A Revolution in Open Science: Open Data and the Role of Libraries by Geoffrey Boulton

 

  • This talk was given by Prof. Geoffrey Boulton of the University of Edinburgh at LIBER’s 42nd annual conference in Munich. Here is a brief summary: “The data storm that has been unleashed by novel means of data acquisition, manipulation and their instantaneous communication have posed both great challenges and opportunities for science. The challenge is to maintain scientific self-correction, which depends on concurrent publication of concepts and the underlying evidence. The opportunity is to exploit massive and complex data volumes in creating new knowledge. Both are non-trivial tasks. The former requires ‘intelligent openness‘.”
