Science has entered its fourth paradigm: after being observational, empirical, and theoretical, scientific discovery is now data-intensive. Anastasia (Natassa) Ailamaki, professor of computer sciences at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and winner of the Eppendorf European Young Investigator Award and a Sloan Research Fellowship, is pushing the limits of the speed of research and our capacity to deal with massive amounts of information. In this video of Ailamaki's lecture at the 2011 Falling Walls Conference, she presents her most interdisciplinary studies, which are currently empowering scientific teams to take on previously impossible experiments. Ailamaki's databases are being used in astronomy to determine the shape of the universe, in seismography to forecast the effects of earthquakes, and in brain simulations to aid in data visualization, analysis, and interpretation.
