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?
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.
We use these 6 guiding principles as the basis for assessing compliance with ethical conduct:
- promoting well-being
- sustaining the planet
- capability caution
- the power to decide (to decide)
- promoting prosperity
- preserving solidarity
- avoiding unfairness
- public commitment
- management oversight
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).
