The Capital of Intelligence – the Intelligence of Capital
We have recently contributed a book chapter to the bilingual (our chapter is in English) book "The Capital of Intelligence – the Intelligence of Capital". Our study is based on a previous conference paper presented VIPSI 2007 Tokyo; it's title is "Knowledge Sharing in Knowledge Restaurants".

We introduce a for restaurant metaphors to describe the four ways of knowledge sharing today: in the buffet instant knowledge is available through self-service; in the restaurant where the waiter serves a la cart knowledge; in some very expensive ones the chef recommends suitable knowledge, and in the coffee room we can chat while making our own coffe or tea.

Veljko Milutinović has organised another renaissance-style VIPSI conference; this time Jaszmina (my wife) and I met even more incredibly interesting people than usually. Martin Perl talked about his most recent research into Dark Energy, "which is certainly not dark and might not be energy at all". Michael Flynn showed how our future autonomous sensors and systems will be (low)powered, culminating in an artificial fruit fly. Yale Patt gave a presentation on the future microprocessors but really he was talking about thinking and education. Katsuhito Iwai discussed what will become of corporations as "human brains matter more than shareholders' money". Felix Hong examined the K-12 education in the light of picture-based vs. rule-based reasoning.
I have also presented a paper on understanding creativity; describing creativity through jokes, discussing the role of freedom and responsibility, and examining the various types of love, trying to understand what the Muse is.

The World University Presidents Summit (WUPS 2009) with the topic of "Current Trends in Higher Education" was organised by the University of Belgrade early April. I have chaired a session "Universities as Catalysts in Promoting Regional Innovation"; the speakers, university presidents from Peru, Turkey, and Serbia (see photo), shared their diverse visions of the future with the audience. I also conducted a discussion session on "Strategic Management and New Challenges of Competitive Universities"; it was interesting to hear about the different approaches to the same problem in different cultures.
The great patron of the Serbian education, HRH the Crown Prince Alexander II, invited the participants to a reception at the White Palace (Serbian: Beli Dvor). I also had the opportunity to adore the beautiful art nouveau building of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Srpska Akademija Nauke i Umetnosti - SANU) when participated a conversation with Nikola Hajdin, the President of SANU.

Our laboratory at AoM 2008 This year we have again attended the AoM annual meeting; this year there were 9,000+ participants. We have presented two papers, a session paper on Intuition and an interactive paper on Rationalities and conducted a professional developmental workshop on how to support the decision taker. The most interesting story this time was Jim March, the distinguished speaker of MOC, who talked about the history of business education.

On the photo (do you see Zoltán sitting?) is what we called our laboratory during the conference, here we discussed what we have seen, prepared for our presentations, and tried to teach the young generation.
