Ars inveniendi, Latin for the " art of invention ."
The origins of the concept are a work of Ramon Llull (circa 1233-1315 ) , Ars compendious veritatem inveniendi ( a reduced version from what would be hisArs Magna) and is related to an attempt to formalize a language based on combinatorial universal rules for all types of knowledge. This attempt (and the concept itself ) would be taken up in the seventeenth century by Leibnitz, recognized as "the last universal genius" , thinker, philosopher of science and knowledge and inventor of the binary system, foundation of all our current digitalization. Today, many centuries later, the man seems to have learned that knowledge does not come from any magical revelation nor a universal method valid for everything, and is that experience (even failed) and the learning that she leaves us, what make ourselves better at each of our activities. But the key to this improvement is precisely the ars inveniendi: the ability to innovate, to create from the practice, to generalize from the concrete experiences real knowledge to be applied in others fields. That's the philosophy that A-3i applies in business. The term inclusion in the company name is a simple tribute to the constant aspiration to learn and innovate that rules us.
