    Drought, Risk Management, and Policy: Decision-Making Under Uncertainty - CRC Press Book Australia and the United States face very similar challenges in dealing with drought. Both countries cover a range of biophysical conditions, both are federations that provide considerable responsibility to state governments for water and land management. Explores methods for the representation and treatment of uncertainty in risk assessment. In providing guidance for practical decision-making situations concerning high-consequence technologies (e.g., nuclear, oil and gas, transport, etc.), the theories and methods studied in Uncertainty in Risk Assessment have wide-ranging applications from engineering and .

    This book provides an introduction to the challenges of decision making under uncertainty from a computational perspective. It presents both the theory behind decision making models and algorithms and a collection of example applications that range from speech recognition to aircraft collision avoidance.   Radical Uncertainty: Decision-Making Beyond the Numbers, by John Kay and Mervyn King, Norton, $30, pp Get alerts on Books when a new story is published Get alerts.

Evidence-based policy comes in for criticism where it relies on models but also supplies a false sense of certainty where none exists, or seeks out the evidence that is desired ex ante – or “cover” – to justify a policy decision. “Evidence based policy has become policy based evidence,” Kay and King opine.

Risk Management, not Crisis Management Drawing on the work of respected academic researchers and policy practitioners, the book discusses the issues associated with decision making under uncertainty and the perspectives, needs, and expectations of scientists, policy makers, and resource users.

Uncertainty: A Guide to Dealing with Uncertainty in Quantitative Risk and Policy AnalysisCited by: Radical Uncertainty is a bold, paradigm-shifting book that takes us past standard and behavioral economics, completely shifting our understanding of the role economics can play in decision-making.

We can never have the information required to optimize. Decision Making under Deep Uncertainty: From Theory to Practice is divided into four parts.

Part I presents five approaches for designing strategic plans under deep uncertainty: Robust Decision Making, Dynamic Adaptive Planning, Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways, Info-Gap Decision Theory, and Engineering Options Analysis/5(9).

Throughout history we have developed a variety of ways of coping with the radical uncertainty that defines our lives. This incisive and eye-opening book draws on biography, history, mathematics, economics and philosophy to highlight the most successful - and most short-sighted - methods of dealing with an unknowable future/5(18).

Rarely is a book’s publication as well-timed as John Kay and Mervyn King’s “Radical Uncertainty: Decision-Making Beyond the Numbers.” We’re in the grip of a global pandemic that we don’t understand and must make immediate choices that balance the demands of our health against the needs of our economy.

The new book Radical Uncertainty: Decision-making for an unknowable future, by Mervyn King and John Kay, did that. Not, it should be said, on purpose, or even directly.

But the implication of its existence – that these authors thought that this book needed to be written – means there is something terribly wrong : Tom Chivers.

Book Abstract: Many important problems involve decision making under uncertainty -- that is, choosing actions based on often imperfect observations, with unknown outcomes.

Designers of automated decision support systems must take into account the various sources of uncertainty while balancing the multiple objectives of the system. The term “policy analysis” describes scientific evaluations of the impacts of past public policies and predictions of the outcomes of potential future policies.

A prevalent practice has been to report policy analysis with incredible certitude. That is, exact predictions of policy outcomes are routine, while expressions of uncertainty are by: 7. We don’t know what the future holds, but we still need to make far reaching decisions. Unlike F.

Hayek, who said the he preferred true but imperfect knowledge to a pretence of exact knowledge that is likely to be false, we seek certainties that don’t exist and invent knowledge that we can’t have to support our decision-making. In Radical Uncertainty, John Kay and Mervyn King, two.

Robust decision-making (RDM) is an iterative decision analytic framework that aims to help identify potential robust strategies, characterize the vulnerabilities of such strategies, and evaluate the tradeoffs among them.

RDM focuses on informing decisions under conditions of what is called "deep uncertainty", that is, conditions where the parties to a decision do not know or do not .Reserve’s periodic “Beige Book” releases from (first release) tosuggesting that Beige Book survey respondents also perceive a rise in policy uncertainty.
