New Dimensions in Testimony
USC Shoah Foundation is developing New Dimensions in Testimony, a technology that enables people — now and far into the future—to have a “virtual conversation” with Holocaust survivors about their life experiences. The project integrates advanced filming techniques, specialized display technologies, and next-generation natural language processing to provide an intimate experience with Holocaust survivors who are uniquely qualified to offer personal reflections and answer direct questions about their firsthand experiences with the Holocaust. Since the pilot launch in 2015, USC Shoah Foundation has completed two evaluation studies of user experience of New Dimensions in Testimony at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. A third evaluation is currently in process at the United Stated Holocaust Memorial Museum.
