I modelli epidemiologici predittivi sono modelli matematici che individuano alcuni parametri chiave e, analizzando i dati disponibili, propongono scenari possibili sull’andamento di un'epidemia. Prima dell'arrivo del Covid-19, questi modelli erano conosciuti soprattutto dagli addetti ai lavori: gli scienziati che li sviluppavano e i sistemi sanitari che li utilizzavano per la prevenzione e il controllo delle epidemie (come avvenuto con successo, per esempio, nei casi di Ebola e Zika).

Se vogliamo una vita normale dobbiamo imparare a vedere l’invisibile e capirne i rischi. Solo così il virus sarà sempre in un angolo. Il vero coraggio non è fare finta di niente, immaginare che tutto sia tornato alla normalità. E’ guardare negli occhi il nemico e rispettarlo

The complexity of many biological, social and technological systems stems from the richness of the interactions among their units. Over the past two decades, a great variety of complex systems has been successfully described as networks whose interacting pairs of nodes are connected by links.

An interacting group of people, the collectively active neurons in the brain, or the transportation system of a city. These are examples of complex systems, which are all intrinsically dynamical. They can be commonly interpreted as a set of entities, which interact over time and form a network structure coding the architecture of the system in hand.

Cities are not gender-neutral, nor is urban mobility. In a new paper out in Humanities and Social Science Communications, an international team of researchers, including ISI Foundation Ciro Cattuto, Laetitia Gauvin, Michele Tizzoni, Stefaan Verhulst and Simone Piaggesi, analyzes call detail records for a large cohort of anonymized mobile phone users, to reveal a gender gap in mobility.

In recent years, many studies have drawn attention to the important role of collective awareness and human behaviour during epidemic outbreaks. A number of modelling efforts have investigated the interaction between the disease transmission dynamics and human behaviour change mediated by news coverage and by information spreading in the population.
