  1. 1. Disease surveillance systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Baki Cakici; KTH.; SICS.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Health and medical services in society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Hälso- och sjukvård i samhället; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Epidemiology; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Epidemiologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Data- och systemvetenskap; disease surveillance; syndromic surveillance; outbreak detection; health informatics; computer science;

    Abstract : Recent advances in information and communication technologies have made the development and operation of complex disease surveillance systems technically feasible, and many systems have been proposed to interpret diverse data sources for health-related signals. Implementing these systems for daily use and efficiently interpreting their output, however, remains a technical challenge. READ MORE

  2. 2. Univariate and Multivariate Surveillance of Outbreaks

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Linus Schiöler; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; change-points; expected delay; exponential family; false alarms; generalised likelihood; inference principles; influenza; MEWMA; monitoring; multivariate; ordered regression; performance metrics; outbreak; predictive value; subjective judgment; spatial; statistical models; surveillance; tularemia;

    Abstract : In many areas there is a need to monitor observations in order to detect changes in the underlying processes as quickly as possible. The theory of statistical surveillance provides the possibility of making optimal decisions about whether a change has occurred or not based on the data available at the time of the decision.

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; target tracking; sensor control; planning; surveillance; vision sensor;

    Abstract : Vision and infrared sensors are very common in surveillance and security applications, and there are numerous examples where a critical infrastructure, e.g. a harbor, an airport, or a military camp, is monitored by video surveillance systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. An Intelligent Multi Sensor System for a Human Activities Space---Aspects of Quality Measurement and Sensor Arrangement

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Jiandan Chen; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 3D Reconstruction; Depth Measurement; Depth Reconstruction; Dither; Human Factor; Image Quality; Iso-disparity Surfaces; Multi-Sensor System; Quality Measurement; Sensor Arrangement; Surveillance; Tracking; Uncertainty;

    Abstract : In our society with its aging population, the design and implementation of a highperformance distributed multi-sensor and information system for autonomous physical services become more and more important. In line with this, this thesis proposes an Intelligent Multi-Sensor System, IMSS, that surveys a human activities space to detect and identify a target for a specific service. READ MORE

  5. 5. Rift Valley fever challenges and new insights for prevention and control using the “One Health” approach

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University
