A Different Look at Air Traffic

As we have seen in our previous blogs, holistic benchmarking can be applied to a wide class of problems, including images. Images originating from astronomical observations, medicine, weather radar, etc. In this short blog we illustrate the case of air traffic. In particular, we examine and compare a “critical” (very high volume) traffic situation to…

Crisis Anticipation

Complexity technology establishes a radically innovative means of anticipating crises. Systems under severe stress or on a path to collapse undergo either rapid complexity fluctuations or exhibit a consistent growth of complexity. If complexity is not measured, these precious¬† crisis precursors will go unnoticed. Conventional methods are unable to identify such precursors. How does complexity-based…

Solving Extreme Problems

Extreme problems are very large-scale multi-disciplinary problems, involving thousands of variables and which cannot be solved using conventional technology. In such situations, it is impossible to determine the cause of the problem not only because of its sheer size but, most importantly, because it is frequently perceived through conventional eyes and distorted by narrow and…
