Empirical Dynamic Modelling
There is a paper by Sugihara which is the beginning of a new way of thinking about “control science”. It throws away equations, which are predictive, in favour of linking control parameters directly. It’s the first step in predicting, in the short term only, what the link between parameters are within a complex system. With these approaches we’re slowly starting to move away from the linear way of thinking about science, and moving towards embracing complexity as a key part of life, and science.
