Title: Synthesis and Cyberinfrastructure for SBE Research
Lead Author: Kintigh, Keith W
Abstract: Insights from the social and behavioral sciences, as well as from economics, are increasingly recognized as essential components of solutions to an enormous range of problems faced by the United States. There is an increasing need for social scientists to integrate their understandings with those of life and physical scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and policy makers to achieve transformative understandings of the ways in which we can use diverse and complex data to address problems of coupled social and natural systems. NSF has invested heavily in cyberinfrastructure in the natural sciences. For social science to deliver effective, policy-relevant knowledge, substantial investments in social science information infrastructures are essential. Many cyberinfrastructure challenges faced by social science are qualitatively different than those of the natural sciences, because of the diversity and complexity of our data. While we can leverage cyberinfrastructure investments in other domains, we cannot just piggyback on them. We need sustained investments in social science synthesis and cyberinfrastructure, and social science-driven research on the integration of social and natural science data in the investigations of coupled social and natural systems. The problems are too important and the potential payoffs too large to delay.
