  2. 2. Six Tools of Research The library and its resources Computer technology Measurement Statistics 6. The Language Human Mind 1-1
  3. 3. Reasoning Tools for Research •Critical Thinking • Deductive Logic • Inductive Reasoning • The Scientific Method • Theory Building 1-2
  4. 4. Critical Thinking Components of Critical Thinking: - verbal reasoning - argument analysis - decision making - critical analysis of prior research 1-3 Ask Questions….: -What does it mean ? -What does it mean to others? - What are examples / use-cases? - How does this apply to real life? - and so on.
  5. 5. Deductive Logic Given one or more premises which is taken to be true. Conclusion or decision is being made logically from this premises. 1-4
  6. 6. Inductive Reasoning reasoning from detailed facts to general principles. Also called “bottom up” reasoning. 1-5
  7. 7. Inductive vs Deductive Reasoning 1-6
  8. 8. The Scientific Method: The scientific method is a set of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge 1-7
  9. 9. Theory Building Theory Building is people making sense of the world around them. We all do it all the time. Kids build theory about where they come from. 1-8
  10. 10. Theory Building Continuing… What it takes to build a theory? 1-9 Steps: 1. Observe 2. Organize 3. Find Co-relation 4. Create hypothesis 5. Justify Hypothesis 6. Build Model
  11. 11. Human Mind as Tools of Research 1-10 Eventually, it is you who decide. Can We make a system to make automatic decision (and correct one) ? What about reasoning under uncertainty?
  12. 12. Collaboration “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” 1-11 Who to Collaborate with? - betn Individuals - betn Groups - Industry vs Institution - and so on… What is collaboration? Example: -IBM University Research and Collaboration -Through Intern, Fellowship, grant etc.
  13. 13. How to Collaborate as a PhD Student 1-12 Be open -Discuss what you are doing and what others doing. -Participation in discussion groups Find Collaborator -Collaboration with Friends or Lab-mates -Collaboration with Friends at other university Keep looking -Internship/ Fellowship -Industry leader / researcher Maintain Network -ResearchGate -LinkedIn Any Idea ?
  14. 14. Exploring Research in Your Field 1-13 Keeping an eye on -Conferences / Workshops -Industry work -Other researchers -Industry Whitepapers -Blogs / Magazine
