Big data and the increased use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have opened many new opportunities for continuous decision-support by autonomous systems. While initial work has begun to explore how human morality can inform the decision-making of future AI's [4], these approaches consider human morality as a static concept. We note that human morality and decision-making is affected not only by cultures and personalities but is to a large degree affected by an individual's context. In order to align with the moral judgements of their users, future ML applications should adjust their decision-making accordingly based on user context. In this work, we discuss our criti..
