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. VR is used to test signals in the human brain and 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. Medical education is simplified with VR, because medical workers can perform practice procedures without requiring a patient. VR also eases advancements in medical research, and it has been instrumental in making many recent breakthroughs in neuroscience.

As an emerging technology, AII feels VR 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 their results. Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results created by machine learning algorithms.
