Resolving Artificial Intelligence Governance Challenges through Policy Prototyping

Learning how to make policy work better for society is a continuous evolving process. As a group of Masters students in Public Policy at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, we fully appreciate this. Experimentation using novel tools such as product and policy prototyping as part of the “People-centric Approaches to Algorithmic Explainability” project driven by Meta’s TTC Labs and Open Loop presented an opportunity to explore experimental methodologies in the space of emerging technology. What’s more, in a critical area like artificial intelligence (AI) which is already part of the fabric of modern life yet is growing more complex, requires careful consideration of governance approaches.

How we’ve used co-design to develop parental supervision tools at Meta

Designing digital products for young people presents unique challenges. As obvious as it may seem, it can be easy to forget that teens are not miniature adults, but a population with distinct and rapidly-evolving needs, goals and motivations. As product makers, we also recognize that we don’t have all the answers, and that gathering young people’s perspectives on the technologies that impact their lives is essential to ensuring their needs are met.

Our approach to co-designing with teens and parents/guardians

As we work to support young people and their families across Meta technologies, we’re committed to learning from teens, parents, guardians and experts. Through our global program of co-design and expert consultation, we use a multidisciplinary research approach that invites people to participate as collaborators in our design process, empowering them to have their say and ensuring our products meet their needs.

Why privacy policies are falling short...

Do you actually read an app or website’s privacy policy before clicking to accept the terms?

Most of us don’t – and that means privacy policies are missing the mark.

Content strategy: the power of words

When people think of design, they tend to focus on pixels, colours, fonts and interactions. The words and language inside these interfaces are often overlooked. This is a problem when you consider that without words, the majority of online interfaces would essentially be meaningless.

TTC Labs is a cross-industry effort to create innovative design solutions that put people in control of their privacy.

Initiated and supported by Meta, and built on collaboration, the movement has grown to include hundreds of organisations, including major global businesses, startups, civic organisations and academic institutions.
