J. Tinsley Oden presented the prestigious 44th Shaw Lecture at North Carolina State University Nov. 6 to a crowd of more than 100 guests. Oden, associate vice president for research and director of ICES, spoke on the emergence of predictive science to forecast physical events. Using examples from the field of nanomanufacturing, he discussed how the principles and tools of predictive science are connected to the philosophical foundations of science, and how scientific knowledge can be obtained and interpreted in a statistical setting.
