CANCELLED: Building trust in Computational Science: From Reproducible to Verifiable Computer-aided Research


The seminar by Dr. Konrad Hinsen is cancelled.

Venue: Triple room, Navet, SciLifeLab, BMC

Speaker: Dr. Konrad Hinsen, French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).

Abstract: To err is human. Scientists being human, they make mistakes. Since the beginning of organized scientific research, this fact of life has been taken into account by the introduction of verification and validation protocols. Computer-aided research has introduced new sources of mistakes that are so far insufficiently covered by these protocols: bugs in software, operator errors, and inappropriate use of scientific methods encoded in software. I will review the progress that has been made recently towards more trustworthy results, notably through reproducibility, and present a first approach to the next step: verifiable computational science.

Host: Ola Spjuth (ola.spjuth@farmbio.uu.se) and SciLifeLab Data Centre
