He (Ivan Schuller,Department of Physics, UCSD) said his main concern with application-driven science is that it claims something is useful or is likely to show up in the future, without having enough information to accurately predict how. He said he doesn’t want the national disappointment of superconductors to resurface in nanotechnology.
He said there is a much greater promise in pursuing basic science and seeing where it goes. The history of science consistently supports the accidental discovery approach, he said.
