How can the work of research biologists be applied to virtual reality experiences? What if a social science researcher teamed up with a team of AR developers? What happens when you take virtual reality expertise and apply it to neuroscience problems?

The XR Brain Jam is an innovative, collaborative event that pairs researchers with XR game developers and digital creatives, and charges them with exploring the intersection of their domains together.

Teams will have worked together for an intense weekend from July 14th to the 16th to learn, discuss, explore, and create experiences that tackle questions like these. And when it’s all done, their work and lessons learned are shared for you to experience.

This year's research prompts are:

  • Diverse & Resilient Communities
    Research about strengthening human institutions and bonds across different intersections
  • Human Health and Wellness
    Research about the human body, how it works, and how we care for it
  • Sustainable Ecosystems
    Research about natural and human-made ecosystems
  • Artificial Intelligence
    Research about AI and its implications for society
  • Next-Gen Education
    Research about new ways of learning and teaching
