Doing Research

The process is an elaboration of "observe/hypothesis/test":
  • understand the broad topic area
  • establish an evaluation framework (issues, metrics)
  • look at what others have done and evaluate
  • find an area of "weakness" in existing work
  • devise a (better) solution
  • evaluate the effectiveness of the solution
Hint: document all parts of this process as they are done.
