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.
