We all want to understand nature in more depth. An insatiable interest in the unknown has brought us never-ending improvements to our measurement techniques and has made it possible for us to obtain large quantities of high-dimensional data. Now, it is important to combine the fields of experimentation, measurement and information science. My research aims to create a new scientific field, high-dimensional data-driven science – that can efficiently derive new scientific knowledge from large amounts of high-dimensional data through close collaboration between various fields scientists and us, that isinformation scientists.
