doctorate in metallurgic sciences and
is the director of the Observatoire de la Révolution
de l’Intelligence (Observatory of the Intelligence Revolution) at
Futuribles International. He
is the co-author of
La Révolution de l’Intelligence
(1983-1985), the first report that introduced the concept of the intangible/immaterial
society to France. Journalist and consultant in foresight
('prospective' in French,
is different from forecasting and futurology),
he currently collaborates with large businesses and with SMEs interested in
integrating the consequences of human and technological evolution into their
strategy and management. He developed with Futuribles a method
(called 'VIP') for evaluating the overall capital of firms.
André-Yves is also researching the role of
cultural and political factors on creativity and development;
and he is likewise
keen on identifying common
elements in all cultures: Asiatic,
European and African.
He participates, from this perspective, in the
deliberations of the
Asia 21 think-tank. I, in fact, got to know him just before our
round-table discussion of 11th January 2005.
