Breakthrough innovation relies on truly creative ideas, but too often these come from random moments of insight. Klydo was born when we asked ourselves:What if we could use AI to help spark these breakthrough ideas?
To pursue this question, we’ve been coming up with breakthrough ideas of our own, drawing on insights from neuroscience, psychology and artificial intelligence to distill the fundamentals of lateral thinking and problem solving.This is our manifesto.
Complexity is drowning us.
Identifying and solving problems in this environment requires clarity and context. This is no small feat!
Problems are inevitable.
For every problem solved, new problems are created and so a sustainable, static and problem-free world is unachievable. Sustainable progress is therefore the only desirable form of sustainability.
Problem solving is misrepresented.
Understanding and overcoming this misrepresentation is a critical first step in enhancing our capacity to solve problems.
Creativity has no limits.
What we need is a collective push to design technologies and frameworks that focus on realising this creative potential.
Reality is based on perception.
Paradoxically, this realisation improves your perception of reality and unlocks a myriad of new ways to view the world.
Great ideas come from afar.
From Dyson’s bagless vacuum cleaner to Velcro, it pays to look beyond.
So that’s what we believe in, now how does that translate into our values?
Let’s cultivate a culture of questioning authority, embracing failure, nurturing curiosity and always asking what if?
So let’s stop the games and politics and start trusting each other.
Grab your pen and paper, we all need to become storytellers!
Enjoy the journey.
Seeing as we can never solve all problems, we may as well have fun along the way.
Define your purpose.
By unlocking our individual creative potential, we can all be empowered to solve the problems that matter most to us and consequently define our own true sense of purpose.
Let's do this!
As individuals we are capable of curating our lives around the values we believe in and the subsequent problems we want to solve. As a collective we are capable of solving any problem and each time we do, we are faced with even more compelling problems and opportunities.
And at the heart of all this is lateral thinking and creativity. So what could be more rewarding than building technology that aims to enhance this very trait in people?
Well, funnily enough, that is our exact thinking at Klydo.
