Out of meeting with digital minister
Caroline Dinenage and tech cos on #onlineharms and transparency.
A few thoughts on this: first, transparency is the easy bit, we all agree we need evidence.
However, making transparency generate comparability is really hard, or in practice impossible. Platforms are different, practices are different, users are different.
What we really need is *evidence*: neutrally generated, independent academic evidence.
This extends to platform systems and algorithms.
