Mursion, a virtual reality training platform blending artificial intelligence with live human interaction, was awarded six medals at the 2019 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in Technology, including three Gold Medals: “Best Advance in Augmented and Virtual Reality,” “Best Advance for Technology in Virtual-Classroom or Conferencing Technology,” and “Best Advance in Technology for Testing and Learning Evaluation.”
Mursion was also recognized with two Silver Medals (“Best Advance in Emerging Learning Technology” and “Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology”), as well as one Bronze Medal (“Best Advance in Gaming or Simulation Technology”). These honors reflect Mursion’s commitment to driving transformative human skills practice and sustained behavioral change in partnership with clients across industries.
“Mursion’s training software is the only VR platform that combines the reasoning of human intelligence with components of computational intelligence to create compelling and plausible simulation events,” said Mursion CEO Mark Atkinson. “We are honored to be recognized by the Brandon Hall Group for our human-in-the-loop approach to VR simulation.”
“Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are at the forefront of technology innovation. Our program evaluates not just the solution itself, but the benefit to the human capital management function, the business, and the customer. That is the ultimate differentiator – whether the technology has a positive business impact. Technology Award winners pass that test with flying colors,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.
“An Excellence Award also validates the vision of the technology development team, the wisdom of the company’s investment in the solution, and the value the technology brings to the end-user,” said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group.
