    What is Science For? The Lighthill Report on Artificial Intelligence Reinterpreted.Jon Agar - forthcoming - British Journal for the History of Science:1-22.
    This paper uses a case study of a 1970s controversy in artificial-intelligence research to explore how scientists understand the relationships between research and practical applications. It is part of a project that seeks to map such relationships in order to enable better policy recommendations to be grounded empirically through historical evidence. In 1972 the mathematician James Lighthill submitted a report, published in 1973, on the state of artificial-intelligence research under way in the United Kingdom.
