The Augmented and Virtual Reality Policy Conference
In the last decade, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) have evolved from niche tools for enthusiasts and high-tech industries to more widely adopted communications technologies that have the potential to transform the way people communicate, collaborate, and learn. As AR/VR solutions gain traction across sectors, they will raise important policy considerations-some of which are already a part of broader tech policy discussions, while others will be unique to these technologies.
Through a series of expert talks and panels, this half-day, virtual conference organized by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation and the XR Association explored the role of policy in AR/VR innovation and identified priority areas for policymakers to consider as these technologies continue to expand. Sessions includee discussions on trust and safety concerns, key policy considerations, government investment and adoption, and the potential of these technologies in the future of work.
