"I'm good I'm good how are you you look you look great new hair style right meet Barry he's a slim gray head office employee well into the sixties he was a pale blue shirt no tie and he looks tired his face is etched with lines of exhaustion and today well today Barry's being fired from his job you're really fight what what am I going to do let's just talk about this I can't believe this hello my god how could you I have twenty more years experience than anyone in there have you looked at my sales numbers how do you justify this based on those numbers no it's not a good day for Barry but then it's never a good day for Barry because he's part of a virtual reality training program that helps employers practice to fire employees in other words Barry's not real he's a character created by a company called tailspin which develops virtual reality programs for the workplace the trainee was a virtual reality headset Barry appears in front of them and depending on how the trainee handles the situation Larry responds by either getting angry sobbing or calmly accepting news of his sacking should the opportunity the was a pleasure working with you it's a long way from the early promise of virtual reality when Facebook page three billion dollars to buy the headset maker oculus VR at the time magazines like vanity fad devoted cover stories to the technology hailing it as something that would change the world particularly in the fields of entertainment so is this new found purpose for the office training software in the business world just a gimmick or is it actually useful a question for Mari and Schmidt lost she's professor of organizational behavior at the university of Lausanne in Switzerland she's studied the use of VR in skills training I started by asking him does it work better than traditional role playing I often get the question well how can use virtual reality work have a Taurus to train something that is generally you meant like into personal or social skills and the answer is that it's actually not the program or the algorithm where the avatar that is training to people but we use it as a technology to train and to always still have the U. when experts behind that so just to give you an example training off of public speaking is often done now a days with virtual reality and again it's mostly cost considerations because you can have a room full of people that might even miss behavior during your talk so that you can train to become more stress resistant and you can train your talk in very adverse conditions but still in sort of a safe place because you sort of no it's just virtual reality so it's very cost efficient public speaking how would that work using virtual reality to train as a public speaker how would that work centrally you put on the headset and then you're in a room off you're choosing order programmers fantasy so you can have like a big conference room let's imagine and then you start talking about for your research or your product or whatever you present and then in either during the program can pick up on some of your behavior or the trainer can introduce some reactions of the public so for instance we use it in training for for teachers and teachers or professors at universities we get very stressed when the students start to walk out of the room or or behind their computers and so we can have stressful elements in the public yeah that you can train with right so people can leave the room or they can fall asleep or they can say like I don't understand or will this is not interesting or things like that and that's very stressful but at the end of the day the person who's got the headset the virtual reality headset all the news is simply working in the simulated environment the end of the day you cut and no it's not real it can never replace actually being trained in a real life situation kinda I agree I agree you can't replace it completely but he can be a very effective intermediate step why is that just exactly because it has this and and I'll phrase it as an advantage that they are conscious about the fact that it's not real and if you're very very stressed and you have anxiety about public speaking that's exactly what helps to control your anxiety because in your head you gonna tell yourself well okay now I'm feeling stressed that have like these moist hands and you know my heart is pumping blood I sort of know these are just avatar so it doesn't make much sense to be so stressed and that's a very very effective strategy to control your stress and we've seen that from evidence in anxiety disorder training so it's really just taking something that has proven to be very effective in clinical psychology to the normal population and use it for training proponents of of using virtual reality in in training and and in workplace environments also say it helps increase awareness about things that bias and harassment is that true could it really be affect Evan tackling those kind of very human things I haven't so for seeing the very very effective training in terms of bias I think that's something really that you need to become aware of and to the extent that you can experience the amperage from gallery that can help but yeah I think really the added value is much more in terms of you can create new environments and you can also use it in ways that you can train in reality I give you an example for instance we use virtual reality and we create what's called a doppelganger so a person an avatar that looks exactly like you so you can meet yourself in virtual reality now what is that good for so we have one study going on where we look at one very stressful situations for managers when they have to fire collaborator now what we do is we train half of the participants to fire an avatar avatar themselves exactly and then the other port the other group they are trained to fire themselves I can see people going home having very interesting conversations with their families yeah what did you do today buy it myself yeah and and the idea is to train empathy your perspective taking because if you find yourself you might probably think of the consequences of fat and then we test whether they actually show more empathy once they have to fire another collaborator after having been trained to fire themselves and that's something that is really hard to do obviously in real life and that's where I think technology comes in a virtual reality comes in that case is new possibilities of training that we haven't even explored Merion Schmitz most of the university of Lausanne in Switzerland turns out there are many other uses VR technology in the workplace to be owns training so much so that the market intelligence company IDC has said it expects spending on old minted reality and virtual reality to go to eighteen point eight billion dollars this year that's almost eighty percent more than last year and the IDC predicts most of that spending will come not from consumers but from the business world Walmart in the U. S. for example now uses virtual reality headsets to test which employees have the aptitude for middle management positions all of which might explain why Microsoft has developed a new mentored reality program and had set called Hoda lands to intended not for consumers but the business industrial and commercial applications our producer Josh with full tried one out with help from Microsoft's Greg Sullivan the company's director of mixed reality so you've got this will put a head set or helmets it is and it's it is a mix generality had said Microsoft hololens too it is a computer that you wear on your head that is a wireless fully self contained and it brings three dimensional digital objects are holograms into your world and yeah you put it on your head like a like a cap and then it has a display that projects these three dimensional images that I can see in the real world in front of me and just before we start the recording I saw you calibrated sets it up and it was quite surreal to watch because you sort of pressing in putting things in the air and makes me look a little bit like a crazy person if you don't understand what's going on is I'm I'm just take you lading and I'm moving things in the air that aren't really there but to me they're real I can see these fully three dimensional digital objects that I manipulating and when you put it on your head you'll seem to quite well let's have a go ahead I'm going to put it on your head and the first thing we'll do go head that brawl pad wants to rest comfortably on your forehead make sure the visor is pushed fully down and in so you can see all four corners I can see for coolness not next so on that she just pressing into the into the voice of the gems with your eyes seventy two photos engines with my own eyes K. yeah.
