Your application raises an important issue, however, it is unfortunately not directly within the aim of our goals. Where your application addresses critical issues, the proposed project was not considered adequately tied to surveillance capitalism or one of the other interrelated obstacles Reset is working to overcome. Reset is focused on advancing research into the ways technology is harming democracy and opportunities for mitigation, fostering development of technologies to combat surveillance commerce and digital threats to democracy, and advocating for a global public policy agenda that sets fair rules and standards for Big Tech companies. While this focus area provides Reset with considerable latitude in funding determinations, it also defines the limits. Reviewers did not identify an adequate connection as to how the proposed project would address specific problems related to these issues. If you consider this determination inaccurate, you are welcome to re-apply and more explicitly highlight how your idea squarely aligns with our mission.
