    Emotional AI, soft biometrics and the surveillance of emotional life: An unusual consensus on privacy.Andrew McStay - 2020 - Big Data and Society 7 (1).
    By the early 2020s, emotional artificial intelligence will become increasingly present in everyday objects and practices such as assistants, cars, games, mobile phones, wearables, toys, marketing, insurance, policing, education and border controls. There is also keen interest in using these technologies to regulate and optimize the emotional experiences of spaces, such as workplaces, hospitals, prisons, classrooms, travel infrastructures, restaurants, retail and chain stores. Developers frequently claim that their applications do not identify people. Taking the claim at face value, this paper (...)

    The Metaverse: Surveillant Physics, Virtual Realist Governance, and the Missing Commons.Andrew McStay - 2023 - Philosophy and Technology 36 (1):1-26.
    This paper argues that there are value and design-based problems in current ambitions for the Metaverse. With the Metaverse deepening longstanding commercial surveillance practices, the paper focuses on data protection harms from biometric and emotion data, the gauging of first-person perspectives, and sensitivities around profiling of avatars. The paper advances two notions to address harms and data protection: _surveillant physics_ and _virtual realist governance_. _Surveillant physics_ refers to surveillance informing the laws of how that reality operates: this is a useful (...)

    Emotional AI, Ethics, and Japanese Spice: Contributing Community, Wholeness, Sincerity, and Heart.Andrew McStay - 2021 - Philosophy and Technology 34 (4):1781-1802.
    This paper assesses leading Japanese philosophical thought since the onset of Japan’s modernity: namely, from the Meiji Restoration onwards. It argues that there are lessons of global value for AI ethics to be found from examining leading Japanese philosophers of modernity and ethics, each of whom engaged closely with Western philosophical traditions. Turning to these philosophers allows us to advance from what are broadly individualistically and Western-oriented ethical debates regarding emergent technologies that function in relation to AI, by introducing notions (...)

    Empathic media and advertising: Industry, policy, legal and citizen perspectives.Andrew McStay - 2016 - Big Data and Society 3 (2).
    Drawing on interviews with people from the advertising and technology industry, legal experts and policy makers, this paper assesses the rise of emotion detection in digital out-of-home advertising, a practice that often involves facial coding of emotional expressions in public spaces. Having briefly outlined how bodies contribute to targeting processes and the optimisation of the ads themselves, it progresses to detail industrial perspectives, intentions and attitudes to data ethics. Although the paper explores possibilities of this sector, it pays careful attention (...)

    Introduction to Special Theme Veillance and transparency: A critical examination of mutual watching in the post-Snowden, Big Data era.Andrew McStay, Martina Feilzer & Vian Bakir - 2017 - Big Data and Society 4 (1).
    Introducing the Special Theme on Veillance and Transparency: A Critical Examination of Mutual Watching in the Post-Snowden, Big Data Era, this article presents a series of provocations and practices on veillance and transparency in the context of Big Data in a post-Snowden period. In introducing the theoretical and empirical research papers, artistic, activist and educational provocations and commentaries in this Special Theme, it highlights three central debates. Firstly, concerning theory/practice, it queries how useful theories of veillance and transparency are in (...)

    Blurring the moral limits of data markets: biometrics, emotion and data dividends.Vian Bakir, Alexander Laffer & Andrew McStay - forthcoming - AI and Society:1-15.
    This paper considers what liberal philosopher Michael Sandel coins the ‘moral limits of markets’ in relation to the idea of paying people for data about their biometrics and emotions. With Sandel arguing that certain aspects of human life (such as our bodies and body parts) should be beyond monetisation and exchange, others argue that emerging technologies such as Personal Information Management Systems can enable a fairer, paid, data exchange between the individual and the organisation, even regarding highly personal data about (...)

    Privacy and philosophy: new media and affective protocol.Andrew McStay - 2014 - New York: Peter Lang.

    Emotional artificial intelligence in children’s toys and devices: Ethics, governance and practical remedies.Gilad Rosner & Andrew McStay - 2021 - Big Data and Society 8 (1).
    This article examines the social acceptability and governance of emotional artificial intelligence in children’s toys and other child-oriented devices. To explore this, it conducts interviews with stakeholders with a professional interest in emotional AI, toys, children and policy to consider implications of the usage of emotional AI in children’s toys and services. It also conducts a demographically representative UK national survey to ascertain parental perspectives on networked toys that utilise data about emotions. The article highlights disquiet about the evolution of (...)
