eScience

Ed Lazowska's elements of eScience:
  • Sensors 
  • Networking 
  • Visualization 
  • Databases 
  • Data mining 
  • Machine learning
eScience is what happens when scalable mass produced computing infrastructure is applied to scientific problems. It's not about the computation, it's about the data.
...which reminds me of a Peter Karp paper.
