Title: How will generative Al change scientific software?

Speaker: Elle OBrien PhD. University of Michigan

Abstract: Across biomedical research areas, scientists make and use code to facilitate data collection, generate data through computational simulations, investigate patterns in data through descriptive statistics and visualizations, and run statistical analyses to connect data to hypotheses. This talk will give an overview of an ongoing research program about the present and future of scientific software with an emphasis on applications to biomedical research. First, we will review findings from a recently-published study of how scientists adopt new software tools for data-intensive research, which sheds light on the pressures currently facing scientists who wish to expand their data analysis toolkit. Second, we will discuss new research that will look at which researchers are using generative AI tools for programming, how researchers reason about the validity of generated code, and how scientific practices and teamwork may be changing as a result.
