Call for companies

It is a fact that when people believe that a product or service is transparent and reliable, they are more likely to connect with that brand. Trust brings a willingness to try, use the product, and even share personal information. The positive and predictable user experience when it comes to risk understanding is the first and foremost thing to build consumer trust in your brand.

We invite AI companies to apply. We will be selecting up to 6 candidates to participate in this workshop with their products. We require the attendance of at least one representative per company. Typically, representatives are CTO, CSO, CDO, or Product Owners who possess decision power in the company transparency approaches, but also have sufficient knowledge on their product’s privacy/data/cybersecurity/fairness/unbias measures. To register as a company, fill in the form on this page.


Participants will consist of a diverse audience consisting of ethicists, AI practitioners, philosophers, policy-makers, and human rights specialists. The registration for participants is available by this link.


This is the list of topics around which we will be structuring the workshop.

  • Transparency as a product requirement. How to develop specs for transparency?
  • Open Ethics Label and Transparency Protocol. How to make standards enforceable?
  • Zero-knowledge proofs, “ethical” behavior, and implications for transparency.

Benefits of self-disclosure for the AI companies

  • Specs for transparency: Understand which elements to focus on to establish trust with consumers of your AI product
  • Establish trust: Bring perception of true reciprocity with users when it comes to sharing sensitive personal data
  • Regulatory requirements: Become full-armed to understand and to address the regulatory requirements
