About

Background

We face times when our technologies are developing faster than our ideological capacity to map out their long-term consequences. This is leading to:

data breaches | commoditization of behavioral surplus | unsolicited monitoring | weaponized design | manipulation of elections | incited genocides | massive co2 emissions | unethical supply chains | behavioral modification | social atomization

How can we make sure that technologies are operating for the benefit of all life forms, and advancing a free, equitable, prosperous and sustainable human society?

Mission

Our mission is to protect human autonomy and freedom in the face of rapid technological innovation.

To this end, REVISION establishes a multilateral network of private and public stakeholders in order to govern ethical technology principles collectively and measure their adoption rates across organisations worldwide.

Principles

We use these 6 guiding principles as the basis for assessing compliance with ethical conduct:

BENEFICENCE

+
  • promoting well-being
  • sustaining the planet

NON-MALEFICENCE

+
  • privacy
  • security
  • capability caution

AUTONOMY

+
  • the power to decide (to decide)

JUSTICE

+
  • promoting prosperity
  • preserving solidarity
  • avoiding unfairness

EXPLICABILITY

+
  • intelligibility
  • accountability
  • transparency

GOVERNANCE

+
  • public commitment
  • management oversight
  • transparency

These are the core principles commonly used in bioethics extended with the principle of explicability (understood as incorporating both intelligibility and accountability)° and governance (understood as an entry point to compliance with any of the other 5 principles).
