Biblio (120) The fourth paradigm of science

Biblio 120

So, I choose a large book by Microsoft, and I throw it to you, and it’s done… Well, it’s not just that. Authors say that science has evolved until now as a result of three paradigms:

  • 1- Experimentation
  • 2- Theory (since the XVIIth century)
  • 3- Calculation and simulation (since the second half of the XXth century)

The massive use of big data would deliver that fourth paradigm. As the book is from 2009, we can now see it with some perspective.
