Link: Closing the Loop: The Importance of External Engagement in Computer Science Research

April 2, 2018

Professor John Regehr's Closing the Loop: The Importance of External Engagement in Computer Science Research is an excellent article on the general spots where academic computer science can become disconnected with the real world and the engineering problems that are found there. Since I work in academia (and have read Greg Wilson for some time), this is an issue relatively near to my heart and I quite liked how he presents things in the article. It's a new framing of the issues, one that puts things in a clear way.

He's also written a followup post, Paths to External Engagement in Computer Science Research. This one is probably mostly of interest to people inside the sausage factory who want to interact with the outside, as opposed to people on the outside wondering why on earth academic computer science isn't more useful to them.
