Contents ""The National Academies Keck Futures Initiative""; ""Preface""; ""Contents""; ""General Summary""; ""Task Group Summary 1 -- How would you design the acquisition and organization of the data required to completely model human biology?""; ""Task Group Summary 2 -- What does it take to achieve a sustainable future? The problem of the commons: achieving a sustainable quality of life.""; ""Task Group Summary 3 -- How can we enhance the robustness via interconnectivity?""
""Task Group Summary 4 -- Can engineering systems and control approaches generate new strategies for altering imbalanced macrophage profiles in human disease?""""Task Group Summary 5 -- How can social networks aid our understanding of complexity?""; ""Task Group Summary 6 -- The brain is the epitome of complexity. How will understanding the complex, linked interactions among the many types of neurons in the brain lead to knowing how the brain contributes to normal function and susceptibility to neuropsychiatric disease?""
""Task Group Summary 7 -- How can we enhance robustness of engineered systems, and how can the methods of engineering analysis be extended to address issues of complexity and management in other fields?""""Task Group Summary 8 -- Ecological robustness: Is the biosphere sustainable?""; ""Task Group Summary 9 -- Can one control flow and transport in complex systems?""; ""Appendixes""; ""Preconference Webcast Tutorials""; ""Agenda""; ""Participant List""
