Creativity in Digital Scholarship

Professor David De Roure1

Experimental methods have been used in research since at least the seventeenth century. In recent years, e-Research has given us new computational approaches and enabled in silico experimentation, and our community has been responsible for innovating and studying these new methods. In this talk we look at the trajectory of the experimental approach in the face of both increasing citizen engagement and increasing automation, and demonstrate the emerging practice of “experimental humanities”. Ultimately this is about the role of the human in the future of research.
