An interview with Stanford’s Jeremy Bailenson, exploring the potential of a subject everyone is talking about, but few understand.

The “alternative” nature of alternative investing refers to more than just the asset classes involved. A strain of idealism can be detected within it – suggesting that commerce and finance may at times be a tool to advance the greater good.

The work of Jeremy Bailenson at Stanford University’s Woods Institute for the Environment, where he is a Senior Fellow, explores this question. Part scholar, part entrepreneur, Bailenson has spent two decades establishing Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab in Palo Alto, Calif., and his own credentials as a global expert on virtual reality (VR) and its possibilities as a tool for training and learning.
