Bring abstract concepts to life with AR expeditions Over the last three years, Google Expeditions has helped students go on virtual field trips to far-off places like Machu Picchu, the International Space Station and the Galapagos Islands. The more you look around those places in virtual reality (VR), the more you notice all the amazing things that are there. And while we’ve seen first hand how powerful a tool VR is for going places, we think augmented reality (AR) is the best way to learn more about the things you find there. Imagine walking around a life-sized African elephant in your classroom or putting a museum's worth of ancient Greek statues on your table.

On a disused strip of land on Lake Ontario, tech company Sidewalk Labs proposes creating a city of the future, using arrays of sensors to measure residents' movements and learn how to design streets, buildings and transportation to improve their lives in measurable ways. But who gets to control, access and profit from the data? For months, questions like these have divided Torontonians, the tech industry, the government agency deciding the waterfront’s fate and the experts advising that agency, many of whom have quit in protest over the ethical issues at stake. Now, the government of Ontario Premier Doug Ford is intervening, firing three of the provincially appointed directors to the board deciding the project’s future. Here’s a guide to The Globe and Mail’s coverage of the story so far.

With politicians rushing to show Canada’s innovation chops, “smart cities” have emerged as their new frontier. Most consequential of these is a high-profile agreement between Waterfront Toronto and Sidewalk Labs, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet. A year ago, Canadians were treated to an announcement involving the leaders of all three levels of government gushing and fawning about an enlightened urban partnership with a foreign company whose business model is built exclusively on the principle of mass surveillance. The most insightful comments during the public announcement came when Eric Schmidt, Google’s former executive chair, said they had realized their long-running dream for “someone to give us a city and put us in charge.”
