Caption: Another catalyst effort is attempting to unravel complex causal learning. Such learning is critical across science and engineering, notes the team lead by Hari Narayanan of Auburn University and colleagues. Yet the workings of complex systems may seem opaque because of the abstract thought required, which may challenge prevailing beliefs. Here we see an illustration: a concept map of an aquarium drawn by a child.
