I am starting my graduate studies in computer science this year and am confused as to what quality research (some new innovation or discovery) domain I would choose specifically amongst virtualization, distributed computing, containers, and/or blockchain.
My main issue is that I understand but am not interested in algorithms and their efficiencies. Similarly, I can understand my undergraduate level mathematics but that does not interest me. I have good knowledge and understanding of the operating system, virtualization, and containers concepts.
I have researched regarding this online and came to know people normally only compare out the efficiency of one algorithm over another in problems of memory sharing, process switching, and other similar problems; is there any other method or means to do something new in the field of cloud, containers or blockchain?
It would be quite helpful if any expert(s) from these domains, can enlighten me regarding as to what type of research is currently going on in these domains and how research work in these domains can be done (while staying away from algorithms and complex mathematics).
Thanks to all those who answered and commented. Answering some comments and to give some more context to my question: I am looking to select my research area from the broad domains of Cloud (virtualization and administration), DevOps methodologies and tools (optimizing workflows and processes), Containers technology (for example dockers and kubernetes), and Blockchain optimization ( I am aware this one would involve complex algorithms)
Also, I’m not looking to write PHP scripts or JS ( I know that is engineering). I personally dislike front-end scripting. Some of my projects include setting up a private cloud infrastructure for a company in an internship, writing shell scripts for CI/CD purposes and creating a custom RHEL ISO which already has preinstalled software (no, not templates). Basically, I am proficient to work with python, bash shell, Java, C and have a good understanding of how OS, Cloud and IT infrastructure generally works. You can say I am interested in the data center or infrastructure optimization.
So, my question’s main perspective is: I find it hard to believe that computer science research (at least development of new techniques, tools, and platforms) is impossible without deep knowledge of mathematics and algorithm designing (I maybe wrong but that’s the point of the question). Is there established research work or progress done in these domains which do not involve very complex usage of algorithms and mathematics like integration, differentiation and such. Please note, I am trying to avoid complex usage and modification of algorithms and its maths. I am interested to discover methodologies of such research (I am hardly able to find much on the internet)
