Traditional statistical modelling helps researchers accommodate and understand the level of uncertainty associated with predictions made by models, when compared with empirical data. This is useful when researching complicated systems, that is systems that can be understood well enough to obtain predictions. More recently, however, statistical modelling techniques have been used for dealing with complex, adaptive systems that are often unpredictable and exhibit emergent behaviours.
