Sebelum mulai, saya minta maaf terlebih dahulu: dalam rangka menjaga esensi dari bagian tugas yang ini, saya akan menganalisis dalam bahasa Inggris mengingat tabel yang akan saya pakai untuk analisis solusi yang ada berada dalam bahasa Inggris.
Previously, I had posted two preexisting solutions to the problem of losing your valuables.
(link: Here bruh)
Please read from the link above to get the gist of this post.
My job this time is to dissect these solutions and refer to the global ethic code of engineers to determine whether these solutions are actually ethical or not. There are 6 tenets in the code:
- Hold paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public.
- Perform services only in the area of your competence.
- Issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner
- Act for each employer or client as faithful agents or trustee
- Avoid deceptive acts.
- Conduct themselves honorably.
The first solution I included in an earlier post pertained using “psychic” powers based on a makeshift pendulum.
- Tenet 1: Yes, I think it should. However, I will ask anyone who actually does this if they are mentally healthy or not.
- Tenet 2: It is still unclear as to whether the creators of this solution made this solution because they were competent in psychic power usage or if they were just plain out scamming people. As a skeptic, consider the answer “no” for this tenet.
- Tenet 3: As I said before, the whole basis of this solution is (for me) rather dubious and very subjective. Definitely a “no” for this one.
- Tenet 4: Yes, since it appears this solution hasn’t lost popularity.
- Tenet 5: After referring to what I said on tenets 2 and 3, I’m still set on “no”.
- Tenet 6: The basis of the solution itself is questionable, so “no”.
The second solution involves installing a multi-feature tracker into the things that are intended to be tracked along with an application related to the tracker.
- Tenet 1: This type of solution, as far as I know, only affects the amount of money in your wallet, so “yes”.
- Tenet 2: This product is the only product of the company called TrackR; it is rather obvious that the people at TrackR only perform services related to this product, and thus their area of competence. Yes.
- Tenet 3: Unless there is info on “public statements” I am unaware of pertaining this product, then the answer should be “yes”; no substantial criticism/complaints regarding this product has been made thus far.
- Tenet 4: Yes.
- Tenet 5: The whole system of premises of this product is based on scientific facts and existing technology, and while the people at TrackR could very well still deceive us, the knowledge that their product is based on technology alone tips the scale to “yes” rather than “no”.
- Tenet 6: Yes.
