Spatial computing is said to revolutionize how we inhabit public and private living spaces, bridging the gap between the virtual and the physical into one rich, immersive reality. Advanced wearable devices powered by AI can now translate user choice through motion and voice control, with the potential to elevate digital content experiences to unprecedented levels. This new reality must also confront another reality that without proper safeguards and privacy brakes, spatial computing could quickly become highly intrusive and compromise user privacy. There is no denying that, left unchecked, harvesting of motion data and personal attributes would be misused to uniquely identify individuals, and indiscriminate data gathering of one’s surroundings may enable micro surveillance. In this panel, we will look at some of the hard questions on spatial computing privacy and AI, including the latest tech in the field, navigating this complex new phenomenon from different perspectives.

  • Is AI pushing the boundaries of spatial privacy and could privacy by design be a differentiating factor in this new era? 
  • How are AI and privacy regulators tackling the challenges of spatial computing?
  • Are new uses of spatial computing in shared living spaces applying pressure on privacy rights? 
  • Are the existing frameworks in privacy and AI regulation ready to protect user and bystanders’ fundamental rights?
