Can Scientific Discovery Be Automated? - The Atlantic
The Baconian method is rarely used today. It proved too laborious and extravagantly expensive; its technological applications were unclear. However, at the time the formalization of a scientific method marked a revolutionary advance. Before it, science was metaphysical, accessible only to a few learned men, mostly of noble birth. By rejecting the authority of the ancient Greeks and delineating the steps of discovery, Bacon created a blueprint that would allow anyone, regardless of background, to become a scientist.

The Philosophy Foundation - The Hypothesis Box - thinking about science
Critical thinking tool: Falsification - this is when someone tries not to prove a theory or hypothesis but to disprove it. For instance, if the hypothesis is ‘all birds fly’ then the best course of action when testing the hypothesis is not to look for examples that confirm that hypothesis but to seek out examples that would disconfirm it. If someone were to look only for examples of birds that fly, thereby confirming the hypothesis, then they would be falling foul of the fallacy of seeking only to confirm, sometimes known as confirmation bias. No amount of examples of birds that fly would truly prove the hypothesis; only one example, however, of a bird that does not fly would utterly refute it. This is known as falsification and is associated with the Austrian-British philosopher Karl Popper (1902-1994).

Research Debt
Achieving a research-level understanding of most topics is like climbing a mountain. Aspiring researchers must struggle to understand vast bodies of work that came before them, to learn techniques, and to gain intuition. Upon reaching the top, the new researcher begins doing novel work, throwing new stones onto the top of the mountain and making it a little taller for whoever comes next.
