Community network mapping: just get going!

Making CommunitySense

Towards the idea that complexity IS a theory of change

Chris Corrigan

While that is helpful for situations in which you have a high degree of control and influence, and in which the nature of the problem is well ordered and predictable, these are not useful with complex emergent problems. They are non-linear, unpredictable and emergent.

The Technologies I’ll Miss

How to Save the World

For tiny apartment kitchens (counter-top stoves, toaster ovens, kettles, coffee-makers, blenders, and yes, even microwave ovens), for emergency first aid (heating pads etc), and for unmatched pleasure (vibes etc) it’s hard to imagine how we ever did without these labour-saving devices.

On the Shoulders of Giants

How to Save the World

I like the bit about us being emergent properties of the creatures that make us up, and about the brain being a feature-detection system that evolved for their benefit, not ‘ours’ But the ending makes no sense at all.”

The limits of certainty

Chris Corrigan

But the problems that AI is now be deployed upon are complex and emergent in nature, and therefore instead of producing certainty and replicability, AI is being asked to provide probabilistic forecasts of the future.

How complexity principles can inform participatory process design

Chris Corrigan

The notion of “emergence” is used to describe this aspect. The presence of emergent properties does not provide an argument against causality, only against deterministic forms of prediction. That is the way to address an emergent phenomenon. Cynefin Emergence Facilitation
