The Roots of Collaborative Innovation

The Roots of Collaborative Innovation

As a result, the human decision-making process in practice really consists in a search through a finite number of options, the fewer the better. People tend to identify with sub-goals rather than with global aims, exploit pre-existing structures or regularities in the environment, apply approximate or heuristic approaches to problems, and be content with good enough solutions. Moreover, the stochastic vs. combinatorically optimized noise generation ambiguity emphasizes the traditional major IDB problem (Fiorini, 2014a) in current most advanced instrumentation system, still at the inner core of human knowledge extraction by experimentation in science (Fiorini, 2017a).

Therefore, to grasp a more reliable, effective representation of reality and to get more realistic physical and biological simulation techniques, differently from the past, researchers and scientists need two intelligently articulated hands: both stochastic and combinatorical approaches synergistically articulated by natural coupling (Fiorini, 2017c).

It is time to recall Einstein’s inspirational quote: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” It is time to start a new era on the deep awareness of the original configuration! Present planetary problems are the legacy of multiscale-order deficiencies from the past, obsolete, Western, human reductionist worldview. They cannot be fixed by the usual, traditional, hierarchical approach alone, by doing what we do better or more intensely, but rather by changing the way we do, the way we understand the deep meaning of data and information. We need “New Eyes” to find innovative solutions to old problems (Fiorini, 2018a, 2018b, 2019b).

Today the ever-accelerating progress of technology and changes in the mode of human life give the appearance of approaching some essential singularity in the history of the race beyond which human affairs, as we know them, could not continue. It may well be that we are approaching the end of one of those cycles and need to prepare for a more significant reframing of the basis for information, knowledge and civilization in the age to come, starting from the bottom and going up.
