A window on the world of O.R.?
The “invisibility cloak” of science fiction is now fact, albeit with limitations. O.R. could claim to have had the power of invisibility for years, though not by desire; what we want is the opposite - a high-visibility jacket! Indeed, part of the mission of the OR Society is to help make our presence more visible. But perception involves both the observed and the observer. And all of us have open and hidden parts.

How past societies responded to climate change


Washington State university archaeologists are spearheading new research using agent-based simulation to learn how past societies responded to climate change.

Their work, which links ancient climate and archaeological data, could help modern communities identify new crops and other adaptive strategies when threatened by drought, extreme weather and other environmental challenges. According to Kohler, emeritus professor of anthropology at WsU, “for every environmental calamity you can think of, there was very likely some society in human history that had to deal with it.
Computational modelling gives us an unprecedented ability to identify what worked for these people and what didn’t.”
