Marat Gafitulin. Engineering and developing new skills

Increased global change dynamics result in more frequently occurring non-standard situations. When a problem arises, knowledge and experience amassed during the previous period often prove insufficient to offer the right solution. Finding new approaches to solving challenging tasks is thus necessary. The publication outlines the author's approach to setting up the educational environment necessary for the formation and growth of human skills.


Natalia Rubina. Shaping research topics for schoolchildren and students under the Biological Effects research project

Shaping research topics for schoolchildren and students under the Biological Effects research project


Natig Gasil oglu Aliyev. DEVELOPMENT VECTOR: CHERNYAEVSKY - ALTSHULLER. (Part of the Improving Regional-Level TRIZ Educational Practices series)

Given the topic's materiality, the report logically continues the development of proposals presented in the previous presentation (TRIZ SUMMIT 2022), aimed at improving regional-level TRIZ educational practices (method: S-shaped System Development, System Operator). In contrast to the earlier work, this presentation includes certain theoretical aspects from the pedagogical writings by Gori Seminary graduates in a bid to integrate them into the regional-level educational context alongside TRIZ Pedagogy's approaches. In the first section of the paper, readers will be offered conclusions (method: Morphological analysis, Structural/component analysis, Comparative analysis) stemming from the methodological advancements by the said seminary's faculty. In the second section of the report, the TRIZ SUMMIT 2023 attendees will find out about the unique experience of the renowned educator Alexey Chernyaevsky in selecting talented students for the Gori Seminary; these students would go on to become renowned educators, teachers, writers, and composers.  The recommendations are intended to help leverage regional experience and shape worthy goals (method: Life Strategy for Creative Personality Development, LSCPD) for well-motivated participants in the run-up to the annual TRIZ Developers Summit Cup International Contest and other similar competitions held in the TRIZ community. It should be noted that, similar to the previous presentation, the article's social significance for the TRIZ community lies in the conduct of preliminary research by the Education Committee in the Republic of Azerbaijan, homeland of Genrikh Altshuller, who authored the TRIZ theory.


Mikhail Rubin. TIPS – Civilisation as a Mission of Developing TIPS

The mission of TIPS (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) is not only to solve problems and develop people's
inventive thinking, but also to create a system of values corresponding to the goals of uniting civilisations on the Earth
on the basis of dominance of creative and loving relationships in the society, rather than exploitative, greedy and
authoritarian ones. The civilisphere formed in accordance with such principles (unification of civilisations into a single
system) is a new type of a geosphere along with the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere.
A TIPS civilisation is a model of a civilisation in which TIPS, as a social tool for development, is an important
component of the state and science and a widespread area of human activity. Formation of a TIPS civilisation is one
of the tools that can compensate for cognitive distortions that can lead a civilisation to catastrophic consequences.
The report deals with various aspects of formation of the TIPS civilisation concept, with the goals, objectives and
structure of a TIPS civilisation, as well as with the key objectives of development of TIPS and the Creative Personality
Development Theory (CPDT). Given the structure of a TIPS civilisation, as described in this paper, by the mid-22
century, the need for TIPS researchers, experts, advisers and teachers will amount to more than 20 mln people.


Natalia Rubina. 2023 TRIZ Summit Cup. Aftermath.

The TRIZ Summit Cup differs from other TRIZ competitions in that different forms of tasks in a number of categories give competitors the chance to showcase their understanding of various TRIZ tools while engaging in inventive activity. The 2023 competition's theme is Aviation. The most intriguing solutions to inventive tasks, research, and sci-fi short stories by the participants will all be covered in the report.


Timur Gafitulin. The contradiction between humanisation and dehumanisation of education as seen in TRIZ pedagogy

The pedagogical process is prone to dehumanisation, or automation and forcing out humans, just like other technologies. This enables the completion of crucial tasks like the individualisation and acceleration of education as well as the discovery and dissemination of best practises. However, this tendency undermines the human-centered nature of education, mechanises the learning process, lessens the impact of the common teacher's personality and makes the gap between teacher and student unbridgeable. It is hard to come to terms with the idea of AI-controlled training and upbringing. The ever-heated argument between proponents of 'hard' and 'soft' science might find an interesting resolution in TRIZ pedagogy, which envisions instruction in both technological and creative practises. The report's goal is to demonstrate how TRIZ pedagogy resolves the contradiction between the humanisation and dehumanisation of education.


Pavel Amnuel. Technology Forecasting in Futurology and Science Fiction.

In modern futurology, methods of extrapolation, trends, scenarios and expert surveys are usually used. More or less successful forecasts can be made for short periods of time (short-term forecasts, up to one year). Medium-term forecasts (1-5 years) are much less likely to come true, and for long-term forecasts (more than 5 years), the probability of implementation approaches zero in the most cases. The main reason: futurological forecasts cannot take into account the inevitable qualitative leaps in the development of science and technology. Therefore, paradoxically, in order to predict the future, it is necessary to involve also science fiction literature, since science fiction authors are not afraid to predict qualitatively new ideas in the field of science and technology. Therefore, science fiction ideas have a greater degree of survival than the ideas of futurists. Fantasists make mistakes more often when they use the ideas of modern science without changing them qualitatively with the help of RTV techniques. The report provides examples of such science fiction ideas, and science fiction ideas obtained using RTV techniques and subsequently confirmed by science and technology. The examples given and the analysis of science fiction ideas can be used in teaching the development of creative imagination.


Dr. Boris Farber. A complex synergy of math, science, and TRIZ in pedagogy and research

TRIZ Biopharma International, LLC, Farber’s Center for Academic Success, Inc. 

Solving scientific and technical problems can be divided into two parts: a qualitative level utilizing TRIZ and a quantitative level using mathematical methods and computer modeling. The latter is essential in implementing solutions obtained in the former effectively. As an illustration, I will provide some examples from my research.
1. To create anthropomorphic robots, an energy optimization criterion had to be used to solve the issue of hinge arrangement. The problem could only be solved using Lagrange differential equations of the second kind.
2. When developing drugs to fight against multidrug-resistant bacteria, using Volterra's integro-differential equations can help us obtain quantitative parameters of the process and establish quantitative relationships.
3. During my work on developing simulators and prosthetic and robotic joints, I found that TRIZ principles led me to consider the use of magnetic fluids. When faced with the challenge of creating controllable systems, it seemed logical to use magnetic fluids to improve system controllability. However, due to the lack of differential equations and calculation methods, I was unable to fully execute the project. 
4. In silico modeling molecules are based on approximation methods and pre-differential equations. Tests conducted on my numerous undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students have revealed that the majority of them are unaware of how to apply calculus, physics, and biology methods for mathematical modeling to solve their  problems.
Based on our 48 years of experience in training individuals and corporations, our report explores the connection between TRIZ, and fundamental education, and how they complement each other. TRIZ training requires a strong foundation in exact sciences and languages, but many students lack adequate fundamental education. To address this issue, we have developed teaching methods for exact sciences that enhance the effectiveness of TRIZ training.
The approach of TRIZ and basic knowledge training, known as the "ring" approach, are mutually complementary. In this paper, we explore the various ways in which TRIZ can be applied to improve critical thinking and enhance fundamental knowledge. Using examples from both online and classroom teaching in Europe and America, we highlight the benefits of this multifaceted approach. By using TRIZ, students and professionals alike can gain advantages in learning, creativity, scientific careers, and everyday life.
