Alexander Kudryavtsev comments on a link about the abilities of birds to build elaborate nests. The question is discussed whether this indicates intelligence in animals or can be captured by the term “instinct” alone. The discussion continues on the extent to which humans themselves act “intelligently” when they undermine their own livelihoods, as has been more intensively diakutised in the last 20 years.
Record of the communication (so far only in Russian).
Московская ТРИЗ конференция “Модели представления и линии развития технических систем”.
Moscow TRIZ conference “Models of presentation and development lines for technical systems”.
Igor Vikentev published a Facebook post and a Youtube video (in Russian) on that subject. The Video is about a report by Alexei Yuryevich Litvin in St. Petersburg at the 45th Scientific Conference “Creativity Strategies” in December 2019: https://vikent.ru/konf.
I stored the Facebook post together with an English Translation in this Blog.
Доклад был прочитан в Санкт-Петербурге Алексеем Юрьевиче Литвиным на 45-й ещё доковидной и очной научной конференции «Стратегии творчества» в декабре 2019 года: https://vikent.ru/konf/
On October 28 passed away Boris I. Goldovski, one of the most important TRIZ theorists. Vladimir Petrov published a memorial letter with a short C.V. and a list of his main theoretical and practical achievements.
At the TRIZ Developer Summit 2019 in Minsk the TRIZ Ontology Project was started. The website of the project is in Russian, an English overview was published in the TDS 2019 Proceedings.

At the Business TRIZ Online 2020 Conference were presented several talks on SF modeling, in particular using the “fields” of love, belief etc. It was quite strange to me to see the notion of a field put in such a strange context. I started a discussion about that, reported here in a separate thread
Business TRIZ Online 2020 Conference
I compiled a conversation between Valeri Souchkov and Anton Kozhemyako about TRIZ teaching experience on Facebook.
On Facebook I made the suggestion to apply a profound TRIZ analysis to the Corona problem as a challenge full of contraditions to transform the harmful into useful (or - at least - less harmful). I started a separate Corona Thread to record the most useful proposals.
May be it is also worth to collect links about TRIZ in Business? I just started such a collection beginning with Facebook posts.
Valeri Souchkov about TRIZ and earning money. Почему ТРИЗ-команды не запускают свои продукты? (Why TRIZ teams don’t sell their products?)
Sergey Simakov started another discussion about the basics of TRIZ.
There is a continuation of the discussion on the problem “What’s the Relation of Man to its Technical Systems?”. I had a close look into the “MATRIZ approved material” about TESE, the “Trends of Engineering Systems Evolution” and also Nikolay Shpakovsky’s Book “Tree of Technological Evolution”. More is available in a separate TSN Thread.
On the TRIZ Facebook channel a reminder to a 2003 paper on application of TRIZ principles within the SARS epidemy published in the TRIZ Journal was posted showing that using TRIZ principles is widespread, even if unconscious.
Valeri Souchkov about the role of ideas for solutions in complex challenges in a post on his Facebook channel.
Антон Кожемяко: интервью про ТРИЗ [мифы, возможности, тренды] (Anton Kozhemyako: interview about TRIZ [myths, opportunities, trends])
The relationship between TRIZ and philosophical questions, in particular those related to Hegel’s dialectic and thus also to the fundamental epistemic assumptions of Marx and Engels, is undisputed, see for example the work of Justus Schollmeyer](https://secondnegation.com/).
In his work, Anton Kozhemyako refers strongly to philosophical theory buildings, which were designed within the school of the Russian philosopher G.P. Schtschedrovitsky. Mikhail Rubin criticized this reference in his expert opinion of Kozhemyako’s work as unsustainable mainly due to terminology inconsistencies. That remains to be explored.
Московский ТРИЗ Клуб. «Марксизм между будущим и прошлым» (Moscow TRIZ Club. “Marxism between the future and the past”)

I started a discussion about the problem “What’s the Relation of Man to its Technical Systems?”. The starting point came from the Development Laws of Technical Systems that play an important role in TRIZ theory, but are shaped in a different manner within different TRIZ schools.
The discussion was started in the TRIZ facebook group a consolidated version of the discussion both in German and Russian is available in a separate TSN Thread. Meanwhile additional remarks and links were added.
