A seminar is organized by the KMIRC titled Knowledge Dynamics, to be held on 22 Jun 2016 in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  Details are as follow:

Date 22 Jun 2016 (Wednesday)
Time 14:00 - 15:30
Venue CF401, PolyU, Hunghom
Speaker Professor Constantin Bratianu, Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Bucharest, Romania, Academy of Romanian Scientists, Romania


The purpose of this paper is to present a new perspective on knowledge dynamics. This perspective is based on the energy metaphor, and the theory of multifield knowledge spectrum. That makes a significant step forward with respect to all the other knowledge dynamics models which are based on the stocks and flows metaphor, since the new perspective uses the entropy principle from thermodynamics and not the Newtonian logic. While the metaphor of knowledge flows leads to the physical motion in space, the metaphor of knowledge energy allows us to interpret dynamics as an irreversible transformation between two well-defined fields. Also, the paper presents the entropic transformation of the potential organizational knowledge into the operational organizational knowledge performed by organizational integrators.
