The Computing Research Association-Industry committee is delighted to announce an upcoming virtual roundtable on Computing Research in Industry on Wednesday, November 9th from 3:00-4:30 PM ET. Please register to attend here.
Computation is in the process of transforming all areas of a business, from the way work gets done to the products and services that are created. As a result, companies are increasingly investing in fundamental computer science research in support of their strategic goals.
In this roundtable, CRA-Industry will convene computing research partners across academia, industry, and government to look at what it means to do computing research in an industrial setting. Panelists will describe how research is conducted in their organizations, highlighting how problems are selected, how research is incentivized, and how results have internal and external impact. They will also discuss some of the key differences of doing research in an industrial setting compared with an academic setting, and share ideas for how universities might best prepare their students for a career in industrial research.
Confirmed panelists include Lisa Amini (IBM), Manuela Veloso (JPMC), Mounia Lalmas (Spotify), and Jaime Teevan (Microsoft). Read more about them here.
