The AR Dilemma (Keynote)
Mark Pesce (Via Zoom + live Q&A)
When we don the next generation of AR ‘mirrorshades’, the world will reveal its inner ‘digital depth’. For the first time, the world will speak for itself; its content and context will shape our passage through it. But at what cost? By design, augmented reality is a technology of “hypersurveillance”, requiring millions to wear head-mounted cameras, orientation sensors and eye gaze detectors. Who collects this rich stream of highly personal sensor data? How is it used – and whose purposes will it serve? These questions lie before us as we cross the threshold of what will surely be the “augmented decade”.
