State of Astro-informatics
I had a glance through “Realizing the potential of astrostatistics and astroinformatics” by Eadie et al. (2019). While I do not feel qualified or informed to comment on the suggestions, I can summarize them quickly. There are three problems: Education: Most astronomers are not trained in code development resulting in maybe good but fragile code. Similarly, most computer scientists don’t have the astronomy background or connections. Funding: Grants for methodology improvement are scarce.
