Towards Tsunami-Resistant Chemometrics
Despite a fall from grace in recent years, chemometrics has a key role to play in the interpretation of mega-variate datasets. Here, I diagnose the problems that the field currently faces and propose that developing a theory of chemometrics offers a way forward.

The ever-increasing volume of information generated by hyphenated analytical platforms requires science – and scientists – to adapt or be drowned by the deluge of data. One development, actually a new science paradigm, that puts the analytical sciences in the driving seat of scientific research is so-called ‘data driven’ research: increasingly, analytical measurements are performed to generate hypotheses rather than to confirm them. However, to live up to the promise of data-driven research, powerful chemometric data analysis is essential and, at the moment, this is sadly lacking.
