With the emergence of the Pokémon Go phenomenon, augmented reality (AR) is becoming a rapidly growing hype. It brings about important social, economic, and political dynamics that go beyond the game.

The upcoming webinar on Thursday, 15th September, 11:00-12:00 UTC (13:00-14:00 CEST), will unravel the policy-dimensions of augmented reality, as it has impacts a multitude of IG issues, ranging from legal to security and from socio-cultural to economic dimensions.

The following topics will be discussed in further detail:

  • What is augmented reality, and how does Pokémon Go fit into larger technical developments?
  • Is a separate cyberspace still identifiable, and what are the legal consequences of the increased interplay between virtual and digital dimensions?
  • What are the consequences of augmented reality for physical- and cybersecurity?
  • What are the social impacts of augmented reality?

Registration is now over.
