Skip Rizzo, ICT’s associate director for medical virtual reality was one of the featured presenters at the 2010 TEDxUSC event.  Rizzo demonstrated his virtual reality therapy designed to treat post traumatic stress in soldiers and veterans. He also spoke to the audience of over 1,200 people about ICT’s collaboration with the USC School of Social Work’s specialization in military social work and veterans services which will incorporate training in virtual reality therapy and other ICT-developed technologies including virtual patients for diagnostic and interview skill training.  At the TEDxUSC reception, attendees experienced live demonstrations of ICT’s Virtual Museum Guides, live 3D Video Teleconferencing System and motor and rehab therapies. The TED conference began over 25 years ago a to bring together some of the world’s greatest thinkers.  In 2009 USC piloted the TEDx program – a new program of independently organized events. That successful event was followed by more than 500 TEDx events held in 60 countries and 25 languages.
