Community co-creation is clearly going to be an essential component of the immersive future version of the Internet—the Metaverse. But enabling anyone to design, build and publish immersive, interoperable experiences and metaverse items for others to consume, is no small feat. From supporting a mix of skill levels among creators to architecting an inherently global infrastructure that these diverse developer communities can utilize, to managing latency, virtual economy and social/cultural norms in the context of an interactive global public space, there is a myriad of complex technical challenges to be solved for the true Metaverse to fully materialize. Hear from Daniel Sturman, CTO at Roblox, how the global platform is trailblazing solutions for these fundamental challenges to connect a billion people through shared experiences in a safe and civil metaverse and enable their creative expression, and what technology is yet to be built to power user-generated content (UGC) at scale.
