The Automatic Scientist will be a Data System


S. Idreos, “The Automatic Scientist will be a Data System,” in Biennial Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research (CIDR), 2017.


For thousands of years science happens in a rather manual way. Mathematics, engineering and computer science provide the means to automate some of the laborious tasks that have to do with computation, data collection and management, and to some degree predictability. As scientific fields grow more mature, though, and scientists over-specialize a new problem appears that has to do with the core of the scientific process rather with the supporting steps. It becomes increasingly harder to be aware of all research concepts and techniques that may apply to a given problem.
