Although fortuitous, the coincidence of questions related to COVID-19 and the themes of my presentation will enable me to introduce this new discipline that is human systems integration (HSI) in a more tangible manner, in the sense that the management of the unexpected opens the field of risk taking seen from the angle of abduction. We will therefore deal with HSI in its broadest sense. HSI is at the crossroads of several disciplines, including psychology, social sciences, biology, mathematics, computer science and the engineering sciences. Models from these initial disciplines are already and will be selected and modified to form more integrated theories. The resulting basic framework will be used to propose solutions to improve the flexibility of our sociotechnical systems (e.g., medical systems, mobility systems, education systems, energy, defense and many others).
