As objects created by humans, a range of systems - from algorithm-driven search engines to long-standing vocabularies and canons - are shaped by cultural biases and can play a large and unrecognized role in both what we teach and how students lear

"Data Driven Discovery and Decision Making - A Paradigm Shift for Large Scale Experimental Science"

Kerstin Kleese van Dam
Director, Computational Science Initiative
Brookhaven National Laboratory

Abstract: New instrument technologies are enabling a new generation of in-situ and in-operando experiments, with extremely fine spatial and temporal resolution, that allows researchers to observe as physics, chemistry and biology are happening. These new methodologies go hand in hand with an exponential growth in data volumes and rates - petabyte scale data collections and terabyte/sec.

At the same time, scientists are pushing for a paradigm shift. As they can now observe processes in intricate details, they want to analyze, interpret and control those processes. Given the multitude of voluminous, heterogenous data streams involved in every single experiment, novel realtime, data-driven analysis and decision support approaches are needed to realize their vision.
