Creativity is often inhibited by pre-existing mental frameworks and psychological inertia. The aim of my project is
to contrast these phenomena and to enhance innovation in enterprise by providing systematic access to creative
problem solving through cross-pollination. FluidSOLID, inspired by established theories of creative problem solving, is meant to be the first online open
platform that aggregates best practices of creative solutions in enterprise (across different industries) and uses
this data to generate novel solutions to problems.
