Data Centric Engineering: Fact or Fiction

Lord Kelvin is attributed to stating that “To Measure is to Know”. The role of empirical observation and data has always been core to the engineering sciences. So what does Data Centric Engineering actually mean? Is this yet another bandwagon of hype or is there substance behind the term? This talk will make a case for the adoption of a Statistical Data Centric approach to the Engineering Sciences and associated professions across all sectors.
