Dear all,
Many thanks for the great news! The idea with the overlap of the topic of
the WG and the IG was to address topics in the IG which won’t be addressed
by the WG session but to inform each other since the WG is under the
umbrella of the IG. The goal of the IG is to have discussions beyond
FAIRness of VREs that could spin out a further WG addressing trust in and
critical thinking about results in VREs when using novel technologies such
as AI and VR. We mention FAIRness to address that this is one aspect for
increasing trust but we think it is not enough to make VREs fair to achieve
trust and avoid “blind trust”. We aim at discussing the balance between
trust and critical thinking.
Does that sound okay? Should we maybe change the title?
