Based Workable Paths Forward
Advanced technology in software and hardware that interacts with humans can radically benefit from a team-based approach to the research and regulatory process. What we call human subjects research has been going on for time immemorial. In the United States, the history of the last century resulted in regulations that are reactionary. What is critical as we develop and deploy new technology in this world is to conduct this research being sensitive to that history without being crippled by it, to understand boundaries well so we know what threshold we are on, and to learn from one another how to conduct research on humans employing some best practices that make the researchers, participants, and oversight groups lives easier.
