Forbes features a Q and A with Jacki Morie, a senior scientist at ICT who studies virtual worlds and how people use them. The article notes Morie’s work exploring building virtual worlds as healing spaces for veterans as well as her belief in their potential to impact many areas of daily life. “You can use virtual worlds in education, in delivery services, or as an advanced form of telehealthcare that offers so much more than videoconferencing,” she said. “Virtual worlds can give us social connectivity, built-in support groups, and ways to avoid ever being alone again.”
