Call for input: Ranking Digital Rights releases draft indicators on targeted advertising, algorithmic systems

Author: Ranking Digital Rights, Published on: 18 October 2019

Earlier this year, we began a process of expanding the RDR Index methodology to address human rights harms associated with companies’ ​targeted advertising policies and practices​, and for their use and development of algorithmic decision-making systems.... We are thrilled to publish draft indicators and to invite feedback from companies, policy experts, internet users, and other stakeholders... Our goal with these new indicators—which will be piloted in the coming weeks—is to set global accountability and transparency standards, grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), for how major, publicly traded internet, mobile, and telecommunications companies can demonstrate respect for human rights online as they develop and deploy these new technologies. A description of the methodology development process can be found on our website.

... The draft indicators can be downloaded at the following link: “RDR Corporate Accountability Index: Draft Indicators—Transparency and accountability standards for targeted advertising and algorithmic decision-making systems.” Please send feedback to [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you.
