Research [Explained] science communication series

R

Practitioners of software engineering (that is, developers!) and the general public often accuse researchers of producing research that has little or no meaning for them. While there might be some research that has little or no use in “real life”, I am of the opinion that the issue is double-sided, but not much related to how much meaningful are research activities. The general public...
