service-oriented science

leave a comment »

Full Article: ScienceMag: “Service-oriented science has the potential to increase individual and collective scientific productivity by making powerful information tools available to all, and thus enabling the widespread automation of data analysis and computation. Ultimately, we can imagine a future in which a community’s shared understanding is no longer documented exclusively in the scientific literature but is documented also in the various databases and programs that represent—and automatically maintain and evolve—a collective knowledge base.”
