Abstract [en]: This paper is a manifesto. It argues that:
  • Science is experiencing an unprecedented explosion in the amount of available data.
  • Traditional data analysis methods cannot deal with this increased quantity of data.
  • There is therefore an urgent need to automate the process of refining scientific data into scientific knowledge.
  • Inductive logic programming (ILP) is the data analysis framework best suited for this task.

We describe an example of using ILP to analyse a large and complex bioinformatic database which produced unexpected and interesting scientific results. We then point a possible way forward to integrating machine learning with scientific databases to form intelligent inductive databases.
