Solving the immense problems of the 21st century will require ambitious research teams skilled at producing practical solutions and foundational theories simultaneously. The solutions need to be 'Applied and Basic Combined' (the ABC principle). The research teams can then deliver high-impact outcomes by blending 'Science, Engineering and Design Thinking' (the SED principle), which encourages use of the methods from all three disciplines. These guiding principles (ABC and SED) aim to replace Vannevar Bush’s flawed linear model from 1945 that has misled researchers for over 70 years.

In this seminar, Professor Shneiderman will discuss how these new guiding principles will enable students, researchers, academic leaders and government policymakers to accelerate discovery and innovation.
