Innovation in action
Recent work from The Dock: Identity in the Metaverse
Since late 2021, the Human Sciences Studio at The Dock have been studying human interactions in the metaverse. They found three themes that persistently thread their explorations of this new frontier: identity, sociality, and ethics.
This short video from Dr. Sabrina Anjara explores the key human considerations relating to identity in virtual worlds that clients should be conscious of when designing and deploying their role in the emergent metaverse.
The Dock’s team of multidisciplinary innovators are defined by the breadth and depth of their skills, collaborating across business, social science, design, engineering, artificial intelligence and emerging technology.
