What Is

  1. 1. What is…
  2. 2. <ul><li>I don’t have enough knowledge, training, expertise, skills, etc, etc, etc to give sophisticated answers to these questions. </li></ul><ul><li>Instead, I did a Powerpoint presentation with some drawings and random thoughts. Lost some neurons in the process. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is information ? But if I can’t interpret them, I can’t draw any learning from them. There’s a whole lot of data, events, things, messages, (facts?) out there that could potentially become information. If it’s not useful for me, it’s just noise.
  4. 4. What is technology ? <ul><li>The ultimate black-box – </li></ul><ul><li>don’t care how it works as long as it’s useful for me. </li></ul><ul><li>A competitive advantage </li></ul><ul><li>For companies, nations…. </li></ul><ul><li>The conjuction of knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>( logos ) and technique. (right?) </li></ul>
  5. 5. What is technology ? This one I should know, after all, I attended a Technological Institute. From what I gathered from the logo of my alma mater, technology it’s science at the service of industry. Funny enough, I never had a course on Technology .
  6. 6. What is innovation ? Re-inventing the wheel?
  7. 7. What is innovation ? <ul><li>Radical breakthroughs are rare. We rely in concepts and precedents to do incremental changes. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What is visualization ? <ul><li>A way to make sense of the world around us. </li></ul>Getting the &quot; whole picture &quot; Translating information into images?
  9. 9. What is visualization ? <ul><li>Visualization as a way of making the black-box transparent </li></ul>
  10. 10. What is imagination ? <ul><li>For me, it’s the power to see something that is not there. </li></ul><ul><li>That is not e vide nt. </li></ul><ul><li>Future events, possibilities, scenarios, projects, dreams. </li></ul><ul><li>The capacity to develop mental images of concepts, analogies. </li></ul><ul><li>A way to trump facts? </li></ul>
  11. 11. What is creativity ? <ul><li>This one is the one that gives me more trouble to come up with an image. </li></ul><ul><li>The potential to create something that was not there? </li></ul><ul><li>Being creative is not the same as being artistic, or original. </li></ul><ul><li>There’s no recipe for creativity. Wish I had one otherwise… </li></ul>
