In the fields of artificial intelligence and cognitive science, computational models of scientific discovery have been implemented in computer programs to support the making of scientific discoveries and investigate the nature of the creative processes of discovery. Over the past four decades, computational models and tools have been created to model many of the diverse theory-oriented tasks, and some experimental tasks, which scientists perform. The models span the full spectrum of scientific disciplines. They have not only given us a deeper insight into the richness of scientific activity and the psychology of creative problem solving, but also have been instrumental in making new scientific discoveries in their own right
