Forum discussion group: Blog - making decisions under uncertainty
Summary: Groups often want to make the right decisions. So they spend a lot of time in the decision process itself. A better approach is to acknowledge when perfect decisions don’t exist and to incorporate the uncertainty itself into your plans.

Wiki page: Blog - Climate Model Evaluation
Summary: Critics of climate science in general, and sceptics of the statement that anthropogenic (man-made) global warming is real, often claim that climate models are wrong and cannot be trusted. But what does “wrong” mean here and what can and should be done to make models more trustworthy, from a software engineering viewpoint? In a first step, we’ll introduce some relevant technobabble.
