  17. 17. TD1210: Better understanding the dynamics of science – the rise and fall of scientific fields Paris, David Chavalarias “.. introduce an automated method for the bottom-up reconstruction of the cognitive evolution of science, based on big-data issued from digital libraries …sketches a prototypical life cycle of the scientific fields: an increase of their cohesion after their emergence, the renewal of their conceptual background through branching or merging events, before decaying when their density is getting too low. Chavalarias, D., & Cointet, J.-P. (2013). Phylomemetic patterns in science evolution--the rise and fall of scientific fields. PloS One, 8(2), e54847. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0054847 Science/knowledge dynamics
  18. 18. TD1210: Better understanding the dynamics of science – diversification and merging of fields Martin Rosvall “.. With increasingly available data, networks and clustering tools have become important methods used to comprehend instances of these large-scale structures. But blind to the difference between noise and trends in the data, these tools alone must fail when used to study change. Only if we can assign significance to the partition of single networks can we distinguish structural changes from fluctuations and assess how much confidence we should have in the changes.” Rosvall, M., & Bergstrom, C.

  32. 32. Encourage field mobility, it supports interdisciplinarity + job opportunities. This increases the connectivity between fields but be aware: schematic, undirected, field mobility, e.g. regular pattern of job hopping, may act as random diffusion – destroying differentiation Support the search for the BEST (most attractive) BUT be aware: too much imitation leads to fashion waves which finally can also destroy a system Encourage scientific school formation, this enhances the attractivity of a field BUT be aware: big schools can work like a “dominant” design and blocking further development Possible science policy recommendation
  33. 33. “The more ‘credible’ predictions are, the more likely they are to not happen” (Peter Allen) Best models are not “problem solvers” they are “trouble makers” Thank you very much for your attention!
