Analysis decisions and society
The Centre for Analysis, Decisions and Society (CADS) represents a novel and highly interesting feature of Human Technopole, though considerably different in nature from the other Human Technopole Research Centres, it equally shares with them a strong focus on human biology at the molecular scale.
A joint project with the Politecnico di Milano, the Centre for Analysis, Decisions and Society will operate using advanced (big) data analysis techniques, including statistical and artificial intelligence methods, to analyse and integrate large-scale data deriving from heterogeneous sources (both internal to HT and external), such as clinical data, socioeconomic data, etc., mainly in the areas of precision medicine, healthcare and health economics.
The Centre for Analysis, Decisions and Society is envisioned to transfer this knowledge by providing analysis and advice to different stakeholders, but in particular policymakers, as the design and implementation of models to evaluate the socio-economic impact on the national health system of various aspects of precision medicine can be important tools to help design policy to optimise efforts in this area.

Data mining application to healthcare fraud detection: a two-step unsupervised clustering method for outlier detection with administrative databases
Being the recipient for huge public and private investments, the healthcare sector results to be an interesting target for fraudsters. Nowadays, the availability of a great amount of data makes it possible to tackle this issue with the adoption of data mining techniques. This approach can provide more efficient control of processes in terms of […]

Connected from the Outside: The Role of US Regions in Promoting the Integration of the European Research System
Considerable efforts have been deployed by the European Union to create an integrated Research & Development area. In this paper, we focus on the structure and evolution of the European collaboration network as reflected by patent data. We study patent networks representing collaborations between inventors located in different geographic areas. Existing studies seem to indicate […]

In this paper we propose a methodological framework for modeling information carried out by a longitudinal process by means of functional data, within a survival framework targeting the time-to-event process of interest. In particular, the longitudinal process is represented by the compensator of a marked point process the recurrent events are supposed to derive from. […]

We illustrate a fewrecent ideas of Object Oriented Spatial Statistics (O2S2), focusing on the problem of kriging prediction in situations where a global second order stationarity assumption for the random field generating the data is not justifiable or the space domain of the field is complex. By localizing the analysis through the Random Domain Decomposition […]

In response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, several national governments have applied lockdown restrictions to reduce the infection rate. Here we perform a massive analysis on near–real-time Italian mobility data provided by Facebook to investigate how lockdown strategies affect economic conditions of individuals and local governments. We model the change in mobility as […]
