the science and the scientists of tomorrow

Professor Stephen Emmott

Group Director & Chief Scientist

External Research Office

Microsoft Research


transformation of academia & business underway


1. ‘new kind of science’


2. relationship between basic research & innovation


ace to win ‘next wave’ of science-based innovation


ace will be won by the scientists of tomorrow


1: the science


a computational revolution : ‘new kind of science’


computational biology


molecular biology

genomics

proteomics

systems biology

programming the cell


iological computation


‘classical’ computing just subset of what’s possible

non-classical computing occurs in nature

3.5Bn years of natures own R&D


computational chemistry

computational physics

computational earth science

computational engineering


2: the scientists


computational scientists =

new skills, new tools, new problems


scientifically AND computationally excellent


problem 1: decline in interest in science


problem 2: failures in science pre-university


problem 3: complexity & volume of data


obot scientists?


finale: education, science & innovation


tomorrow’s scientists needed to underpin ‘next wave’

Europe must train world-leading intellectual capital


make science exciting

improve training of scientists

better recognise & reward scientists


develop new forms of collaborations
