The modern world is fraught with risk, from natural disasters and terrorist attacks, to financial crises and pandemics. Assessing and planning for these risks can be done with a conventional human-based approach but this often requires large amounts of time and resources. Surveillance Technologies and Early Warning Systems: Data Mining Applications for Risk Detection has never been more important, as the research this book presents an alternative to conventional surveillance and risk assessment. This book is a multidisciplinary excursion comprised of data mining, early warning systems, information technologies and risk management and explores the intersection of these components in problematic domains. It offers the ability to apply the most modern techniques to age old problems allowing for increased effectiveness in the response to future, eminent, and present risk.
