I've looked into it, while they have some good ideas, they have a disturbing tendency to fall short from their stated goal of eliminating bias. Most times it feels like a bunch of STEMlords looked at philosophy and social sciences from an outsider perspective, and instead of finding their place within a larger body of work, they had NIH-syndrome and decided to reinvent the wheel without all the "cruft" of a rich history. As with most cases where people ignore history, they have a tendency to repeat mistakes and reinvent the wheel badly. This gets dangerous when they fail to identify some simplifying ideological assumption.

You'll find a great deal of criticism of the movement on /r/SneerClub on the old site.
