Prof. Uday Khedker, Dept. of CSE, IIT Bombay
Date & Time: October 11, 2017 18:00
Venue: F C Kohli Auditorium, 1st Floor, CSE, KR Bldg.
There is some element of mystery about research in the minds of the people who have not been involved in it. Those who do research are in a habit of continuously evaluating their work on an implicit understanding of what they believe to be good research. However, for many of them, research is a way of life so obvious that they are unable to articulate it from the view point of novices. This talk is an outcome of a series of such introspections and the discussions resulting from them. It attempts to explicate the implicit understandings of what research is and tries to position it in the larger context of intellectually stimulating and satisfying technical career. In particular, it describes the pre-requisites of research, the pains and pleasures of the process of research, and discusses the personal factors influencing research. It also touches upon research in the industrial context. The talk presents general concepts using a series of views illustrated by examples taken from commonly celebrated success stories in science and engineering. Hence the talk is accessible to a wide audience.
