Designing for dystopia: software engineering research for the post-apocalypse
SIGSOFT FSE, pp. 924-927, 2016.
Software engineering researchers have a tendency to be optimistic about the future. Though useful, optimism bias bolsters unrealistic expectations towards desirable outcomes. We argue that explicitly framing software engineering research through pessimistic futures, or dystopias, will mitigate optimism bias and engender more diverse and t...More
