About the Event
Meta-analysis is presently experiencing a revolution in methodology and scope, making many of our past meta-analyses obsolete. Previously, a single column of effect sizes may have been sufficient, but today journals expect full correlation matrices and multiple moderators, based on a scientific base that has often quadrupled in size since the last major update. Reviewed here are how new methods, including machine learning, are making this massive enterprise manageable, with entire fields being rapidly captured by a few institutions. Furthermore, the evolution of these meta-analytic techniques is extrapolated, with several imminent outcomes that will reshape not only science but the fundamentals of society itself. Essentially, we are well on the way towards building an exterior decision-making system, an exocortex, that replaces or augments our own.
