Title: Data Driven Discovery In the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences
Lead Author: Poole, Marshall S
Abstract: With the advent of petascale computing, the social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences have an opportunity to transform their research and move away from the limits imposed upon them by the current state of the art in technology. Central to this paradigmatic shift, however, is the need for SBE researchers to confront the Grand Challenge question, How can the social, behavioral, and economic sciences harness vast stores of digital data for scientific inquiry? This white paper proposes the development of a new type of inquiry, Data Driven Discovery (D3), which will integrate the capacity to collect and analyze huge digital datasets, analytics to uncover patterns and relationships, and rigorous theory. Central to this program is the need to develop new models for how to manage and analyze the large amounts of data available to researchers. Advancements are proposed for acquiring data, analytics, and conduct of research to allow scholars to address complex issues that currently challenge research and that will allow them to make transformational discoveries in their research and scholarship.
