Stanford Bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences Seminar, "Applications of Mixed Reality in Medical Education and Beyond"

May 25, 2017 (Thu) | 12:00 PM -1:05 PM
James H. Clark Center, 318 Campus Drive, Seminar Room S360 : Stanford, CA

Lunch to be served at 12:00 PM; seminar begins at 12:15 PM. For centuries, humans have been seeking ways to unlock the mysteries of the body and to study its structures and organs. As modern technology provides advances in virtual and augmented reality, we see new opportunities to teach and learn by applying our expertise in medical imaging and computation. In this talk, we will cover our work over the last two and a half years using the mixed reality Microsoft HoloLens device as a platform for teaching anatomy and related topics. A special focus will be on the social nature of this technology, which allows for “shared” or multiuser experiences that provide an enhanced level of engagement with students. We see this kind of technology as transforming education across our campus.
