I presented on a new avenue of methods development that my colleague Corey Schimpf (Department of Engineering Education, University at Buffalo) first identified, which he and I are calling smart and approachable methods or AM-Smart for short.
My presentation was a quick summary of a paper on the topic we have in review and its application to policy evaluation. In particular, I focused on our computational modelling software, COMPLEX-IT.
HERE IS A QUICK SUMMARY OF MY PRESENTATION

- Here is the LINK to a video of my presentation.
COMPLEX-IT, a computational modelling environment for case-based modelling and policy evaluation for non-experts.
SOMbrero for artificial intelligence
PRSM for participatory systems mapping
SAGEMODELER for learning systems dynamics through designing models
FactoShiny for statistical analysis and visualization
Occam, a Discrete Multivariate Modeling (DMM) tool based on the methodology of Reconstructability Analysis (RA).
COMPASS for comparative methods software
NetLogo Web for agent-based models
MAIA for designing multiagent models for institutional analysis
Cytoscape for modeling complex networks
Several platforms that meet many of the AM-smart attributes but may be less representative on a few attributes including
IQAir, the world's largest real-time, air-quality information platform, including a suite of tools – IQAir Earth, Map, App and AirVisual
UK CDRC Mapmaker, including indices of multiple deprivation
Gapminder for exploring global trends statistically and visually
