Jewish Journal Features New Dimensions in Testimony

July 2, 2015

An article in the Jewish Journal provided an in-depth look at New Dimensions in Testimony, an effort to preserve the ability to ask questions of Holocaust survivors far into the future. The project is a collaboration between the USC Shoah Foundation and ICT, in partnership with Conscience Display.

The article notes that the project relies on the ICT’s development of a natural language processor, which filters the questions through speech-recognition software and then searches for the most appropriate response. The institute also lent its experience with holographic display to make the survivor look three-dimensional without requiring viewers to wear special eyeglasses.
