This paper reports on research simulating the potential of SGHI (Self-Generated Health Information) for predicting asthma episodes. A data set of 2,000 cases was generated using the Monte Carlo simulation method, with secondary modifications on air… (More)
Examining fragile scientific data is crucial to ensuring that these data are not lost and can continue to be part of the scientific process. In order to investigate various aspects of endangered scientific data the Data-At-Risk Initiative (DARI) project has conducted three studies that provide insight into the current state of scientific data-at-risk. The… (More)
