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,

These nontrait variables would include not only situational and environmental
factors but interactive (person x situation) ones as well. Critics of the prognostic
approach to parole and sentence decision making argue that clinical and
statistical models of prediction are generally incapable of forecasting future
behavior at reasonably accurate levels. Though this would appear to be an
overly pessimistic reading of the data on prediction, there is evidence that
dangerousness, institutional ...

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 ...
