Today, IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, published the IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Extended Reality (XR) Report–Extended Reality (XR) Ethics in Education which explores ethics-related issues to support the development, design, and deployment of XR applications in Education.

In addition, IEEE also published today the IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Extended Reality (XR) Report–Social and Multi-User Spaces in VR: Trolling, Harassment, and Online Safety which explores ethics-related issues in terms of virtual clones and the right to your identity.

Both reports aim to initiate expert-driven, multidiscipline analysis of the evolving XR Ethics requirements, with a vision to propose solutions, technologies, and standards in future updates. The set of recommendations within both reports will hopefully contribute to industry conceptualization of socio-technological issues, highlight concreted recommendations, and lay the groundwork for future technical-standardization activities.
