PC Magazine featured  ICT’s ViTA for Veterans project, led by Skip Rizzo and Matthew Trimmer, to develop a job interview training program using virtual humans. Originally used to assist people with autism practice for interviews, Rizzo and colleagues created six characters that employ various interviewing techniques that are now also being used by the United States Veterans Initiative in Los Angeles. According to Rizzo, ICT is in the process of making the virtual humans more responsive and conversational.
