The scientific method will be dead soon.
I’ve been grappling with this issue as I’ve been thinking about the platform we’re building. It was at one time so confusing – all of these medical data models constructed years ago – ICPC-2, ICD-9, ICD-10, soon ICD-11, and the list goes on.
Does Google have all of these ultra rigid database models to ensure it finds what you need 99% of the time within the first two pages? Obviously the answer is no. However, Google has simply figured out how to mathematically analyze a mishmash of “meaningless” data into super-relevant relationships.
It’s a new era folks and a new dawn of science is emerging by following a company that makes billions by associating ads with “meaningless” content.
