Predicting the Behaviour of Techno-Social Systems: How Informatics and Computing Help to Fight Off G
We live in an increasingly interconnected world of 'techno-social' systems, where infrastructures composed of different technological layers are interoperating within the social component that drives their use and development. The multi-scale nature and complexity of these networks are crucial features in understanding and managing them. In the last decade advances in performance in computer technology, data acquisition and complex networks theory allow the generation of sophisticated simulation

1.3 Warm-up activities
A variety of actions might be included in warm-up activities, and there is good reason for keeping these simple and repetitive. If the brain and muscles have to concentrate on learning new and complex patterns of movement, then this takes attention away from raising the core body temperature by 1 or 2 degrees and increasing the heart rate enough to perspire.
Movements might include:
walks gradually increasing in speed to a small run;
STAR methodology-based learning about construction accidents and their prevention
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study concerning the application of STAR-methodology-basedmachine learning to construction accidents and their prevention. A ten-stage knowledge acquisition process is presented and its individual stages described. Knowledge about construction accidents was acquired using a collection of 225 examples, based on actual accidents records. Inductive learning with a system based on the STAR-methodology was employed. This system was used in both the gen

14.12 Economic Applications of Game Theory (MIT)
Game Theory is a misnomer for Multiperson Decision Theory, the analysis of situations in which payoffs to agents depend on the behavior of other agents. It involves the analysis of conflict, cooperation, and (tacit) communication. Game theory has applications in several fields, such as economics, politics, law, biology, and computer science. In this course, I will introduce the basic tools of game theoretic analysis. In the process, I will outline some of the many applications of game theory, pr

Constructing a plaster model of the dentition - Part 3
Before the construction of a dental prosthesis (in this case a crown for a damaged tooth) can begin, a model is made from an artificial stone using an impression of the mouth taken in silicone. This video shows the process of cutting the model into pieces to allow for easy access to important areas. The section of the model where the prosthesis will be made is further prepared with a hardening solution, and a paint-on spacing lacquer. From set of videos used in Advanced Restorative Course in Sch
