David De Roure's Inaugural Lecture on 28th October at Oxford e-Research Centre, University of Oxford, UK
10 years ago we saw a few early adopters of e-Science technology; now we see acceleration of research through broader adoption and sharing of tools, techniques and artefacts, both for 'big science' and the 'long tail scientist'.
Will this incremental trend continue or are we seeing glimpses of a phase change ahead, where researchers harness these emerging digital capabilities to address research questions in ways that simply were not possible before?
This talk will describe three generations of e-Research, using the myExperiment social website as a lens to glimpse future research practice, and focusing on a web-scale computational musicology project as an illustration of 3rd generation thinking.
