Faculty of Information Science and Technology (FIST)
Multimedia University, Malaysia
Dr. Lau Siong Hoe serves as Associate Professor in Faculty of Information Science and Technology, Multimedia University, Malaysia. Presently he is the Dean of Faculty of Information Science and Technology. Dr. Lau received a B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Technology, Malaysia and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Information Technology from the Universiti Putra Malaysia and Multimedia University, respectively. His research interest is in Internet of Things (IoT), focuses on the Human-Computer Interaction Security (HCISec), Learning analytics and Educational Computing and Technology. Dr. Lau is a Senior Member of IEEE, USA and certified as a MATRIZ level 3 practitioner. He speaks regularly at workshops/conferences/seminars on how to accelerate innovation with TRIZ for technology and engineering. Over the past few years, he has been practicing the TRIZ in R&D and conducting inventive problem solving workshops to help people solve problems creatively and innovatively in a scientific way.
How to Accelerate Innovation for Engineering and Technology with TRIZ
This creative problem solving program is based on TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving)with the aim to provide the large public with knowledge and tools which help them solve creatively and innovatively in a scientific way problems they may encounter during their lives.
The TRIZ systematic approach guides people during problem solving activities avoiding a random exploration of the space of solutions towards solutions that have demonstrated their efficiency and effectiveness in similar situations in the past, in the same or incompletely different application domains. TRIZ does not give solutions directly applicable but it suggests only research directions to find solutions and then leaving place to the inventors’ creativity.
In summary, the aim of this tutorial/workshop is not only to accumulate knowledge, but rather to learn to think creatively, teach oneself and seek answers to questions as yet unexplored and put creative ideas into action systematically. With TRIZ, inventors can generate more ideas than before, faster than before, and select the best ones.
