Virtual Humans Boost Mental Health Recovery

Benjamin Lok, a professor in the computer and information science and engineering department at the University of Florida, has been studying applications of virtual humans for two decades. His research has led to the creation of dozens of virtual characters that appear in 1,500 different programs around the world and wrack up over a million virtual patient interactions a month with his company, Shadow Health.

Now, Lok has grants from the National Institute of Health and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to employ and assess his virtual-human technology in the mental health domain.
