Distinguished Lecture Series: On being an applied computer scientist

Speaker's abstract: A computer science researcher who seeks to apply technological solutions to situations in the everyday world faces several challenges. The majority of these challenges stem from the balancing act between the need as researchers to advance knowledge in an academic discipline and the desire to make (or be perceived as making) a contribution in the application domain. In this talk, I will describe, through a set of examples, how this balancing act can play out in the career of a computer scientist.
