### How Mathematical Discoveries are Made

In one of my previous articles, you can learn the process about how discoveries are made by research scientists, from exploratory analysis, testing, simulations, data science guesswork, all the way to the discovery of a new theory and state-of-the-art statistical modeling,including new, fundamental mathematical/statistical equations.

### Local Causal Discovery of Direct Causes and Effects

We focus on the discovery and identification of direct causes and effects of a target variable in a causal network. State-of-the-art algorithms generally need to find the global causal structures in the form of complete partial directed acyclic graphs in order to identify the direct causes and effects of a target variable. While these algorithms are effective, it is often unnecessary and wasteful to find the global structures when we are only interested in one target variable (such as class labels). We propose a new local causal discovery algorithm, called Causal Markov Blanket (CMB), to identify the direct causes and effects of a target variable based on Markov Blanket Discovery. CMB is designed to conduct causal discovery among multiple variables, but focuses only on finding causal relationships between a specific target variable and other variables.

### Discovery has BIG plans

Discovery Channel took the wraps off 20 new series and 22 returning series on its 2016-2017 primetime programming slate today, including target launches two new scripted efforts: its miniseries "Harley And The Davidsons" and "Manifesto," the previously announced project about the Unibomber investigation from Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti's Trigger Street. New series include the Deadliest Catch spinoff "Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove," "Sacred Steel" and the globe-trotting survivalcompetition series "The Wheel." Also in the mix is "Cooper's Treasure," a documentary about the quest to find a secret treasure based on the research of astronaut Gordon Cooper. The network also announced the launch of "Discovery Impact," an anthology series that will focus on man's impact on the environment, which comes on the heels of the success of the network's global bow of its documentary "Racing Extinction." In addition, it unveiled Seeker, a video network with more than 250 videos premiering every month with socially driven content targeting millennials.

### Discoveries and Anti-Discoveries on the Web of Argument and Data

Too many scientific arguments in peer-reviewed articles are backed by flawed or inadequate data. Articles can now be annotated in pre- or post-publication review using models such as W3C Open Annotation, to produce multipolar argumentation networks as an overlay on Web documents. This would assist in improving scientific reproducibility by integrating discussion and analysis of doubtful results.
