Re: Okay, this is admittedly a very science-fictiony idea ...
On further thought triggered by another discussion this morning: if you can retrocreate a compatible OSS/BSS legacy system, inexplicability may be a feature, not a bug. It at least tells you accurately that you don't have a clear idea of how your business is doing what it does in that area.  Furthermore, to do create that inexplicable but very accurate simulator, in effect you create a possible generator for a giant decision table, and you could eventually extract rules and structures from that.

In effect, a major effort for the next couple decades may be datamining not so much the data as the software from the past 60 years.

Re: OSS and BSS
OSS/BSS now allows systems to track performance and ensure service level agreements are met.

This is a great link to thebook "What is OSS" and provides OSS use cases http://www.ossline.com/the-guide-to-modern-oss.

The work Ericsson is doing on OSS/BSS is very impressive. Here is a link to their work https://www.ericsson.com/ourportfolio/telecom-operators/operations-and-business-support-systems.

It doesn't seem profitable for Vimpelcom to except that they can generate the same amount of revenue halting selilng data and voice calls to offering an app based platform that allows users to communicate for free with revenue share through partners.

But it occurs to me that you could design a machine-learning algorithm so that a new program would "train" by first reviewing the inputs and outputs from the legacy system until it could predict the output from the input with a very high degree of accuracy, and then train further by having it submit generated test data to the legacy system and compare its predictions to the outputs.  Eventually you'd end up with something that would pass the "Turing Test" of being indistinguishable from the legacy system -- and if you developed it in a properly controlled environment, it would also be fuly compatible with the new systems and architecture.


Only one little catch: imitator-learning systems like that generally have to abandon explicability.  That is, it would have all the right rules and do all the right things, but it wouldn't be able to tell you what rules it was following or how it knew to do anything.


Time once again to welcome our new electronic overlords, I guess.
