Keynote Speech – A Foundation for Increasing Human Intelligence
Genrich Altshuller transformed innovation from an art into a science; a science that can even be used to re-invent itself. TRIZ focuses on problem-solving and the evolution of technological systems. It gives us the ability to take on and solve many of the world’s most complex problems at an amazingly accelerated pace. Expanding TRIZ allows us to go beyond technologies to creating and evolving any business model or business process. The result, although still fragmented, TRIZ is being applied in all areas of business and human interaction, being made more teachable, manageable, and executable, and being woven into the fabric of education and organizations. TRIZ has also laid the groundwork for increasing human intelligence; the mental quality that consists of a unique set of abilities; learning from experience, the ability to adapt to new situations, the ability to understand and handle abstract concepts, and utilize knowledge to manipulate our environment.
