第三十九期:Virtual Rehab想让罪犯重新做人

本期87君带来的初创公司,计划利用VR技术为囚犯提供矫正服务和改造计划,同时还提供切合实际的职业培训。 公司名称:Virtual Rehab 创始人:Raji Wahidy 产品信息:Virtual Rehab是一家成立于2016年的纽约初创,该公司正在让性侵犯犯人、家庭暴力犯、盗窃犯等罪犯利用VR技术,来进行工作技能上的训练。犯人们需要在VR的环境中完整一些实际的操作,例如给一台汽车更换电池。借助传感反馈技术,整个过程会更加逼真,例如犯人在汽车熄火但还没有完全冷却之后就急于更换电池,会感到一阵轻微的电击。Virtual Rehab还通过VR测试犯人对真实世界冲突场景的反应(正确做法应该是介入冲突,将冲突双方分开,或者打电话报警)。公司创始人认为,“许多犯人真的希望融入社会,我们应该帮助他们,而不是让他们一辈子被贴上罪犯的标签,不让他们工作,或者不让他们掌握工作技能。” 点评:VR已经渗透到各种领域,比如电影、游戏、教育和房地产。纽约初创Virtual Rehab如今又要把VR技术带入监狱。不过Virtual Rehab将面临巨大挑战,因为每个国家的国情和法律法规都不尽相同。但该设想一旦成行的话,将能为社会带来更多好处。毕竟此前有数据显示(美国),在刑满释放的三个犯人中,有两个会在三年内再次入狱,75%的犯人会在五年内再次犯罪。如果VR技术能降低惯犯与累犯率,显然会是非常有益的。   Source: 87870 Share This:
