Pro-Innovation Bias

Aug. 28, 2017 4:40 am

Coupled with automation bias this one is a real doozy.

Pro-innovation bias means that scientists equate new with sexy. Even when those new methods are themselves poorly understood, and there are little data to support their adoption into the mainstream. This is true whether we are talking about a new piece of technology, a new piece of kit, a new analytical method, a new imaging device, a new piece of software, a new algorithm.

Anything new.

Neophilia drives poorly understood methods into mainstream science.
