“What we are doing right now, will affect generations to come.”
In the latest episode of Access Partnership’s Global Policy Review podcast, host Dana Poponete is joined by Luis Bravo Martins, Chief Marketing Officer of KIT-AR, to discuss his new book, Metaversed – See Beyond the Hype.
In a wide-ranging conversation, Luis shares his definition of the metaverse, his perspective on the opportunities presented by the technology, and his thoughts on why policymakers hold the key to unlocking its potential in a way that is fair, equitable, and user-centric across economies of all sizes.
Stressing the inevitability of the metaverse’s transformative impact, Luis highlights the urgency of challenges around data ownership, privacy, and international coordination against a backdrop of rising geopolitical tension. He also outlines the importance of regulatory leadership and the need for an experimental, hands-on approach that unites policymakers with the communities currently driving adoption.
There are currently mixed signals about the future direction of the metaverse, making it difficult to understand where we stand regarding this proposed milestone in physical and digital convergence. Access Partnership will host two webinars in April to discuss these issues.
Our first event, ‘Centralised versus Decentralised: Should the metaverse be built on a centralised or decentralised platform?’, will explore how to balance flexibility, security, and governance concerns in virtual worlds. The second, ‘The Industrial Metaverse: How do we foster innovation?’, will explore how public policy can help to promote collaboration while respecting individual privacy.
