I’ve volunteered to chair and head up the white paper committee, and so I presented an proposed timeline and an initial survey of the landscape of ethical and moral dilemmas of XR based upon my previous work within my XR Ethics Manifesto. Here’s a video of my presentation from that initial meeting on February 5th, 2021:
Here’s my initial survey of the landscape of ethical issues. This is merely a starting point, and how we end up breaking this up into chapters is very much open to deliberation by this community-driven effort.
There’s going to be lots of stuff that’s not included, and there will also be generalized principles independent and universal across all contexts, but also other lenses and perspectives to be included. I’m going to attempt to be as inclusive and pluralistic as I can in how we structure this white paper on XR Ethics.
To get more involved, then you can sign up here to stay informed over the whole time period, or if you want to dive in and help collaborate on one of the subcommittees, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the “Subject: Add Me to iMeet Platform.”
The full slide deck can also be found here.
We’re getting our collaboration platform set up, and I look forward to working on this project with the community. If you have any questions, then feel free to ping me @kentbye on Twitter.
