 UPCOMING EVENT: World Conference TFC-TRAI 2024 "AI-powered Innovation and Inventive Design"

TFC2024 small

Conference website:

One of the key outcomes of the World Conference TFC2023 "Towards AI aided Invention and Innovation" was the understanding that AI will dominate all stages of the invention and innovation process and will go beyond the limits of existing innovation approaches or theories.

For this reason, the European TRIZ Association ETRIA established a new International Society for AI-powered Invention and Innovation - ISAIII  which is intended to be a think tank of AI and innovation researchers, practitioners and engineering educators and will be involved in the organisation of the upcoming World Conference TFC24 on AI powered Innovation and Inventive Design on November 6-8, 2024 at the Technical University Cluj-Napoca, Romania, together with the European TRIZ Association (ETRIA), the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and other organisations.
