"[R]educed-instruction-set computing (RISC) microprocessors are based on research that showed how to increase performance by optimizing the speed of the processor instructions that are used most frequently in actual computer programs. Speech recognition and machine vision technologies have matured through research into the machine collection of information from the physical world and its interpretation, which has to be quick and accurate to be useful."
"Development exploits the knowledge generated by research into scientific and technological phenomena, creating specific goods, processes, or services. In general, Internet start-ups, electronic commerce (e-commerce) technology, and the growing variety of information appliances are creatures of development."
