QCM is Artificial Intuition.

The Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT) has been conceived around a complexity metric discovered in the early 2000s by J. Marczyk and his team. Based on the theory, a technology has been built – Quantitative Complexity Management (QCM). Both software and hardware solutions have been developed. QCM is a new form of Artificial Intelligence that reaches…

Complexity and the Importance of Structure

The evolution of man, ever since the first hominids appeared, has been driven and characterized by numerous factors of diverse nature, such as geography, climate, ethnicity, superstitions and, with time, religion, art, science and philosophy, just to name a few.  However, the common thread that may be observed throughout history is the formation of structures…

Multimorbidity – The AFFIRMO Project

AFFIRMO is a recently funded Horizon 2020 five-year research project. Multimorbidity is a common condition in older age, and can substantially influence individuals’ health and quality of life, making management more difficult. A single-disease approach with fragmented care is still prevalent in current healthcare systems despite multimorbidity representing a heterogeneous spectrum of disease combination(s). On…

Complexity and Complexity Bounds

A fundamental property of the complexity metric developed by Ontonix is that it has bounds – a lower and an upper bound. This means that it cannot assume infinite values (both negative and positive). If it could it wouldn’t be a good metric. All good metrics satisfy the laws of physics For example, a temperature…

Measuring and Tracking Complexity

Jacek Marczyk Ph.D., Balachandra Deshpande Ph.D. (2007) 1.   Introduction The study of complex systems such as the biosphere, gene expression data or the climate, has led to an increased understanding of their behaviour and characteristics and only now are we appreciating their overwhelming complexity. One common denominator of all these systems is, obviously, complexity. However,…
