Seminar

Science in an Exponential World

Alexander Szalay
Department of Physics and Astronomy, Johns Hopkins University

Scientific data is doubling every year. As a result, new paradigms are emerging in every area of modern science. Almost every aspect of the scientific method is undergoing fundamental changes. The talk will discuss the challenges, and discuss new approaches in dealing with these enormous data sets of today and tomorrow, using some examples of astrophysics and space science. The emergence of pervasive computing -- small sensors everywhere - is already impacting not only how we do science but our everyday lives. The engineering principles behind pervasive computing are finding their ways into corpora
