Les riches enseignements des expériences ratées

Lors dʹune découverte scientifique, seuls les résultats de lʹexpérience réussie sont publiés. Or, pour arriver à une découverte scientifique publiable, il faut souvent beaucoup dʹéchecs et dʹintuitions. Des chercheurs de lʹEcole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) ont développé une méthode pour récolter toutes ces tentatives ratées rendues invisibles et ces intuitions volatilisées pour les valoriser.

On en parle avec Berend Smit, chef du Laboratoire de simulation moléculaire de l'EPFL, interrogé par Anne Baecher.
