Stanford Ocean Acidification Experience Virtual Reality (VR) SimulationStanford Virtual Human Interaction Laboratory

Climate conditions, such as the "2C threshold" and "acidification of the oceans", do not diminish emotions. But the effects of these phenomena can easily be overcome: hundreds of millions of people lost their lives next year 11 years due to climate change. About 75% of people could die deadly heat waves up to 2100 years. Stanford researchers have set Virtual Reality (VR) as an effective tool to make the abstract climate threat more visceral and personal, before the effects of climate change become life-threatening visceral and personal. Today a magazine issued a document Borders in psychology shows how VR is the technological pressure at the center of empathy, which forces us to act before it's too late.

Study

Researchers used VR-grade tools and Stanford Ocean Acidification Experience (SOAE) VR simulations in 4 different experiments. Among the participants were 270 pupils in high school, undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as adults at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

SOAE illustrates the impact of climate change on our marine ecosystems. The simulation is publicly available for download free of charge. You can choose whether to be a diver's avatar or be a pink coral piece that lives in your best life underwater reef. This is until you and all your colored underwater friends begin to die massively. The simulation time lacks the underwater holocaust to a spectacular interval. In one version, the voice of the narrator guides you to:

Look at the right palm. Note how acidity is corroded in the seaweed shell. Take a moment to walk around and look for sea snails in the area. Could not find anyone? This is because there are no live sea snails. They can not survive in this environment. The acidification of oceans will have a major impact on all hounded species, including oysters, clays, corals and some types of plankton. Without these species, the entire food chain may collapse. "

Results

Participants increase the test results for more than 100% acidification of oceans after simulation. Ocean acidification information was tested and preservation appeared more than three weeks later. The more time that participants participated in the simulation, the more information they kept. & Nbsp;

Postgraduate researcher Geraldine Fauville says the team is working on the "act now" simulation element, exploring "concrete actions that individuals can think and implement in their daily lives." In marketing science, this is the most important step in selling a message. Climate scientists and VR engineers could benefit from recruiting Don Draper's marketing science to convince humanity to click on the "Activate Now!" Button. & Nbsp;

Unpredictable Finder

"In VR history, we have talked a lot about how to use it for education," says James Bailenson, cognitive psychologist, founder and co-author of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab of Stanford University. He claims that the study shows that "you can successfully install the VR curriculum. People are enjoying it. They learn. There is no negative effect." This conclusion was expected. Interestingly and unexpectedly, there were reasons why the VR seemed to increase knowledge and empathy. "In two of the four studies in this paper, we can predict how many people care about the environment and how much they want to know more about the environment, based on how much they move in the body in the simulation." In VR studies, this is referred to as the "incarnate cognitive", and Bailenson believes that this is the mechanism that triggers the resonance of the message. "Moving your body here is a covert ploy and what makes VR special," says Bailenson, while pointing out that the findings are correlated, not necessarily causally related.

From Stanford paper: "Participants who explored more virtual space created deeper cognitive associations with the content of science."

Today's study comes with unrelated heel heels, published last month by the Nobel Prize winner and his team at the Max Planck Institute in Germany, that thinking uses a brain navigation system and that knowledge is organized spatially.

Affects

Participants reported a generally positive VR experience. "It's pretty cool, quite responsive," says 18-year-old Cameron Chapman. "I definitely felt I'm underwater."

"It was more realistic than I was expecting," says Alexa Levison, a colleague of senior senior grades. "I am a visual student. The acidification of the ocean is different than hearing it."

A similar enthusiasm was observed at the Tribeca Film Festival:

Jane Rosenthal is leading this event when it's the VR wing of the festival, and it has dozens of booths where you can go and go to VR, "says & nbsp;Bailenson "The festival is open for about a week. It is open from late morning till evening. We had an adult line, sometimes up to 100 people. They wait an hour, sometimes two hours to get a good knowledge of chemistry. "

Team demoed by SOAE Senator Sheldon Whitehouse from Rhode Island, Kongresteres Suzanne Bonamici from Oregon and former Senator Blanche Lincoln from Arkansas. "This simulation plentifully reflects the damage that carbon contamination brings to our oceans," Whitehouse said after the Capitol Hill event, organized by the non-profit environmental group Ocean Conservancy. "I appreciate Stanford's Ocean Acidification experience to draw attention to the dangers our oceans face and what we need to do to protect them."

VR does not affect the cruel commitment to abandon climate:

"I was fortunate enough that a US Congressman came to the lab and really did an ocean souring experience," Bailenson says the congressman is a vocal dictator of climate change. "He served in our military astonishing ways. He was in the lab and was worthy. He did two dozen demos where he really they did it. He not only survived the movement. "The congressman collaborated and engaged, but when Bailenson asked for feedback on VR education on climate change, his response was as depressing as a corrosive snail:

Let me get that right, "Bailenson discusses." I'm paraphrasing. I have not recorded it, so I do not have a direct quote. The general notion of what he said is you think that you will introduce me to science. I think that you introduce what we call democratic science. This is the capital of D democratic. This means that you choose a science that could resonate with the Democrats, but it is not universal. I have not heard it yet. I heard it since then, because I obviously looked at it. It was about an equally worrying moment when I was at work for some time. Stanford Ocean Acidification Experience has been intensely tested by the number of scientists, our excellent colleagues, [marine scientists] Kristy Kroeker and Fio Micheli. All of this is based on their work, in which every detail, from the centimeters of this snail now comes from this coral species, all of these details, "Bailenson Stammers". "We have spent a lot of time and effort and only believe that polarization is high enough to make marine science a democratic one, it was not a big point."

Congressman Bailenson advised on what he could do otherwise to persuade people about climate change and its consequences.

He was cautious not to access the scientific details of climate change models. Because I do not think that I should have played things that he was comfortable talking about. He talked about a climate change policy debate that always affects his constituents. In its area fracking is very large and natural gas is very large. He urged me to try to carry out Environmental Protection VR reports in order to clearly demonstrate how this does not run counter to economic goals. "

The second recommendation was what Bailenson had heard before discussing how climate change is affected by changes in migration patterns and how it affects things like hunting season. "In general, the conversation was such that, at the end of the day, he only gave up what we have created as a democratic science," who was our country, a very prominent legislator, who really tried to try it.

Using VR, Bailenson succeeded in educating officials in the Palau Island nation about the negative environmental impact. Bailenson wrote about being able to read about his work, which affects legislatures on preservation National Geographic.
