                The BITS Goa edition of WiCamp is over. Here's the event summary.




BITS Pilani, Goa Campus



6th Feb 2010

Perspectives on Innovation


In yet another edition of WiCamp, sparks flew. This was hosted at the beautiful campus of BITS Pilani Goa. Though a young campus, but the infrastructure and intellectual capital could humble any other engineering and sciences college in India.

With close to 10 speakers and 80 campers, Goa was at it’s intellectual peak. Just a day before, the same campus hosted the TEDx. Apart from the talk sessions as well the now famous JAM, this edition of WiCamp also introduced the TV styled Debate Session. With five panelist, the audience went freewheeling in their questions and suggestions. It was a showcase of the campers’s wit and the panelists’ ability to draw from their rich insight.

Here’s a quick summary of the WiCamp that went by. Do write back with your suggestions/ queries on the event.



Regards | Pavan Soni (www.pavansoni.net)  

Dr. Mridula Goel started the session with an introduction to Innovation and Creativity as practiced. She opined that Real Creativity is Very Difficult, as most of human life we simply re-arrange things to solve a problem. She calls it Innovation. The single most important element of a successful innovation is – Voice of Customer. She advocates observing the customer in her natural environment to tap into this insight. Using prototypes and pictures come as really handy over here.



Harsh topped up this view with his experience working at the silicon valley. The fast and furious pace of the valley is the secret to innovation. He impressed upon the need for Social Dynamics for learning and cultivating such ideas into something tangible. Innovations call for an Ecosystem for growth as it gives Liberty to Think!



Sangeeta took the discussion on innovation to an altogether new platitude. She exposed her passion for Bharatnatyam while she is discussed about her work on Computer Modelling for Bharatnatyam Movements. Using Neural Networking and Inductive Learning she posed some interesting opportunities for the students.



Dr. Ranjan Dey pulled the audience back from art and dramatics to something more engineering like. To start with, he discussed about the infamous Challenger and Columbia Satellite Disasters at NASA and impressed upon the need to have responsible engineers. He then went into discussing some interesting developments happening in the space of Thermodynamic Properties of Fluid and the need to be a resolute researcher.



Dr. Prasanta Deb added to this research-oriented discussion further onto the track of Computational Fluid Dynamics and the aid it is for Research and Innovation. He was of the strong opinion that research must expect solutions, else it’s futile.



Dr. Mitaxi Mehta echoed the same message when she talked about some recent innovations in physics. For her, innovation is solving a problem in a nonstandard way and the best practice at being innovative is through solving problems. Drawing instances from her illustruous career, she concluded that what worked was not luck, it was sheer hard work and of course ideas.



And then we were into the Open Debate. A brief on each of the panelists’ perspectives here.



PM Johari from the Shipping Corporation of India Ltd argued that we all are the product of our Experience, Environment and Education. And to excel in life, it’s important to purify- body, speech, emotions, thoughts and self.



Dr. Meenakshi furthered this thought with hew views on Creativity and Critical Thinking that they co-exist. The innovation process goes through the stages of Insight, Mulling it over and the Aaha moment. For an idea to really traverse through, one needs to hone the personalities of a Judge as well a Kid.



Tallulah was the innovator personified there. Being an architect attempting to make Green Buildings and solving Waste Management Problem, she opined that it’s very important to learn from how animals make their habitat in a sustainable fashion.



Mahesh from ONGC sprinkled snippets of his wisdom when he said- Be ready to be fooled by others; and As you try for the best, be prepared for the worst. In his view, innovation needn’t come from a genius, you just need to keep yourself constantly occupied with good people who keep reminding you of your strengths.



Prof. Joshi summed up the discussion pretty well by noticing that rules are both binding and liberating at the same time. While innovation is all about taking legacy and making something new out of it; proof enables sharing of ideas.



These powerful thoughts were then followed by some vibrant discussions around questions posed by the campers. In all it was a very fruitful day.




Special thanks to the student organizers- Shweta and Apurv.
