Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling Applications in Homeland by H. T. Banks, Carlos Castillo-Chavez

By H. T. Banks, Carlos Castillo-Chavez

Globalization and the opportunity of bioterrorist acts have highlighted the urgent want for the improvement of theoretical and useful mathematical frameworks that could be priceless in our systemic efforts to count on, hinder, and reply to acts of destabilization.

Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling purposes in native land protection collects the distinct contributions of chosen teams of specialists from the fields of biostatistics, keep watch over idea, epidemiology, and mathematical biology who've engaged within the improvement of frameworks, versions, and mathematical tools had to handle a number of the urgent demanding situations posed through acts of terror. the 10 chapters of this quantity contact on a wide variety of matters within the subfields of biosurveillance, agroterrorism, bioterror reaction logistics, planned unlock of organic brokers, influence evaluate, and the unfold of enthusiast behaviors.

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence by National Research Council, Division on Engineering and

By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Mathematics, and Applications Commission on Physical Sciences, Panel on Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence

The concentration of this document is on synthetic intelligence (AI) and human-computer interface (HCI) expertise. Observations, conclusions, and proposals concerning AI and HCI are offered by way of six grand problem parts which serve to spot key medical and engineering matters and possibilities. bankruptcy 1 offers the panel's definitions of those and similar phrases. bankruptcy 2 offers the panel's normal observations and suggestions relating to AI and HCI. eventually, bankruptcy three discusses machine technology, AI, and HCI when it comes to the six chosen "grand problem" components and 3 time horizons, that's, brief time period (within the subsequent 2 years), midterm (2 to six years), and long-term (more than 6 years from now) and provides extra thoughts in those areas.
