Reinventing Discovery : The New Era of Networked Science Paperback / softback

Part of the Princeton Science Library series


How the internet and powerful online tools are democratizing and accelerating scientific discoveryReinventing Discovery argues that we are living at the dawn of the most dramatic change in science in more than three hundred years.

This change is being driven by powerful cognitive tools, enabled by the internet, which are greatly accelerating scientific discovery.

There are many books about how the internet is changing business, the workplace, or government.

But this is the first book about something much more fundamental: how the internet is transforming our collective intelligence and our understanding of the world.

From the collaborative mathematicians of the Polymath Project to the amateur astronomers of Galaxy Zoo, Reinventing Discovery tells the exciting story of the unprecedented new era in networked science.

It will interest anyone who wants to learn about how the online world is revolutionizing scientific discovery-and why the revolution is just beginning.
