REVISION is building a multilateral accountability network of private and public stakeholders in order to surface ethical innovation principles and accelerate their adoption worldwide.
When the market economy is extractive and public regulation is too slow, we need a new governance system that is able to act across borders and accommodate for rapid technological innovation. REVISION sets out to establish this governance system for advancing the collaborative regulation of emerging technologies and a future that is free from the threats of a surveillance-based economic order.
The REVISION index aggregates compliance data and ranks organizations based on their commitments to ethical technology principles. We are measuring impact in 6 areas:
The assessment criteria are defined and governed by a network of international research institutions and individual experts working in the fields of cyberethics, technoethics, digital human rights, and corporate digital responsibility.
The REVISION index builds on a database that aggregates organizational commitments under each ethical technology principle. When joining REVISION, organizations assess themselves in 6 areas based on the ethical technology guiding principles and agree to keeping their compliance data up to date in the transparency database. The database will be used for calculating the index in future assessment cycles.
The database is available to the public and serves as an online platform for submitting concerns, pointing out tension areas and following organizational progress towards full compliance.
The REVISION network operates with an active accountability mechanism. Active accountability means there is mutual monitoring and real-time information sharing between the network members. Information, expertise, resources, and trust are exchanged real-time, while every implemented measure gets recorded and made available publicly. This eliminates the need for retrospective demanding of accounts.
