The Paradox of Innovation

The Paradox of Innovation | Higher Education Research | Scoop.it

Piero brings an interesting perspective on creativity. He was trained as a mathematician, but has worn many hats in both the art and science worlds. He was the head of the Artificial Intelligence Center at Olivetti based in Cupertino, California, he started one of the earliest e-zines…in 1985 and has taught at both Harvard and Stanford. Piero is likely most famous for his prolific writings on rock, jazz and avantgarde music. Some of his writings include,“A History of Rock and Dance Music” (2009), “A History of Jazz Music 1900-2000″ (2007), “A History of Popular Music before Rock Music” (2007), and, “A guide to avantgarde music”. We look forward to his posts and insights into creativity, creative process and creative links between diverse fields.

Enjoy!
