Prediction and prescription in the science of the artificial
information science and complexity
Information science and computer sciences are two realms of the sciences of the artificial that are faced with new forms of complexity. From the point of view of the content, there are new and increasingly more complex informative needs that are being demanded with a growing intensity. From the perspective of agents, there are new forms of interactions between the individuals and the information systems. This relation between users and information brings about new organizations that are strengthened through new advances in technology. Therefore there are inner and outer factors related to the new forms of complexity.
