As augmented reality becomes more commonplace in newsroom storytelling, questions about how to ethically capture and recreate places, objects or events gain salience. Join this immersive session for a robust discussion of ethical norms related to privacy, ownership, representation and reconstruction in AR.

This session is designed for:

  • Leaders who could make use of a four-point scan to evaluate potential ethical issues
  • Newsrooms interested in building a framework for production and distribution of AR
  • Anyone seeking a serious conversation about the ethical use of technology
