Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013
TLDR
The global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980-2013 is estimated using a spatiotemporal Gaussian process regression model to estimate prevalence with 95% uncertainty intervals (UIs). Expand
A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990–2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease
TLDR
This work estimated deaths and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) attributable to the independent effects of 67 risk factors and clusters of risk factors for 21 regions in 1990 and 2010 and calculated the burden attributable to each risk factor exposure compared with the theoretical-minimum-risk exposure. Expand
Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990–2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010
TLDR
The results for 1990 and 2010 supersede all previously published Global Burden of Disease results and highlight the importance of understanding local burden of disease and setting goals and targets for the post-2015 agenda taking such patterns into account. Expand
Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010
TLDR
The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 aimed to estimate annual deaths for the world and 21 regions between 1980 and 2010 for 235 causes, with uncertainty intervals (UIs), separately by age and sex, using the Cause of Death Ensemble model. Expand
Global burden of disease attributable to mental and substance use disorders: findings from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010
TLDR
The findings show the striking and growing challenge that these disorders pose for health systems in developed and developing regions. Expand
Years lived with disability (YLDs) for 1160 sequelae of 289 diseases and injuries 1990–2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010
TLDR
Prevalence and severity of health loss were weakly correlated and age-specific prevalence of YLDs increased with age in all regions and has decreased slightly from 1990 to 2010, but population growth and ageing have increased YLD numbers and crude rates over the past two decades. Expand
Online convex optimization in the bandit setting: gradient descent without a gradient
TLDR
It is possible to use gradient descent without seeing anything more than the value of the functions at a single point, and the guarantees hold even in the most general case: online against an adaptive adversary. Expand
Global epidemiology of hepatitis C virus infection: New estimates of age‐specific antibody to HCV seroprevalence
TLDR
The high prevalence of global HCV infection necessitates renewed efforts in primary prevention, including vaccine development, as well as new approaches to secondary and tertiary prevention to reduce the burden of chronic liver disease and to improve survival for those who already have evidence of liver disease. Expand
SybilGuard: defending against sybil attacks via social networks
TLDR
This paper presents SybilGuard, a novel protocol for limiting the corruptive influences of sybil attacks, based on the "social network "among user identities, where an edge between two identities indicates a human-established trust relationship. Expand
Global Distribution and Prevalence of Hepatitis C Virus Genotypes
TLDR
It is calculated that HCV genotype 1 is the most prevalent worldwide, comprising 83.4 million cases (46.2% of all HCV cases), approximately one‐third of which are in East Asia. Expand
