Policy-relevant scientific models are typically expected to make empirically valid predictions about policy-relevant problems. What are the consequences of shaping our science-policy interface in this way? Here, it is argued that the theoretically insecure simulation modelling pioneered within artificial life is emblematic of an important alternative approach with significance for policy-relevant modelling.
