Scientific research aims to make a meaningful impact on human society. It’s necessary to understand the industrial demand and tackle problems in the real world. Integrated Human Practices helps us avoid isolated works. We continuously consult different people from academia and industry in every important step of our project.
Integrated Human Practices consist of three important steps:
- Idea formulation
- Project design and optimization
- Further extension and application
Here is our timeline of Integrated Human Practices
The main approach we used is the interview. During the conversation, we focus on three main questions:
- Is our idea of this project reasonable and does it have practical significance?
- What can we do for improvement?
- How can we develop a plan for an extension?
