Friends With Holograms: Using VR to train social workers to sniff out child abuse

In this article, a training program for social workers is presented. It is made by Accenture to help people to develop their observation skills in a very difficult context, using VR and voice recognition.

The idea is to help caseworkers refine their skills in a real-world setting, interviewing a child, a mother, and an admittedly scary-looking father. Only the immersive storytelling and interactivity of VR and voice could make this training so impactful, said Cortney Harding, founder of Friends With Holograms, in an interview with VentureBeat.
