Failomics: The Talk

A lecture tour is planned in various university centres. Dates will be posted as the talks happen.

The last lectures, that happened on the 8th of September 2012 at the Alliance Française of Singapore, have been recorded. If you would like to check them out for yourself, please fill the form at the bottom of the page and you will receive the link to the on-line version.

Reliquum: a video repository

For this project, scientists are invited to contribute their leftovers/rejections/failures through video link or in person. The collected Reliquum will be part of an on-going archive aimed at predicting the future of science. If you are interested, please drop me a note via the format the bottom of this page.

Educational videos

these educational videos explain all from growing your failure to taking care of it and what to do with it once you’ve got one.

You can see an illustrated synopsis of the videos in this gallery.

To obtain your own copy of these videos for educational purpose, please use the contact form below.

Collecting fresh failures

This project consists of shadowing a lab for a few months in order to collect their failures as they happen. Throughout our research, it has become evident that fresh failures will provide better data, since their shelf life is pretty limited.

Any laboratory interested in such a collaboration should contact me directly . Please  use the form at the bottom of this page.

Dissecting individual failures

Specific failures will be dissected to shed light on them and understand them better (Work in Progress)

Taxonomy of failure

Taxonomy consists of collecting new failures and classifying them. This is important to understand how they are generated , how they arise and what they give rise to. The incomplete tree of failures can be viewed below.

Patterns of Generation of Failures

Failures are generated while conducting science, at every stage of the scientific process. The pattern generation will be distinct from one individual to another or from one lab to another. These short animated illustrations demonstrate this variety.
