New Nursing-Engineering collab to develop extended-reality learning tools
TDAI core faculty Mike Rayo, assistant professor of integrated systems engineering, is leading the engineering component of a new College of Engineering/College of Nursing collaboration that will use extended reality (XR), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to build immersive, data-driven learning experiences for nursing students and practicing nurses.
The project, entitled Disrupting Nursing Education with XR, AI and ML, has received a three-year, $1.5M grant from the American Nurses Foundation, led by Michael Ackerman, director of the College of Nursing's Center for Healthcare Innovation and Leadership.
“This initiative is Ohio State in a nutshell. Two seemingly separate disciplines collaborating and converging to improve the human experience,” said Ayanna Howard, PhD, dean of the College of Engineering.
