The Perception Inception Project

Emerging audiovisual technologies are generating compelling new forms of image and sound information, as well as changing the paradigms of how such information is created and consumed. The “Perception Inception” Project seeks to build a sound foundation for policy by identifying the proper role of law in response to this new synthetic media, and forecasting our informational environment in the near-future. Brainbox scholars are developing a framework for legal analysis of new audiovisual technologies, and a roadmap of how they interact with existing law. With support from the New Zealand Law Foundation and its Centre for Law and Policy in Emerging Technologies.

The accessibility project

Article 9 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities stipulates that governments shall provide persons with disability equal access to the physical environment, to transportation, to information and communication, including information and communication technologies and systems. Brainbox scholars are assisting this legal research project, which seeks to design an accessibility framework for law and policy to inform the development and implementation of an effective system to ensure an accessible future for all people.

The Robosurgery project

Technological advancements are increasing the distances at which teleoperated medicine can take place, in particular surgical procedures. Part of the wider "telehealth” phenomenon, remote robotic-assisted surgery has the potential to redefine traditional medical paradigms. The reality of treatment being administered across huge distances and multiple jurisdictions generates lots of uncertainty, both legal and bioethical. Brainbox scholars working on this project seek not only to provide answers, but to identify the very questions that we need to be concerned about.
