Psychological science has a crucial role to play in addressing the challenges facing humanity. Its vast and rapidly growing body of evidence can inform the development of interventions to improve well-being, but a lack of consistent and shared terminology hampers evidence integration and knowledge advancement. ‘Ontologies’ provide a shared scientific vocabulary for reporting research findings, readable by both humans and computers, enabling automated knowledge synthesis, outcome prediction, and inference across contexts. In her talk, Michie presents the “Behaviour Change Intervention Ontology,” which has the potential to dramatically enhance evidence integration and knowledge development using hybrid human-computer systems, thereby accelerating scientific advancements.
