Virtual Reality Act

Virtual Reality (VR) has proved beneficial to various aspects of our lives. Two psychologists explored using AI to help people overcome their phobias to unlock their talents. The main idea is to put the person in a virtual situation where he/she does things he/she did not know is capable of. They showed the efficiency of such an approach  by creating virtual realities to help Howie Mandel (AGT judge) confront his fears

The act revolves around the questions:

  1. Can a virtual reality outweigh a reality and help people overcome their phobias?
  2. How can VR control our minds and make us do what we believe we can’t?
