Virtual reality (VR) is a technology that opened many doors for researchers and entrepreneurs. There are countless examples of scientists using this new technology either to develop it further or to experiment with various attempts at its application. Science News brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Virtual and augmented reality: Researchers pioneer process to stack micro-LEDs.”

One of the biggest contributions of VR to modern science is in the field of medical research. We use VR to test certain abilities of the human brain or to help in the treatment of mental and physical conditions. There are many examples of VR simulations used in the context of education, especially in the field of medical treatment. Education is possible, because this technology can help medical workers practice certain procedures without a need to work on a living patient or real tissue. Aside from the advancements in medical research VR also helped make many breakthroughs in neuroscience.

This emerging technology possesses great potential. Most organizations have little knowledge on how emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), VR, and machine learning systems make decisions or how to apply the results. Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results created by machine learning algorithms.
