Holocaust Survivors Stories as Holograms
USC's Shoah Foundation, an institute founded by Steven Spielberg, created a new technology that brings intergenerational storytelling and the oral tradition to preserve the Holocaust survivor testimony.
New Dimensions in Testimony lets anyone sit down and ask questions to a hologram of a Holocaust survivor, and it has the feel of a normal conversation. Each subject was interviewed for a week and asked over 5000 questions. Voice recognition software breaks down the questions and offers up an answer.
