Avatar System Could Help With Public Speaking & Social Anxiety
A voice and facial recognition software can simulate real conversations and provide feedback.
Jerry Seinfeld has a famous joke that goes as follows:
According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.
What isn’t a joke is that the National Institute of Mental Health estimates that social phobias affect roughly 15 million adults in the U.S. But for those with public speaking and social interaction fears, it’s difficult to practice and improve their skills in front of others – until now.
