Blending Tradition & Technology: How FAIR and CARE Principles Shape Our Coastal Communities Project

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Associate Investigator Julian Lilkendey's recent publication emphasises trust through ethical AI use in ecological research.

In our Connecting Coastal Communities project, we are committed to upholding both the Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) and the Collective Benefit, Authority to Control, Responsibility, and Ethics (CARE) principles in our research practices. The recent publication by our Associate Investigator Julian Lilkendey on the ethical and legal considerations of using AI in ecological research aligns well with this commitment.

Julian’s Viewpoint article published in Ecology Letters focuses on FAIR principles and resonates with our broader goal to build a knowledge-sharing network that includes not just scientists but also the wider community. Additionally, we aim to enhance the visibility and application of the CARE principles, advocating for their integration in research involving Indigenous and local communities like Vavanga village.

By adhering to these comprehensive ethical and data management standards, we strive to create a collaborative environment where modern scientific methods and traditional wisdom coalesce, ensuring our research is both innovative and ethically sound.
