The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy works to ensure that technology is effectively applied to some of society's toughest and most pressing challenges. This talk will address the ways the Administration sees virtual reality as a new tool to approaching a number of significant issues, and explore efforts by the Administration to utilize leading entertainment technology. In areas like education, VR must also help reduce the digital divide among wealthy and poor rather than expand it. This talk will call for VR as a force for good, and how developers can help achieve that goal.
Attendees will learn how they can apply their skills as developers to address complex social challenges and approach VR with equity and inclusion in mind. Attendees will also learn about the President's initiatives, such as Computer Science for All, which they can get involved in.
