The Revolution of Science
Science is undergoing a revolution. It’s not just the results of the experiment that are changing, but the process is changing too. From peer review to funding, science is being transformed by technology and new ways of working.
This section will cover that how AI has changed the way scientists perform their experiments and what consequences these new changes have brought into this field of work.
Science has been a field that has been constantly evolving over the centuries. In the 1700s, it was about exploring, discovering and observing to find patterns. In the 1900s, it was about conducting experiments to test hypotheses. Now, in 2019, it is all about data and algorithms to simulate and predict changes in a system.
Scientists make discoveries by using a variety of methods such as experimentation, simulation and mathematical modeling. They try to figure out how phenomena work by making predictions from mathematical models or from observations or experiments.
In the future AI will be used more often in science as well as other fields because they enable scientists to analyze huge amounts of data much faster than humans could ever do on their own.
The scientific revolution was a time period where many thoughts and ideas of the Western world were transformed. Ideas of natural law, the universe as a machine, and the principles behind scientific classification were all radically changed.
All these changes have been made possible by humanism, which is a combination of Renaissance humanist thought with Christian beliefs. With new advancements in astronomy and mathematics, philosophers had to rethink their view on an immutable universe. The idea that everything in nature had been created by God was replaced with the belief that God set certain rules for the universe and then let it run according to those rules.
Books such as Galileo’s “Dialogue Concerning Two New Sciences” introduced how laws of physics govern our universe and how mathematics can be used to understand it.
The revolution of science is an age-old topic that has been debated for centuries. However, what is not discussed in the same breadth are the three main revolutions of science. The first being the Scientific Revolution, the second being the Technological Revolution, and finally the greatest revolution of them all – The Cognitive Revolution.
The Scientific Revolution was a time in history where people began to reject teachings from religious texts and instead turned to science to answer their questions about life in general, specifically in regards to how it works in their everyday lives. The Technological Revolution was one where technology started developing at a much faster pace than ever before and people were able to work more efficiently than they ever had before.
