Computing Research (cont)

Evaluation of computing research:
  • solves existing problem more effectively than before
  • solves a wider range of problems than before   (generalises)
Demonstrations of effectiveness follow two tracks ...

Theoretical, e.g.

  • analyse complexity, prove upper/lower bounds, ...
Experimental, e.g.
  • build prototype; measure performance on range of data
