Augmented Reality: When will the breakthrough arrive in journalism?
10:00-10:45

For many, AR still sounds like Pokémon Go and expensive, rather clunky headsets. But the status quo is deceptive. Augmented reality could become the next big thing, paving the way for the Internet to enter the spatial world around us. Better glasses are being worked on. Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Google are investing billions. For journalists, this makes the topic doubly relevant: AR opens up new storytelling possibilities. If we don't keep a critical eye on the process, a few tech giants will dominate the AR infrastructure of the future - and the technology could become a data privacy nightmare.
