Privacy Hangout, hosted by IEEE and focused on AR and the "digital layer"  come join us!  
As the use of mobile Augmented Reality (AR) 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.
