Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab
The mission of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab is to understand the dynamics and implications of interactions among people in immersive virtual reality simulations (VR), and other forms of human digital representations in media, communication systems, and games. Our work is centered on using empirical, behavioral science methodologies to explore people as they interact in these digital worlds. rnOur research programs tend to fall under one of three larger questions:rnWhat new social issues arise from the use of immersive VR communication systems?rnHow can VR be used as a basic research tool to study the nuances of face-to-face interaction?rnHow can VR be applied to improve everyday life, such as conservation, empathy, and communications systems?
