A PC Magazine article features ICT’s Bravemind virtual reality exposure therapy system for treating post-traumatic stress and SimCoach, a virtual human that can interact with users over the web. Rizzo notes that people can reveal more to virtual humans than to real ones.
“That’s the big finding from this work: people will tell the virtual human stuff they don’t feel able to tell someone who is judging them. There’s less worry about impression management, more revelation of sad events, more self-disclosure – it works,” he said.
