WorldBank Group ID4D Mission Billion Challenge 2019… The focus of the competition is on “How can digital identification systems in developing countries be better designed or adapted to protect people’s privacy and empower them with greater control over their personal data?”
The Challenge seeks creative ideas and innovative solutions to promote ‘privacy by design’ and provide people with greater control over their personal data through features that can be embedded into digital identification systems, such as:
- Providing greater oversight and control of personal data: Solutions that enable individuals to inspect, update and correct personal data; provide transparency regarding who has accessed their data and for what purpose; and the ability to seek redress for unauthorized use.
- Preventing the misuse of personal data: Solutions that can help protect an individual’s personal data from misuse or unintended disclosure, such as through minimizing, hiding, compartmentalizing personal data, tamper proof logs, or other means.
- Finalists will be invited to a high-level event in Washington, D.C. to present their solutions in front of distinguished judges. A total of US$100,000 in cash prizes is available with a top prize of US$50,000.
- Open to academics, entrepreneurs, scientists, technologists, and engaged citizens;
- ID4D considers solutions at all stages of development:
- Idea: A plan or concept by an individual or organization.
- Prototype: An individual or organization building and testing a product, service, or model.
- Pilot: An individual or organization deploying a tested product, service, or model in at least one location.
- Growth: An individual or organization with an established product, service or model rolled out, which is poised for further growth in multiple locations.
- Scale: An individual or organization working in several locations and that is looking to scale significantly, focusing on increased efficiency.
- In the first round, the judging committee will perform an initial screening of all applications for completeness, for coherency, and for whether the solution appropriately addresses the challenge. Then judges will score the screened applications to determine finalists. Here are the criteria the judges will use to score the applications on the website:
- Alignment: The solution addresses the challenge that has been set forth.
- Context Appropriateness: The solution takes into account the context of developing countries, including low to no connectivity in some areas and little formal technical training among individuals, as well as low literacy and numeracy levels.
- Scalability and Ease of Use: The solution can easily be scaled to affect the lives of millions of people.
- Feasibility: It is feasible to implement the solution, and the team has a plan for the solution to sustain itself after implementation.
- Innovative Approach: This is a new technology, a new application of a technology, or a new process for solving the challenge.
- In the second round, selected finalists will pitch before the challenge judges and a live audience during a pitch event in April. The judges will determine which solutions are the most promising. Those selected will receive prizes and support from ID4D.
