  1. 1. Sachiko Hirosue 2015.12.15
  2. 2. Crystal Ball, circa 1920’sPhotographer: George Hoyningen-Huene Model: Lee Miller for what innovative technologies for what disruptive futures shall we prepare? nurture the nature of collaboration resilience and remove the fear of failure awareness of society and environment responsibility
  3. 3. Creativity is just connecting things. – Steve Jobs, Wired February 1996 “Ideas rose in crowds; I felt them collide until pairs interlocked, so to speak, making a stable combination.” - Henri Poincaré on the discovery of a class of Fuchsian functions Maria Popova 6.6.2012
  4. 4. John Cleese SPACE TIME TIME Confidence humor Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  5. 5. SPACE USUAL PRESSURES: 1st to publish 1st to patent 1st to market Original idea Comparison Peer Tenure Career track Impact factor Competitors Funding Pressure Cutting Edge Product Application Productive Efficient Ego MENTAL PHYSICAL No place in lab to mix and match To make a mess Hackterialab2014, Yogyakarta ID
  6. 6. TIME no time too busy deadlines day dreaming in the shower while running over coffee at happy hour Unconscious processing Cycles of prototyping TIME HackteriaLab 2013 Bangalore, IN
  7. 7. Confidence Silicon Valley Mantra “fail fast fail often” Frustration is a part of the process Unconscious bias Perfect Grades Conclusive Experiments Protocol said… Webcam microscope kit version gaudilab
  8. 8. humor Open for Exchange New knowledge New ideas Different disciplines New cultures Inclusion Real engineering vs Soft science Hardcore Serious stuff Scientific rigor Judgments Exclusivity Waterhackathon Tech4Dev Lausanne, CH 2014
  9. 9. If we provide the SPACE, TIME, TIME, CONFIDENCE, and HUMOR, will happen? creative thinking interdisciplinary collaborations disruptive innovation Maybe not?
  10. 10. make this an active process
  11. 11. SB CDH
  12. 12. feed mixing fermentation aeration nourishment people Meet Hack & Brainstorm 6 month fellowship prototype cycles Real world Engagement Feed forward to research educational pilot proposal
  13. 13. People Bring 2nd year PhD students together Know what is going on in their research group On the ground knowledge of what could accelerate their research Passed qualifying exams Not sprinting to the end Take stress off their advisors A fellowship to develop cycles of prototype ideas Let the brainstorming be informed by the students’ thesis work Student PhD stay will become 4.5 years Invite kindred spirits as mentors Senior scientists, Core facility members Interested post-docs, faculty Outside-the-box researchers, artists
  14. 14. Set the exchange stage, bring the hacking spirit A (required) course – 2-day? / 1-week Open to all (2nd year PhDs) in all departments By application Meet Hack & Brainstorm Workshop style List up the problematics in own research Meet and greet – find collaborators Bring in external guests to animate Identify partners and projects that require time, and collaboration “We were constantly exchanging ideas and comparing our findings. Everyone participated, regardless of how much they already knew about DIY biology.” hackteria @ SATW 2015 Hackterialab Yogyakarta, ID 2014
  15. 15. 6 month fellowship prototype cycles Work on the projects Those who came up with the projects identified in the fall = TEAM Application? Selection? Space? (in one of the labs of the student teams?)
  16. 16. Real world Engagement “What happens when … When we scale “the community” beyond tech creators?” “Art changes who gets to engage“ Visual, tactile, storytelling “Build with, not for” Laurenellen McCann on Project community = research community We and collaborators are the community
  17. 17. Feed forward to research After the course we gain… After the fellowship Students who know each other from different faculties Laboratory specific problematics identified by the researchers themselves Create and maintain a “parking spot” - database of actionable ideas Open Science Proposals / application for the fellowship Self-initiators with some new skills Deepened collaboration between students and their labs Usable prototype for experiments in the lab
  18. 18. 01 06 09 03 2016 2017 Start small scale
  19. 19. Thank you for your feedback Resources needed Salar(ies) Fellowships – salary for 6 months x 2-6 PhDs Materials Guest(s) invitation – fees, travel, accommodation, per diem Administrative help Institutional help (allowing students to stay 4.5 years, for e.g.)
