I know, which then brings up the area of non-deterministic functions/methods/algorithms.
So for the same input you could be getting different results, or for a very small difference in input you could get a very large difference in the result.

Computer systems have tended to be seen as very much deterministic systems and with the advent of AI we hit the problem where it may not be possible to explain or justify why a result was reached because of the underlying complexity of weightings.

Which means that we would need to develop tools that could analyse and explain why a certain result had been arrived at, which would also incur a massive overhead of saving all versions of weightings/algorithms for each result. As if it was a heuristic system that changed its weightings/algorithms at will the original 'checked in' code may not have been what was used to produce this current result.
