Dice: Using virtual avatars to create real empathy

We have reached a point where computers are needed to make our medical providers act more human.

The MPathic-VR system covers a wide range of situations and real-world behaviors that are typical in a clinical situation. You can read my story on Medical Cyberworlds (who developed the system) on Dice today here.
