Big Data in Complex Systems: Challenges and Opportunities

Much data today is not natively in structured format; for example, tweets and blogs are weakly structured pieces of text, while images and video are structured for storage and display, but not for semantic content and search. Therefore transforming such content into a structured format for later analysis is a major challenge. CriticaMente. Bruno Ballardini, Il Fatto Quotidiano. Home. Il cinghiale digitale.

Our support systems such as food, water, energy and nature are increasingly tightly coupled, propelled by a population increasing in numbers, inequality and in wealth.

Advise - Resilience

Add to this the unbalances from climate change and it is clear that increased turbulence is here to stay. As a consequence, we need to balance our drive for ever increasing efficiency, with enhancing resilience to turbulence. Resilience is a simple, yet far reaching concept: a complex system is resilient if it can absorb a disturbance, while at the same time learning and adapting to become better system. Like a grain of sand in an oyster, the disturbances not only challenge the system, but they are at the same time its education.

Increasingly gaining traction as a richer and more precise concept than sustainability, resilience is both actionable and enlightening.

The work grounds on the deeping of a case study: the Municipality of Siano, in the Campania Region (Italy), located in a valley area often subjected to hydro-geological events. More specifically the examined area is periodically affected by significant hydro-geological events that trigger rapidly evolving destructive phenomena (mud flows).

"This contribution deals with contradictions between recovery planning and urban masterplanning in the case of the urban mega-disaster in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. While recovery planning is intended to enable a 'return to normal', urban master land use planning is aimed at an alteration or transformation of a given situation. In the case of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 the Citywide Recovery Plan had to adapt to the aftermath of disaster, while the 2030 Masterplan advocates growth and improvement.

Which contradictions emerge, an what role do existing conditions as well as the scale of disaster play for this process? Untitled. Tony Stallins. Tyler Felgenhauer - Publications.
