Cynefin St David’s Day 2019 (5 of 5)

Dave Snowden

I’ve been playing with options here on trains to and from particularly dark productions of tragic operas and the experience may have influenced by thinking. When I was working on the HBR Cynefin article Mary and I decided to rehabilitate it and for the domains of obvious, complicated and complex I have made no changes. Complex gets more interesting as we don’t know what we don’t know but its not inherently unknowable.

Dave Snowden

Key to Cynefin is the idea that three ontological states or order, complexity and chaos are subject to phase shift boundaries. The domain shifts between the ordered and complex domains and between those of complexity and chaos are generally matters of choice and with choice come consequences. His first version showed chaotic as a lower level than complex but be changed that after I pinged him. Between complex and complicated (one way).

Beyond Machine Learning: Capturing Cause-and-Effect Relationships

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Deep learning is a powerful statistical technique for classifying patterns using large training data sets and multi-layer AI neural networks. Machine learning is a statistical modelling technique, like data mining and business analytics , which finds and correlates patterns between inputs and outputs without necessarily capturing their cause-and-effect relationships. Why are there such universal human activity patterns?

To a newer culture, older cultures appear to be primitive, lacking complexity. The challenge in developing what Lene Rachel Andersen calls ‘ metamodernity ‘ is in taking the positive aspects of previous human cultures in order to create a global culture that can deal with the complexity of technology, climate emergency, and evolving political situations.

Dimensions of difficulty

Clark Quinn

So one of the dimensions is clearly complexity. Connecting and operating a simple device isn’t very complex. Addressing complex product complaints can be much more complex. Certainly we need more support if it’s more complex. For instance, flight errors are hopefully rare (the systems are robust), typically involve complex situations (the interactions between the systems mean engines affect flight controls), and have big consequences!

#AI4Good: What Your Nonprofit Needs To Know About AI

Beth Kanter

AI for Good: Nonprofit Trends and Use Cases is an e-book published by Salesforce.Org that provides a good primer about AI, a few basic examples of how nonprofits are using Salesforce.Org product, Einstein, and useful tips on ethical AI. Now instead of only relying on subjective responses, scientists can focus on patterns within the visual cortex using AI to better understand a subject’s feelings.

The Social Network Is the Computer

Our increasingly complex social interactions have been the critical factor in the exponential increase of human cranial capacity over the past few million years. “But today something is different.

Why Some AI Efforts Succeed While Many Fail

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Winning with AI , - a 2019 report based on a survey jointly conducted by the MIT Sloan Management Review and the Boston Consulting Group , - found that 90% of respondents agree that AI represents a business opportunity for their company. To help answer these questions, the study looked for patterns in the survey data and in the executive interviews to uncover what the companies that are succeeding with AI are doing.

philosophical behaviourism - this form of behaviourism allows that there are internal states but notes that they can only be described in terms of external behavior; phenomena such as intentions, desires and beliefs are described as dispositions the causes of which are complex and not reducible to these mental phenomena. But education (like most of the social sciences) is a complex discipline. 2019) which caught my eye. This is a common pattern for systematic reviews.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

2019) Ethical Codes As Standards of Conduct While ethics commonly applies to people in general, there is a specific class of ethics that applies to people by virtue of their membership in a professional group. Modern analytics is based mostly in machine learning and neural networks, and these in turn provide algorithms for pattern recognition, regression, and clustering. 2019) Similar functionality is also provided by IMS Global’s Caliper learning analytics (Oakleaf,,
