Augmented Reality and Privacy Webinar with the IEEE
March 28, 2014
I had the chance to do a great webinar for the IEEE today about Augmented Reality and Privacy. Here's the description, and I posted the video as well:
As the use of mobile Augmented Reality becomes more pervasive, companies and individuals are exploring many new opportunities to simplify their lives and streamline their businesses. Most AR systems are delivering information just-in-time in small, context-sensitive bites, and are also capable of capturing every movement and adapting over time with use. The same sensors are also capturing the faces of those who are un-intentionally in the camera’s field of view. The panelists gathered for this session are experts in information privacy, identity management and personal data. They will share their opinions about the impacts AR may have on corporate and personal privacy:
What happens to the personal information these systems collect?
Is there a contradiction between wanting contextually-sensitive service as well as privacy?
What compromises are being made by users? By businesses?
What policies are in place today and how are those being tested, enforced or ignored? When and where will concerns for personal data and privacy over-ride the desire (or need) for instant access to contextual information?
