An Internet-based software tool for Innovation, Foresight, and Visioning based on a proprietary brainstorming system called: Idea Acceleration™ A systematic, multi-dimensional analysis of the infinite interactions of: Dynamic Knowledge (Trends, Predictions, & Scenarios) Inspired by a theoretical convergence of Nuclear Physics, Neuroscience, and Cognitive Psychology Dr. Howard Rasheed, Founder & CEO www.i4i-svs.com
High-energy Fusion in Nuclear Physics • New particles created and detected during energetic collisions of protons and neutrons • Gamma Rays produced from interaction • High Energy facilitated in particle accelerators.
High Energy Fusion in Neuroscience Neuron Interaction in Brain • Sudden bursts of high frequency oscillations produces gamma rays at moments of insight • Creates new neuron pathways in underused (90%) parts of the brain • Hardwires brain for insight with systematic attention to new patterns of information • Enhances creativity & out-of-the-box thinking • Overcomes brain’s resistance to change neurons insight Neurons New paths
Fusion in Cognitive Psychology • Multi-dimensional, higher-order, and analogical thinking • Bisociative and Multisociative “out of the box” thinking • Iterative convergence of two or more unrelated concepts
Fusion in Decision Science • Brainwriting process for permutations of Multisociative Thinking™ • Brainstorming algorithm for systematic analysis of the infinite interactions of Dynamic Knowledge
Fusion of Dynamic Knowledge • What is Dynamic Knowledge? • Prevailing Trends, • Expert Predictions, and • Probable Scenarios • Distinctive Characteristics • Movement, Direction, Time • Future implications • Relevance and Value
High-energy Visioning Visionary Leaders Use Intellectual Fusion™ to: • Recognize Economic Opportunity • Create Value thru Invention and Innovation • Create New Paradigms for Social Change

Trend Definition • Trends are defined as the changes and events in an organization's external environment, which might affect the organization's function. • Trends function as a pattern of change or movement of a force in a particular direction over a period of time. Trends are sustainable change in a particular direction for moderate to long durations.
Trend types: PETS • · Political-legal forces: • allocate power and provide constraining and protecting laws and regulation • ·Economic forces: • regulate the exchange of materials, money, energy, and information • ·Technological forces: • generate problem-solving inventions • ·Socio-cultural forces: • regulate the values, mores, and customs of society
Quantitative trend analysis • Trends can be quantified as series of historical data that can be projected into the future. • Forecasting a turning point or a drastic shift of technological change in the economic context can use leading indicators, econometrics, adoption modes, and decomposition methods.
