The Metaverse epitomizes the human rights dilemma inherent in many emerging technologies. Technology is morally neutral, so how can we ensure that it is used for good and not evil? This talk will focus on how we can develop the metaverse to empower humanity and enhance our lives while avoiding becoming a digital dystopia that facilitates human rights abuses. It will emphasize the importance of ensuring that human rights are put at the very heart of the metaverse and that we prioritize human rights-centered design and regulation.
