“There is an application and adoption beyond that which most people default to right away, consumer use and gaming,” XR Association CEO Elizabeth Hyman shared with the Bipartisan Policy Center, a D.C.-based think tank discussing the use of immersive technology and the policy challenges and opportunities XR brings.
“It is a game-changer across many aspects of our economy,” she said, citing uses especially in human resource management such as training and upscaling employees and finding and securing quality talent, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
“Eighty-one percent of HR professionals use XR as a critical tool for learning and development outcomes,” Hyman said.
