Using next generation science to meet societal, organizational, and global challenges
The world is transforming.
Why has the unexpected become commonplace? Because of complexity. Even with mountains of data available, neither decision makers nor traditional science is equipped to unravel collective behaviors with far-reaching consequences.
Science is advancing.
Using the next generation of mathematics, complex systems science helps us understand the dynamics of society and civilization by making more accurate predictions than either statistics or calculus.
The effects of policy action can be powerful, broad, and sometimes unexpected and undesirable.
Emergence refers to the existence or formation of collective behaviors — what parts of a system do together that they would not do alone.
