In this article, Martijn Roelandse introduces a “mixed-reality Hackathon” hosted by Springer Nature and dedicated to exploration of new uses of AR and VR in sciences. It’s very interesting to see that today, many 3D observations (made with confocal devices for example) are still seen on 2D screens! Immersive technologies could revolutionize it, maybe more fastly then we think. With the arrival of the fifth wave of computing, amazing techniques like artificial intelligence, blockchain and…"How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Can Revolutionize Science?"
Molecular biology produces huge amounts of data in the post-genomic era. This includes data describing metabolic mechanisms and pathways, structural genomic organization, patterns of regulatory regions; proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics. On the one hand, analysis of this data uses essentially the methods and concepts of computer science; on the other hand, the range of biological tasks solved by researchers determines the range and scope of the data. Integrative Bioinformatics is a new area of research…"From Virtual Reality to Immersive Analytics in Bioinformatics Burlingame, California, 30 Jan 2018"
