Summary of the report: Data have fundamentally changed our daily lives. Data now can be bought and sold, and soon data analytics will become commodity as well. Data have significantly challenged every discipline to revisit its research roadmap to stay competitive. This talk will point out the paradigm shift of bibliometrics (or science of science in a broader way) and illustrate some potential interesting research directions that are data-driven. It will showcase some concrete researches on data-driven discovery and data-driven decision making.
