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.
