Title Future of Scientific Knowledge Discovery in Open Networked Environments. Summary of a Workshop.
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 200p
Personal Author P. F. Uhlir
Abstract Digital technologies and networks are now part of everyday work in the sciences, and have enhanced access to and use of scientific data, information, and literature significantly. They offer the promise of accelerating the discovery and communication of knowledge, both within the scientific community and in the broader society, as scientific data and information are made openly available online. The phrase scientific knowledge discovery in open networked environments is subject to many definitions. For purposes of this project, the focus was on computer-mediated or computational scientific knowledge discovery, taken broadly as any research processes enabled by digital computing technologies. Such technologies may include data mining, information retrieval and extraction, artificial intelligence, distributed grid computing, and others. These technological capabilities support computer-mediated knowledge discovery, which some believe is a new paradigm in the conduct of research.
