Embedding Human Rights into the Metaverse: XR Ethics & Experiential Design

Most folks focus on the underlying technology stack when speaking about the Metaverse, but what is the best way to embed human rights, ethics, & responsible innovation into the experiential design process? Voices of VR podcast host Kent Bye will help set a broader context for the many discussions about XR Ethics, Privacy, NeuroRights, Digital Rights, and Human Rights that have been happening across the XR industry, and will provide a holistic sensemaking framework to understand how technological architectures for XR need to be set within a context of ethical design practices, but also navigate the larger dimensions of culture, laws, market dynamics, and encourage sustainable development practices that are in right relationship to the Earth.
