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
- preserving solidarity
- capability caution
- the power to decide (to decide)
- promoting prosperity
- preserving solidarity
- avoiding unfairness
- public commitment
- management oversight
- employee education
These are the core principles commonly used in bioethics extended with the principle of explicability (understood as incorporating both the epistemological sense of intelligibility and in the ethical sense of accountability) ° and governance (unerstood as an entry point to compliance with any of the other 5 principles).
