The discussion of complex increases in complexity….

Back in October, I wrote Is Your Software Complex.  This has prompted a number of discussions in multiple venues, so it seems a good idea to look at the term “Complex” in a bit more detail.

Like many words, it has a number of distinct meanings, and when one is not clear which meaning is intended, then confusion (and related problems) is sure to occur.

Roger Sessions has been writing about one meaning of complexity for about a decade. His book Simple Architectures for Complex Enterprises created an entire field of study. Overly simplifying [and with apologies to Roger], complexity in this context is a mathematical model based on the number of nodes and interconnects between the nodes.

Dave Snowden formulated the Cynefin Framework nearly 20 years ago which categorizes systems into one of four categories: Simple, Complicated, Complex and Chaotic. Once again oversimplifying, Complex is characterized by “The complex domain represents the “unknown unknowns”. Cause and effect can only be deduced in retrospect. There are no right answers“.

Clearly, these are really different topics that simply happen to share an English word. At the same time there are interesting relationships.  Calculating the Complexity [Sessions] of a Complex [Snowden] system is unlikely to be possible, simply because of the unknowns.  Complicated or Simple [Snowden] systems are well defined, but there is not necessarily a correspondence to the resultant Complexity [Sessions].  So one can have a Complicated [Snowden] System with moderate to low complexity [Sessions], and have a Simple [Snowden] System with very high complexity [Sessions].

One approach to dealing with this is to use Cynfin/Snowden when talking about “problems” (something to be addressed) and Sessions when talking about “solutions” (the concrete resulting system).  As one starts to analyze a problem, there are sure to be “unknown unknowns”.  By the time a system has been “completed” everything about the system (at least for a point in time) is defined – and one can make the appropriate measurements and calculations necessary to evaluate the complexity.

    Radiation is a force humanity has harnessed, but also one that threatens unspeakable destruction should that harness slip. From the start, film and television have served as both a warning and a coping mechanism to help us process the invisible terrors of radiation. That Adventures of Superman episode arrives at a happy ending, but only after suggesting radiation’s irreversible effects. Superman might be doomed to a lonely existence away from the world he loves, but others would not be so lucky. In the years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, sometimes escapism didn’t offer much escape: The 1954 film Gojira (Anglicized, sort of, as Godzilla) uses a rampaging dinosaur as a stand-in for the atomic bomb. Its monster rains terror down on an unsuspecting city while causing destruction on an unfathomable scale, and director IshirЕЌ Honda made the parallels hard to ignore. Beyond the obvious monster-as-bomb parallels, it features stark images of Gojira’s hospitalized victims that echoed those of the bombs’ survivors by then familiar from news footage and described in graphic detail in John Hersey’s Hiroshima. Chernobyl Episode 6 watch online. Anyone else watch Chernobyl on hbo? I just finished the first episode out of the 3 out right now and it’s pretty good. It’s horrifying but it’s so fascinating seeing how much damage was done but i still feel like a bad person for wanting to see how they die lol. Its incredible. I feel its way scarier than any horror Ive seen purely because I know it really happened. The denialism and stubborn leadership in the early moments was so frustrating. Then when they were laying it out to Gobachev in episode 2 what the world was facing if they didnt act immediately. Amazing piece of tv. I just read the wiki about it. I think I’ll check it out tonight. I really want to watch it because I love science and this is an event that I’ve never known the details about.

Chernobyl is like the 80s nuclear horror-drama Threads crossed with the disaster-movie classic The Towering Inferno – but delivers neither the shocking realism of one nor the schlocky flair of the other. Sky Atlantic’s five-part miniseries (co-produced with HBO) dramatises the 1986 disaster at the nuclear power station in what is now Ukraine. It is a bad sign when the first few minutes of a drama raise more extra-narrative questions than answers. Did the residents have no fear of what such a sight might mean? Why are they not running around trying to flee, as we would be? The story is so unclear. At the plant, everyone is dressed indistinguishably in white uniforms, and any understanding of the situation the average viewer can glean is likely to come more from his or her knowledge of disaster-movie tropes than the action or dialogue here. The man in charge, Anatoly Dyatlov (Paul Ritter, part of a uniformly excellent parade of performances fighting to make coherence out of chaos) is largely in denial. Chernobyl 6 Episode.
    The immediate effects of nuclear exposure are depicted repeatedly and yet without fanfare, giving the feeling that this wasn’t gore for gore’s sake but instead an accurate depiction of what happens to the human body in such circumstances. But the terror came from more than just nuclear radiation exposure. It came from watching the ideological clash between scientists and the government, witnessing USSR leadership make decisions in direct opposition to scientists’ recommendations. It was utter anguish to watch their methods of denial, motivated by desires for convenience and for keeping up appearances. In a moment where climate change is somehow at the same time both a contentious political issue and an incontrovertible scientific fact, the suggestion of “opinion” with regard to damning scientific evidence nearly hit too close to home. In this way, Chernobyl seems to be perfectly suited for the times. In 2019 America, in addition to this tension around climate change, fear of nuclear weapons and the damage they can cause is never far from the political conversation. Neither is a deep mistrust of Russia, formerly the USSR. Whether Chernobyl stokes these fears or just happens to tell a true story that perfectly fits them is up for debate, but either way, this show is more than just history.
