Integrating the concepts of foresight and prediction for improved disaster risk management

Christoph Aubrecht, Sérgio Freire, Josef Fröhlich, Beatrice Rath, Klaus Steinnocher
2011 International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management  
Active and transparent communication and participation is seen as the key for successfully implementing risk governance.  ...  Finally, the basic framework of risk governance is considered for integrating foresight and prediction and thus lifting disaster management to the next level.  ...  Risk analysis as an integral part of disaster management is composed of hazard and vulnerability assessment. Both aspects are highly sensitive to spatial and temporal variation.  ...

Landscape epidemiology: An emerging perspective in the mapping and modelling of disease and disease risk factors

Nnadi Nnaemeka Emmanuel, Nimzing Loha, Mark Ojogba Okolo, Onyedibe Kenneth Ikenna
2011 Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Disease  
The current review describes the evolution of landscape epidemiology. As a science, it also highlights the various methods of mapping and modeling diseases and disease risk factors.  ...  The key tool to characterize landscape is satellite remote sensing and these data are used as inputs to drive spatial models of transmission risk.  ...  Pavlovsky's historical concept of landscape epidemiology consists of three basic observations: first, diseases tend to be limited geographically; second, this spatial variation arises from underlying variations  ...

Strategy for Disease Diagnosis, Progression Prediction, Risk Group Stratification and Treatment—Case of COVID-19

Mauno Vihinen
2020 Frontiers in Medicine  
Evidence-based thresholds can be applied to the pathogenicity model and used for diagnosis as well as for early detection of patients in risk of developing the most severe forms of the disease.  ...  A novel strategy is presented for reliable diagnosis and progression prediction of diseases with special attention to COVID-19 pandemic.  ...  Even extended longitudinal data will be beneficial for detecting long-term follow up and prediction of cases at the risk of harmful sequelae.  ...

Geological disposal of nuclear waste: II. From laboratory data to the safety analysis – Addressing societal concerns

Bernd Grambow, Sophie Bretesché
2014 Applied Geochemistry  
Safety analyses have demonstrated that the risk, as measured by exposure to radiation, will be of little consequence.  ...  Safety analysis is treated in its social and temporal dimensions. This perspective provides new insights into the societal dimension of scenarios and risk analysis.  ...  Ewing and an unknown reviewer for careful and critical reviews of this paper.  ...

Predicting the Risk Genes of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Yenching Lin, Srinivasulu Yerukala Sathipati, Shinn-Ying Ho
2021 Frontiers in Genetics  
The top identified temporospatial regions of the brain for risk gene prediction included the posteroventral parietal cortex at 13 post-conception weeks feature.  ...  ASD-Risk used an optimal feature selection algorithm called inheritable bi-objective combinatorial genetic algorithm to identify the brain temporospatial regions for prediction of the risk genes of ASD  ...  Hence, prediction methods are necessary to identify multiple genetic markers that provide useful information for early stage detection and ASD diagnosis.  ...

A spatial time-to-event approach for estimating associations between air pollution and preterm birth

Howard H. Chang, Brian J. Reich, Marie Lynn Miranda
2012 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series C: Applied Statistics  
The paper describes a Bayesian spatial discrete time survival model to estimate the effect of air pollution on the risk of preterm birth.  ...  Time varying exposures can arise either in short-term lagged exposures due to seasonality in air pollution or long-term cumulative exposures due to changes in length of exposure.  ...  For example, this does not allow for some regions to have elevated risk very early in pregnancy but low risk late in the pregnancy.  ...
