Science 2.0 – Επιστημονική Ψηφιακή Επικοινωνία & Συνδεσιμότητα (παλιό υλικό)

Έχω την ισχυρή πεποίθηση πως οι συνθήκες είναι ώριμες. Πιστευώ πως η ήρθε η ώρα για την πλήρη ψηφιοποίηση της επικοινωνίας και διαλειτουργικότητας των επιστημονικών (κατ’ επέκταση και επαγγελματικών) κοινότητων και στην Ελλάδα (πέρα τις όποιες υπηρεσίες ψυχαγωγίας, πέρα από τις όποιες κοινότητες πληροφορικών υπάρχουν ήδη). Ήρθε η ώρα να δούμε στην Ελλάδα και paradigms Science 2.0, πέρα από τα πολυ-αναφερόμενα Health 2.0 και Medicine 2.0 .

Ένα τέτοιο paradigm ελπίζω πως θα είναι το στήσιμο και η διοργάνωση ετήσιου unconference για τον χώρο των Επιστημών Βιοϊατρικής, Βιοτεχνολογίας & ΒιοΜηχανικής/Πληροφορικής. Τι είναι όμως η Επιστήμη 2.0 aka Science 2.0?

Science 2.0 or research 2.0 takes its cue from the technologies of web 2.0. It creates conversations between researchers, lets them discuss the data and connect it with other data that might be relevant. Blogs, wikis and such, permit users to make information available in ways that create a conversation. Web 2.0 permits scientists to create digitized conversations that provide context for the data.

Ben Shneiderman, a computer science professor at the University of Maryland, argues that studying the interactions between people will be more important than studying the interactions between particles for finding solutions to bigger problems like disaster response, health care and energy sustainability. Because web 2.0 technologies make sure researchers and scientists can interact with each other through existing social networks, like facebook, twitter and linked in its a great way to enhance our science and find these solutions.

The central concept of Science 2.0 is the connectivity of researchers and the sharing of scientific material. In conventional science, only final results are published. The used data set, the detailed results and the necessary (software) tools are typically only available to people directly involved in the research. In contrast, the science 2.0 community actively encourages scientists to share those elements. Even more openness is strongly encouraged by the Science 2.0 community: Not only final results, but also intermediate findings should be shared and updated. The exact amount of information to be shared is entirely up to the researcher. Early feedback, fast information exchange and enhancement of the research due to involvement by interested third parties are mentioned by the proponents as the possible advantages of science 2.0.

An important element of science 2.0 is the Open Science (or Open Research) movement, which has the goal of increasing transparency of scientific research and wider sharing of its results both within and beyond the scientific community, e.g. by means of Open Data, Open Source and Open Access
