22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, The Future of Imagination: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and How We Shape Our World, A Panel Discussion - Last summer, U.S. cities found themselves overwhelmed with thousands of people disrupting public spaces while playing Pokémon GO, an augmented reality (AR) game which overlays digital images onto what is seen in real life. Virtual reality (VR), which places the user in a new setting while maintaining the use of their body, has also exploded in popularity. It is seeing increased use in gaming, the workplace, and in the classroom, and could even revolutionize how we empathize. However, VR and AR do not exist without intense scrutiny.

In Milwaukee, the county board supervisor proposed an amendment in response to the popularity of Pokémon GO, requiring VR companies to get a permit before integrating the game into the community. Senator Franken of Minnesota, Minority Leader of the Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology, and the Law, is concerned about the sharing of users’ personal data, which now include physical movements and dimensions. Furthermore, there are issues involved with First Amendment protection. Brown V Entertainment Merchants Association, in 2011, qualified all video games for First Amendment protection, regardless of its level of violence. The question is now whether VR and AR qualify under that protection and as VR allows users to engage in illegal activities through immersive experiences, there is concern about blurring the line between real and fantasy crime.

With Cleveland encouraging VR and AR through new start-ups which utilize resources such as the Cleveland Institute of Art and Kent State University, technology that was once only seen in a galaxy far, far, away, may soon be right next door.

Panelists include: Philip Lelyveld, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality Project Lead, USC Entertainment Technology Center; Kimberly Culp, Counsel, Venable LLP; Jarryd Huntley, Software Development Instructor, We Can Code IT, and Adjunct Professor, Computer Games and Simulation Design, Lorain County Community College. This conversation will be moderated by Patrick Kabat, Adjunct Professor of Law of the Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
