“La definizione dinamica di creatività: potenziale originalità ed efficacia”: Prof. Corazza @Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche e Sociali

Domani venerdì 11 Marzo alle ore 13:00 il Prof. Giovanni Emanuele Corazza terrà il seminario dal titolo “La definizione dinamica di creatività: potenziale originalità ed efficacia” presso il Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche e Sociali, Sala Romei, Via dei Bersaglieri 6, Bologna.

Il ritmo evolutivo della società è oggi fortemente accelerato da sviluppi tecnologici, i quali impongono trasformazioni profonde sul modo di vivere e interagire degli esseri umani. Varie forme di intelligenza artificiale svolgono con crescente efficienza compiti che in precedenza erano affidati all’uomo. Proiettandosi nel futuro, la tesi che si intende discutere nel seminario è che in questo scenario le capacità creative della mente umana diventano strumento fondamentale di senso, utilità e dignità, e come tali devono essere formalizzate in un assetto teorico e in una disciplina accessibile a tutti. Al centro di questo quadro teorico è la definizione stessa di creatività, che si propone essere dinamica per poter soddisfare a criteri pragmatisti di rappresentatività, trasferibilità e soggettività del fenomeno. Questo porta ai concetti fondamentali di potenziale originalità ed efficacia.

“The dynamic definition of creativity: potential originality and effectiveness”: Prof. Corazza @ Universitè Paris Descartes

On March 8, 2016, Prof. Giovanni Emanuele Corazza held the seminar entitled “The dynamic definition of creativity: potential originality and effectiveness” at Universitè Paris Descartes.

The talk started by considering the central role of creativity in the future post-information society, followed by a call for a pragmatist approach to creativity studies, bringing as a consequence the recognition of the dynamic nature of this phenomenon.

At the foundation of the proposed new theoretical framework lies the definition of creativity itself, which is turned from static to dynamic through the introduction of the concept of potential originality and effectiveness. Starting from this central definition, and through the introduction of several auxiliary definitions, we arrive at novel definitions for creative achievement and creative inconclusiveness. While both aspects are key in the creative process, creative inconclusiveness was not part of previous definitions, but it can be argued that its role is most fundamental for effective education in creativity. The new definitions are shown to have full backward compatibility with the extant corpus of scientific research in creativity, as well as forward effectiveness in suggesting novel investigation approaches to support the consideration of new theoretical hypotheses.

Prof. Corazza will hold the seminar at the Engine’s headquarters to meet the creative strategists presenting several aspects related to the definition of creative achievement, highlighting how to increase and maximise the potential for success. The talk will focus on specific indications on how the systematic use of apparently irrelevant information can serve as a professional tool for creatives. During the seminar, Prof. Corazza will also present the findings from the administration of the CREAM battery test to Engine’s professionals, as part of activities of the CREAM European project.

MIC@OPTIMUS: the first session of idea generation

On February 10-11, 2016, Prof Giovanni Corazza and Dr Sergio Agnoli are taking part to the kick-off meeting of the OPTIMUS project at ESA (European Space Agency) premises in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.                                                                    

The objective of the OPTIMUS project (OPtimized transmission TechnIques for satcoM UnicaSt interactive traffic) is the development of a new air interface able to increase the efficiency of the forward link of a unicast satellite communication system. The Marconi Institute for Creativity, in partnership with the University of Bologna, will lead WP1.1, devoted to the application of creativity techniques to the OPTIMUS topic areas, with the aim of generating disruptive ideas leading to further development in the course of the project.

The first experience of the OPTIMUS Consortium with the application of creativity techniques took place during the dedicated idea generation session within the kick-off meeting of yesterday February 10, 2016, to be continued today, February 11, with the assessment of the original ideas to be developed and tested throughout the project activites.

“Rete mobile 5G: La corsa all’oro 2020”: an article by Prof. G. E. Corazza on Agenda Digitale

The telecommunications world is moving toward a new generation: 5G. This should not to be perceived merely as a new mobile radio standard, but as a completely new telecom infrastructure. In the article posted by Agenda Digitale on January 26, 2016 Prof. Giovanni Corazza explains why.

Besides increasing by orders of magnitude the broadband mobile access performance, 5G will offer mission critical services and provide vital connectivity to the Internet of Things. This will also be the dawn of terrestrial mobile millimeter-wave communications.
