Bayesian Network Modeling Applied to Feline Calicivirus Infection Among Cats in Switzerland

Subsistence farming, including shifting cultivation, has progressively declined in recent decades with the rise of agricultural commodity production Pingali , van Vliet et al. This trend is part of a global social-ecological transformation [1] in rural areas, entailing agricultural expansion and intensification, and often coupled with market integration, urbanization, migration, and regulatory changes De Koninck Such agricultural transitions have frequently occurred in agricultural frontiers, as export-oriented intensive agriculture has expanded into regions previously used for subsistence and low-intensity farming Hirsch , van Vliet et al. Transitions from subsistence to market-oriented cash crop production frequently raise farm incomes de Janvry and Sadoulet , Vang Rasmussen et al. Farmers may also face reduced provision of ecosystem services, insecure access to land, displacement, and food insecurity Wood et al.

Agricultural intensification often has complex effects on a wide range of environmental and economic values, presenting planners with challenging decisions for optimising sustainable benefits. Bayesian Belief Networks BBNs can be used as a decision-support tool for evaluating the influence of development scenarios across a range of values. A BBN was developed to guide decisions on water abstraction and irrigation-driven land use intensification in the Hurunui River catchment, New Zealand. The BBN examines the combined effects of different irrigation water sources and four land development scenarios, with and without a suite of on-farm mitigations, on ground and surface water quality, key socioeconomic values i.

Martin Zimmermann, Michaela Fischer; Impact assessment of water and nutrient reuse in hydroponic systems using Bayesian Belief Networks. Journal of Water Reuse and Desalination 1 December ; 10 4 : — Water-saving agricultural practices can reduce negative environmental impacts in water-scarce regions all over the world. This study deals with an innovation that combines hydroponic crop production and municipal wastewater reuse for irrigation purposes. The research question was what impacts such hydroponic water reuse systems have on product confidence, economic viability, groundwater recharge, biodiversity and landscape quality. It should also be clarified under which conditions and with which measures these systems can be sustainable. To answer these questions, a number of generic hydroponic water reuse systems were modeled and assessed using a Bayesian Belief Network that included both numerical values and expert knowledge.

Bayesian network-based framework for exposure-response study design and interpretation

Metrics details. Conventional environmental-health risk-assessment methods are often limited in their ability to account for uncertainty in contaminant exposure, chemical toxicity and resulting human health risk. Exposure levels and toxicity are both subject to significant measurement errors, and many predicted risks are well below those distinguishable from background incident rates in target populations. To address these issues methods are needed to characterize uncertainties in observations and inferences, including the ability to interpret the influence of improved measurements and larger datasets. Here we develop a Bayesian network BN model to quantify the joint effects of measurement errors and different sample sizes on an illustrative exposure-response system. Categorical variables are included in the network to describe measurement accuracies, actual and measured exposures, actual and measured response, and the true strength of the exposure-response relationship. Network scenarios are developed by fixing combinations of the exposure-response strength of relationship none, medium or strong and the accuracy of exposure and response measurements low, high, perfect.

Bayesian networks BN have recently experienced increased interest and diverse applications in numerous areas, including economics, risk analysis and assets and liabilities management, AI and robotics, transportation systems planning and optimization, political science analytics, law and forensic science assessment of agency and culpability, pharmacology and pharmacogenomics, systems biology and Bayesian networks BN have recently experienced increased interest and diverse applications in numerous areas, including economics, risk analysis and assets and liabilities management, AI and robotics, transportation systems planning and optimization, political science analytics, law and forensic science assessment of agency and culpability, pharmacology and pharmacogenomics, systems biology and metabolomics, psychology, and policy-making and social programs evaluation. This strong and varied response results not least from the fact that plausibilistic Bayesian models of structures and processes can be robust and stable representations of causal relationships. Additionally, BNs' amenability to incremental or longitudinal improvement through incorporating new data affords extra advantages compared to traditional frequentist statistical methods. Contributors to this volume elucidate various new developments in these aspects of BNs. By Diego R. Faria, Cristiano Premebida, Luis J.

The article presents a procedure for assessing the quality of the environment, using eggshells of birds as a biomarker implemented into a Bayesian network. An environmental quality index EQI was proposed and calculated on the basis of local quality indicators. Experimental data on concentrations of toxic elements in grey heron Ardea cinerea eggshells biomarker of river valleys were used to determine the empirical variables nodes and the probability distributions on the set of these variables. A probabilistic graphical model represents a multitude of relationships between variables in a system that enables the prediction of EQI. The model presented is a useful tool for environmental quality management.

Environmental Bioindication Studies by Bayesian Network with Use of Grey Heron as Model Species

Bayesian network BN modeling is a rich and flexible analytical framework capable of elucidating complex veterinary epidemiological data. It is a graphical modeling technique that enables the visual presentation of multi-dimensional results while retaining statistical rigor in population-level inference. Using previously published case study data about feline calicivirus FCV and other respiratory pathogens in cats in Switzerland, a full BN modeling analysis is presented.

In the broad sense, the Bayesian networks BN are probabilistic graphical models that possess unique methodical features to model dependencies in complex networks, such as forward and backward propagation inference of disruptions. BNs have transitioned from an emerging topic to a growing research area in supply chain SC resilience and risk analysis. As a result, there is an acute need to review existing literature to ascertain recent developments and uncover future areas of research.

A Bayesian Network Model for Predicting Post-stroke Outcomes With Available Risk Factors

 Позвоните в банк данных! - приказала Сьюзан.  - Предупредите их о вирусе.


Вокруг нее было черно от нитей, готовых ринуться внутрь. Справа бесконечной чередой мелькали кадры, запечатлевшие последние минуты Танкадо: выражение отчаяния на его лице, вытянутую руку, кольцо, поблескивающее на солнце. Сьюзан смотрела на эти кадры, то выходившие из фокуса, то вновь обретавшие четкость. Она вглядывалась в глаза Танкадо - и видела в них раскаяние. Он не хотел, чтобы это зашло так далеко, - говорила она .

Он не мог отказаться. - Ты права, - проворчал Стратмор.  - Поэтому я его и попросил. Я не мог позволить себе роскошь… - Директор знает, что вы послали в Испанию частное лицо. - Сьюзан, - сказал Стратмор, уже теряя терпение, - директор не имеет к этому никакого отношения.

Он слишком долго обделял .

Бедолага. Беккер ничего не сказал и продолжал разглядывать пальцы умершего. - Вы уверены, что на руке у него не было перстня.

Он не дал волю гневу, а лишь преисполнился решимости. Когда службы безопасности выдворяли его из страны, он успел сказать несколько слов Стратмору, причем произнес их с ледяным спокойствием: - Мы все имеем право на тайну. И я постараюсь это право обеспечить. ГЛАВА 7 Мозг Сьюзан лихорадочно работал: Энсей Танкадо написал программу, с помощью которой можно создавать шифры, не поддающиеся взлому. Она никак не могла свыкнуться с этой мыслью.
