AI, Open Source Arguments All in One Article

This article in The Guardian is interesting for a number of reasons.  For one thing, it provides some further detail on the ongoing battle between scholars and companies regarding the open-sourcing of publications (making the journals free to the public as opposed to subscription based).  The article also hints at the AI capabilities of new data mining algorithms.  However, I was most interested (awestruck) by this sentence in the article, "The scale of new information in modern science is staggering: more than 1.5m scholarly articles are published every year and the volume of data doubles every three years."  Those are truly amazing numbers.

  1. 1,500,000 is a lot of articles. It's still fascinating all the things we don't know even given this number.

  2. Well a lot comes of articles reference articles that come before it. Thought 1.500.00 articles seem like an obscene amount.

    The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
