ACD/Labs is proud to support cutting-edge academic research, and every year hundreds of authors cite our software for its meaningful contributions to their novel findings. Here we’ve collected five of our favorite examples from 2018 (in chronological order), with a preference for open-access articles so that readers can investigate these intriguing applications of our software on their own. Read on!
Earlier this year, I had a conversation with Sophia Ktori, a reporter for Scientific Computing World, to talk about security issues in the age of R&D outsourcing. In the ensuing article, Sophia stated, “The R&D sector is increasingly turning to collaborative, partnered and outsourced projects to boost innovation, reduce costs and help expedite development.” While this is not an industry secret, this trend has led to a number of security concerns in our industry, and after looking back, I feel our discussion still rings true almost 10 months later.
Over the course of the last four months, we have been working with Scientific Computing to publish a series of articles on a subject that we feel very passionately about (and work very close with) at ACD/Labs – the externalization of scientific research and development (read the summary here). Essentially, we used this opportunity to address some key trends specific to this topic from various perspectives in the industry. Now that the series is complete, I wanted to give you an overview of the four articles to paint a broader picture of what we, and some of our customers and partners, are seeing today.
