Last year, on the last day of the HIMSS'11 conference, Richard Boyd of Lockheed Martin Virtual World Labs shared his "Simulation Prescription"; showing how gaming and simulation technology have the potential to further revolutionize health care. One year later, OATV was able to catch up with Richard, now Director of Emerging and Disruptive Technologies (or as Aneesh Chopra calls him - "Disruptive Man"), on the developments that Lockheed Martin has taken to create a Virtual World Ecosystem Framework. The great news? Lockheed has taken a kernel approach, creating roles for what he hopes is going to become a massively parallel contribution system. AND it's going to be released with an open license with the goal of getting simulation everywhere on any modern web browser. Richard says that we can expect to see the software "kernel" made available midway through 2012, thanks in large part to some of Lockheed's federal partners.
