Warm Data Lab vie päätöksenteon tietotukea tulevaisuuteen

Kompleksisissa järjestelmissä ja niihin liittyvässä yhteiskunnallisessa päätöksenteossa tarvitaan kykyä monien näkökulmien yhtäaikaiseen dialogiin ja kokonaisuuden hahmottamiseen. Erilaisten tiedon muotojen, asiantuntijuuden ja osallisuuden on kohdattava yhä synergisemmin. Nora Bateson, tilaisuuden vetäjä, on lähestynyt tätä kohtaamista ja vuorovaikutusta käsitteellä “Warm Data”.

Päivän tarkoituksena on tutkia ja ymmärtää, miten voisimme lisätä edellytyksiä kokonaisvaltaisemmalle päätöksenteolle ja toiminnalle kompleksisessa toimintaympäristössä. Sovellamme Batesonin kehittämää Warm data -lab -menetelmää ja keskustelemme päätöksenteon tietotuen tulevaisuudesta. Pohdimme, miten tartumme lupaaviin lähestymistapoihin ja parannamme edellytyksiä ottaa niitä laajamittaisemmin käyttöön.



Mitä on Warm Data?
Käsitteellä Warm Data Nora Bateson kuvaa tietoa, joka syntyy tilannekohtaisesti erilaisten näkökulmien ja kontekstien asettuessa läpinäkyvään vuoropuheluun. Voimme saada tietoa ja ymmärrystä siitä, miten asioiden vastavuoroinen kytkeytyneisyys vaikuttaa havaintoihimme, päätöksentekoomme ja toimintaan.

Warm Data Lab on työskentelyprosessi, joka mahdollistaa moninäkökulmaisen ja rajoja ylittävän tietämyksen kehittymisen. Toimintatapana se tarjoaa mahdollisuuden lähestyä kompleksisia kysymyksiä luomalla ekosysteemitasoista integroivaa dialogia. (ks. lyhyt video lähestymistavasta).

Nora Bateson on International Batesonian Institute’n perustaja. Instituutti tutkii kompleksisiin systeemeihin sisältyviä kytkentöjä, liittyen mm. ympäristöön, talouteen, sosiaaliseen muutoksen, terveyteen, koulutukseen ja taiteeseen. Instituutti kannustaa ja käynnistää erityisesti projekteja, jotka yhdistävät erilaisia konteksteja.

  1. 1. Risk and Possibility "Traditionally, risk is assessed as the product of probability and damage. But when the damage is beyond quantification, this process breaks down. With existential risks, learning from mistakes is not an option, and we cannot necessarily rely on the institutions, moral norms, or social attitudes developed from our experience with managing other types of risk. What is needed now is an approach to risk management which is fundamentally different from conventional practice. It would focus on the high-end, unprecedented​possibilities, instead of assessing middle-of-the-road​probabilities on the basis of historic experience.” --Ian Dunlop and David Spratt May 2019 From the paper: Existential Climate-Related Security Risk

  7. 7. “Darwin proposed a theory of natural selection and evolution in which the unit of survival was either the family line or the species or subspecies or something of the sort. But today, it is quite obvious that this is not the unit of survival in the real biological world. The unit of survival is organism plus environment. We are learning by bitter experience that the organism which destroys in its environment destroys itself.” (G. Bateson page 491) Where is the edge of the “self’” --?
  8. 8. “At present there is no existing science whose special interest is the combining of pieces of information. But I shall argue that the evolutionary process must depend upon such double increments of information. Every evolutionary step is an addition of information to an already existing system. Because this is so, the combinations, harmonies, and discords between successive pieces and layers of information will present many problems of survival and determine many directions of change.” – G.Bateson

  10. 10. What are the Patterns That Connect?
  11. 11. WHY WARM DATA IS IMPORTANT In order to interface with any a complex system without disrupting the circuitry of the interdependencies that give it its integrity we must look at the spread of relationships that make the system robust. Using only analysis of statistical data will offer conclusions that can point to actions that are out of sync with the complexity of the situation. Information without interrelationality is likely to lead us toward actions that are misinformed, thereby creating further destructive patterns.

  13. 13. Interdependent
  14. 14. I am a unique entity framing the world through the only version of my filtering and sense making processes… I am me. There is no place in me, no aspect of me that is uninfluenced, unconnected, or untouched by my contexts ( language, culture, expereince, education, genetics and so on). I am me & I am not me. The Paradox of Agency

  16. 16. Today’s Question What is well-being? ….in a changing world?
  17. 17. Transcontextual Description Transcontextual research presumes that no complex system is viable in a single contextual set of relationships. Therefore, this research requires inquiry that compares and describes multiple contextual interdependencies. It is difficult if not impossible to find a subject to study in the living world that is definable within a single context. Transcontextual research offers multiple descriptions of the way in which a ‘subject’ is nested in many contexts. This information provides descriptions of interactions that seem to erase the boundaries of what we might have previously considered to be parts and wholes.
