The Economist writes:
Some 34 of the world’s leading biologists, physicists, chemists, Earth scientists and computer scientists, led by Stephen Emmott, of Microsoft Research in Cambridge, Britain, have spent the past eight months trying to understand how future developments in computing science might influence science as a whole.

Indeed, computer science produces an orderly, formal framework and exploratory apparatus for other sciences, according to George Djorgovski, an astrophysicist at the California Institute of Technology.
