forces the water resource planners to deal with the distant future, which is not
possible without long-term, mediumterm and also short-term predictions. Systems
science, therefore, includes prognostics as a scientific field that investigates the
general principles of development, methods of prediction for arbitrary objects and
the laws involved in process of making predictions (Gvishiani and Lishichkin,
1968). The causal dependence between social development and water demands

Prognostic factors serve mainly as the basis for making individually tailored
predictions. Research conclusions are based on at least. a partial. understanding
of underlying mechanisms and pathways, but they apply separately to each
individual patient. The flavor of factor-centered prognostic research is perhaps
more comfortably allied with viewing medicine as a science. The flavor of patient-

Underlying this complexity, there are probably a small number of "rules" or
parameters that govern the initiation of the transformation process, though
progression of this process is marked by randomness and chaos, making specific
outcomes difficult to predict from an original set of conditions. In many respects,
assessing clinical outcome using present biomarkers is analogous to planetary
weather forecasting using only barometric pressure and wind direction. The
complexity and ...

s (2014) distinction between diagnostic (retrospective) and prognostic (
prospective) uncertainty. Explanatory predictions seek to corroborate (or refute) a
prior hypothesis, whereas decision making predictions are concerned with
bringing about (or avoiding) certain future states. Explanatory prediction is an
activity that falls squarely in the domain of Kuhn's normal science. It is also the
means by which Popperian falsification succeeds in rejecting the- ories when the

The improvement in prognostic ability offered by artificial neural networks over
regression or statistical methods, may be clinically important for therapy, clinical
trials, patient information, and quality assurance. In decision-making regarding
therapy, it may allow the efficient separation of patients with a poor prognosis (
who require therapy) from patients with an excellent prognosis (who require little
or no therapy), and it may predict who will respond to a particular therapy. In
clinical trials ...
