Project overview

Project Overview

  • Started Spring ’04

  • n > 2100 health care students

  • One of the most experienced VH/VR experiences

  • Integration at five institutes

    • University of Florida

    • University of Central Florida

    • Medical College of Georgia

    • University of Georgia

    • Keele University (U.K.)

  • 21 person team

    • Computer Science

    • Medicine

    • Education

    • Psychology


Virtual patients

Virtual Patients

  • Speak to a life-size VH

  • Interview a virtual patient via the web

  • Visit a virtual patient in Second Life


Developing virtual character conversation model

Developing Virtual Character Conversation Model

  • Virtual People Factory

    • Web-based interface

    • End-user creation of content

    • Pharmacy patient

    • Create a VP in two weeks

  • In 6 months

    • Over 2000 interactions

    • 12 end-user created scenarios

  • End-user created scripts can reach 85% accuracy


After action review

After-Action Review

  • Students

    • Students received email with link

    • Sample student (Brent/45169)

    • Self-directed review of content, video, and feedback

    • Compare against experts

  • Educators

    • Educators can review student interactions

    • Data from study

    • Filter based on user background

      • Level of expertise

      • Gender

      • Educator-defined metrics

    • Identify trends and outliers


Physical examinations of virtual human patients

Physical Examinations of Virtual Human Patients

  • Mixed reality humans

    • Passive-haptic interface to life-sized virtual human

    • Applications

      • Clinical breast exam

      • Prostate exam (upcoming)

  • Medical students can

    • Concurrently practice physical examination and communication skills

    • Get real-time feedback of exam performance

      • Coverage

      • Pressure


Abnormal findings cranial nerve

Abnormal Findings: Cranial Nerve

  • Multi-tool interface to VH

    • Wii Remote controls multiple virtual tools used in eye exam

    • Gestural and tool input, in addition to speech

  • Medical students can

    • Experience interactions difficult to curricularly plan or are infrequent occurrences

    • Learn how to use neurological tests to diagnose a patient with a vision disorder


Biases with virtual humans

Biases with Virtual Humans

  • Small visual change => large behavioral change in Empathy

  • Empathy correlates with real world bias

  • People treat the VHs below differently

“Could this be cancer?”


Community outreach museum of science and industry

Community Outreach: Museum of Science and Industry

  • Science museum in Tampa, FL

  • 5th largest in US (75,000 sq ft.)

  • 1 million guests

  • Integrate a VH interaction

    • The Amazing You exhibit

    • Lifelong wellness information

    • Fall ’09

  • Inspire, Inform

  • Explore race, VH bias
