Prying eyes and ears—the impact of Facebook’s Project Aria on people’s privacy

The rapid evolution and spread of digital technology raise various privacy and ethical issues both for those developing technologies and for the public. Some new technology contains small cameras that can be easily disguised in public, with photo and video data that can be recorded, distributed, exploited and combined with previously collected data. A case in point is Project Aria, launched by tech giant Facebook, in which new mapping technology has been combined with augmented reality (AR) glasses equipped with a smart camera and microphones, enabling users to record and track both public and private spaces, and the people within them—including those who may or may not wish to participate.The rapid evolution and spread of digital technology raise various privacy and ethical issues both for those developing technologies and for the public.
