Hot streaks are also known as 'career-defining periods of unusual success' and this has been observed in almost every domain such as Einstein's "Miracle Year" of groundbreaking discoveries to director Peter Jackson's box-office-smash Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The biggest impediment to understanding which elements trigger a hot streak was not being able to characterize creative works in a standard way across diferrent careers.
Researchers from the Pennsylvania State University then developed a deep neural network for the three domains of cous: paintings, film, and science. Their AI system used visual-recognition technology to analyze creative artworks.
The neural network enabled the researchers to capture the dimensions related to their career output in the context of exploration and exploitation.
The researchers from Pennsylvania state University found that the 'recipe' for a hot streak = the exploration of creative options followed by exploitation of a specific lane of work.
However, following this, that equation is not enough in itself but a 'specific exploration-exploitation sequence' is needed to increase the likelihood of a hot streak.
The research shows that when people experiment, they likely gain new skills from working in different subfields and then eventually find the best one to exploit.
Individuals can promote and support hot streaks by pursuing any creative endeavor by exploring multiple subfields to find the right fit.
Organizations can promote and support hot streaks by making use of 'hot streak insights' because applying the understanding of hot-streak dynamics can help decide on how to manage intellectual property.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
