Designing a Responsible Metaverse, Part II, with Jonathan Lupo and Dr. Alexandra Diening


To find out what it really takes to design a responsible metaverse, we interviewed Jonathan Lupo, EPAM Continuum’s VP of Experience Design, about his own experiences. Lupo tells Dr. Alexandra Diening, EPAM’s Head of Research & Insights for EMEA, that we need to transcend the 2D mindset—in today’s 3D world, “screen-based paradigms shoved in there don't feel right,” he says—and that there needs to be a real focus on keeping people safe and in control of their digital experiences. Lupo talks about the new skills required of a responsible designer and the importance of thinking out worst-case scenarios and how to detour around them.
