ABOUT THE TALK
While gaming and entertainment have propelled immense growth in the use of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), are these technologies really capable of changing our society? Amitabh Varshney and his team at the Maryland Blended Reality Center believe so, and they're currently working on projects that can literally save lives and transform how we interact with the world around us. Varshney will discuss the use of VR and AR in emergency medicine, both for diagnostic imaging and medical training. Other work involves the use of VR to help law enforcement agencies recognize and combat implicit bias. And his team's work with creative artists at UMD offers exciting new ways for people to experience the joy and beauty of an opera performance
