Godwin's Law proves true again. IMHO decisions on how to deal with current political matters shouldn't be based on the Nazis. Hitler was a unique threat.Cheers
Isn't climate change a unique threat? I'd heard that it was a "wicked problem", which by definition is essentially unique.
Yes, it is a "wicked problem", according to Dr. Curry, who says a "wicked problem" has these characteristics:1. The problem is not understood until after the formulation of a solution.2. Wicked problems have no stopping rule.3. Solutions to wicked problems are not right or wrong.4. Every wicked problem is essentially novel and unique.5. Every solution to a wicked problem is a “one shot operation.”5. Wicked problems have no given alternative solutions.
As usual for her these days, Curry's list is wrong.
I see from wikipedia that Dr. Curry's description of "wicked problem" should actually be credited to Jeffrey Conklin.
