July CACM: Google's Hybrid Approach to Research

http://j.mp/MHnvr0  (CACM)

  "In this viewpoint, we describe how we organize computer science
   research at Google. We focus on how we integrate research and
   development and discuss the benefits and risks of our approach. The
   challenge in organizing R&D is great because CS is an increasingly
   broad and diverse field. It combines aspects of mathematical
   reasoning, engineering methodology, and the empirical approaches of
   the scientific method. The empirical components are clearly on the
   upswing, in part because the computer systems we construct have become
   so large that analytic techniques cannot properly describe their
   properties, because the systems now dynamically adjust to the
   difficult-to-predict needs of a diverse user community, and because
   the systems can learn from vast datasets and large numbers of
   interactive sessions that provide continuous feedback."
