Uncertainty, Lags and Nonlinearity: Challenges to Governance in a Turbulent World
Prof. Homer-Dixon looks at systems displaying high levels of uncertainty. Using the example of climate change, he asks whether standard "management" approaches used by policymakers are enough or if we must find new approaches in times of uncertainty. Global financial, climate, energy, and food challenges exhibit similar characteristics - all emerge from systems exhibiting high levels of uncertainty, countless unknown unknowns, time lags, threshold effects, occasional chaotic behavior, and someti
HST.722J Brain Mechanisms for Hearing and Speech (MIT)

2.500 Desalination and Water Purification (MIT)
Water supply is a problem of worldwide concern: more than 1 billion people do not have reliable access to clean drinking water. Water is a particular problem for the developing world, but scarcity also impacts industrial societies. Water purification and desalination technology can be used to convert brackish ground water or seawater into drinking water. The challenge is to do so sustainably, with minimum cost and energy consumption, and with appropriately accessible technologies. This subject w
