CNN highlighted SimCoach, a web-based interactive simulation technology project co-led by Skip Rizzo and others at ICT.  SimCoach is designed to help veterans and their families find resources to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. The story noted that the program will eventually attempt to detect the emotion behind spoken words, which is especially hard for computers to analyze. While humans may be able to tell when something is wrong with a close friend or family member through speech pattern, a computer can have a hard time picking up these signals, Rizzo said.
