2018 XR PRIVACY SUMMIT

Jeremy Bailensen, Kent Bye, Philip Rosedale and I co-organized a XR Privacy Summit at Stanford on November 8, 2018 which drew participants from top VR/AR/MR companies.

PRIVACY AND RISK MITIGATION WORKSHOP

At the summit, I ran a workshop with all participants to define the costs of not protecting users and also brainstorm solutions. Use these slides if you wish to run a similar privacy workshop, or contact me for a custom training.

CURRENT VR USER PRIVACY PREFERENCES

Existing research confirms that users care what data is being collected and how it is being used. However, only half of regular VR users report feel they can control their privacy settings. Given the types of insights (identity, mental state, medical info, etc) that can potentially be extracted from gaze, pupil dilation, and head & hand movements, it is important to have strategies in place that protect sensitive information about users.
