Description

Virtual reality has been around for 50 years, and for most of us, we are familiar with its recent impact on the entertainment industry. But what about all the other ways that VR technology is transforming industries and impacting our ability to teach, train, treat, communicate, and influence the way we perceive the world?

Join us for our next segment of Infinite Possibilities as we explore how virtual reality has extraordinarily shifted the way we experience the digital realm. Learn how technology impacts decision making at Lowe’s and how the company leverages virtual and augmented reality in both the employee and customer experience. Find out how one Davidson alumna used VR to simulate the daily struggles of being a student of color at a predominantly white institution. Delve into the possibilities of virtual reality — can VR reduce racism, create empathy, change behavior, or reinforce stereotypes? Are there ethical obligations that we should consider when developing VR applications?
