TitleParticipatory Sensing, Opinions and Collective Awareness
Author(s)Loreto, Vittorio;Haklay, Muki;Hotho, Andreas;Servedio, Vito D.P;Stumme, Gerd;Theunis, Jan;Tria, Francesca
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXXVII, 405 p. 83 illus., 70 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book introduces and reviews recent advances in the field in a comprehensive and non-technical way by focusing on the potential of emerging citizen-science and social-computation frameworks, coupled with the latest theoretical and modeling tools developed by physicists, mathematicians, computer and social scientists to analyse, interpret and visualize complex data sets. There is overwhelming evidence that the current organisation of our economies and societies is seriously damaging biological ecosystems and human living conditions in the short term, with potentially catastrophic effects in the long term. The need to re-organise the daily activities with the greatest impact ??? energy consumption, transport, housing ??? towards a more efficient and sustainable development model has recently been raised in the public debate on several global, environmental issues. Above all, this requires the mismatch between global, societal and individual needs to be addressed. Recent advances in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can trigger important transitions at the individual and collective level to achieve this aim. Based on the findings of the collaborative research network EveryAware the following developments among the emerging ICT technologies are discussed in depth in this volume: ??? Participatory sensing ??? where ICT development is pushed to the level where it can support informed action at the hyperlocal scale, providing capabilities for environmental monitoring, data aggregation and mining, as well as information presentation and sharing. ??? Web gaming, social computing and internet-mediated collaboration ??? where the Web will continue to acquire the status of an infrastructure for social computing, allowing users??? cognitive abilities to be coordinated in online communities, and steering the collective action towards predefined goals. ??? Collective awareness and decision-making ??? where the access to both personal and community data, collected by users, processed with suitable analysis tools, and re-presented in an appropriate format by usable communication interfaces leads to a bottom-up development of collective social strategies

PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2014.
DescriptionX, 201 p. 13 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe present work investigates global politics and political implications of social science and management with the aid of the latest complexity and chaos theories. Until now, deterministic chaos and nonlinear analysis have not been a focal point in this area of research. This book remedies this deficiency by utilizing these methods in the analysis of the subject matter. The authors provide the reader a detailed analysis on politics and its associated applications with the help of chaos theory, in a single edited volume

TitleNATO And Terrorism : On Scene: New Challenges for First Responders and Civil Protection
Author(s)Edwards, Frances L;Steinh??usler, Friedrich
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2007.
DescriptionXVII, 262 p : online resource
Abstract NoteInternational terrorism remains a significant threat to the peace of the world. Weapons using various materials and delivery systems have been directed against cities and infrastructure, and other materials are postulated to be usable within the near future. Some of these materials are unusual or exotic, while some are modifications of materials used daily for other purposes: biological, chemical, radiological, nuclear and explosive. These materials pose a safety challenge for first responders, slowing the response and potentially killing scarce trained personnel. This book provides information about how leading agencies across the NATO membership are preparing to confront and respond to terrorists deploying Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), Weapons of Mass Killing (WMK) and Weapons of Mass Disruption (WMDi). Based on contributions by experts from NATO member states, Israel and the Russian Federation, this book offers information on fourth generation warfare as a new challenge to first responders. It also provides a variety of insights into methods for preparing for and responding to WMD-, WMK-, and WMDi-events, using new technologies and strategies. Furthermore, the book offers solution for restoring the community to functioning after such a major terror attack. Topics include preparing, planning, operations, equipment, training and unique applications of existing technologies for countering terrorist attacks against cities and their infrastructure
