This is a preprint version of the first book from the series: "Stories told by data". In this book a story is told about the psychological traits associated with drug consumption. The book includes: - A review of published works on the psychological profiles of drug users. - Analysis of a new original database with information on 1885 respondents and usage of 18 drugs. (Database is available online.) - An introductory description of the data mining and machine learning methods used for the… Expand
Informational Space of Meaning for Scientific Texts
TLDR
Analysis of the Meaning Space provides a tool to further explore quantifying the meaning of a text using more complex and context-dependent meaning models that use co-occurrence of words and their combinations. Expand
Recent Use of Synthetic Cannabinoids, Synthetic Opioids, and Other Psychoactive Drug Groups among High-risk Drug Users
TLDR
Clinicians should be informed about the extent of prescription oral opioids or transdermal fentanyl formulations and SCRA use among high-risk drug users, and the associated higher odds of concomitantly using other psychoactive substance, for they represent actual risk to patients and complicate treatment. Expand
Dynamic and thermodynamic models of adaptation.
TLDR
A world of models and experiments is explored, starting with classic works, with particular attention to the results of the last ten years and open questions. Expand
Trajectories, bifurcations, and pseudo-time in large clinical datasets: applications to myocardial infarction and diabetes data
TLDR
A pseudo-time quantification-based approach makes it possible to apply the methods developed for dynamical disease phenotyping and illness trajectory analysis (diachronic data analysis) to synchronic observational data. Expand

The Five Factor Model of personality and evaluation of drug consumption risk
The problem of evaluating an individual’s risk of drug consumption and misuse is highly important and novel. An online survey methodology was employed to collect data including personality traitsExpand
Five-Factor Model personality profiles of drug users
TLDR
Comparing the personality profile of tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, and heroin users and non-users using the wide spectrum Five-Factor Model (FFM) of personality in a diverse community sample highlights the links between drug use and low Conscientiousness. Expand
Cannabis users differ from non-users on measures of personality and schizotypy
TLDR
Data show that cannabis users differ from non-users on dimensions of normal personality and schizotypy, and provide further evidence that cannabis use is associated with increased levels of psychosis-related personality traits. Expand
Personality trait development from age 12 to age 18: longitudinal, cross-sectional, and cross-cultural analyses.
TLDR
Personality factors were reasonably invariant across ages, although rank-order stability of individual differences was low and mean levels of Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness were stable. Expand
The dark triad and normal personality traits
Abstract Machiavellianism, Narcissism and Psychopathy are often referred to as the ‘dark triad’ of personality. We examined the degree to which these constructs could be identified in 82 personsExpand
THE ECOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF CORRELATION PLEIADES
TLDR
The origin of correlation pleiades in the course of evolution is an indication of the increasing independence of certain developmental processes with respect to environmental factors, including the influences exerted by the other parts of the same organism. Expand
The NEO-FFI: emerging British norms and an item-level analysis suggest N, A and C are more reliable than O and E
Abstract The NEO Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI) was given to 1025 British subjects as part of three independent research studies. Data from these studies were pooled and subjected to item-levelExpand
Collinearity: a review of methods to deal with it and a simulation study evaluating their performance
TLDR
It was found that methods specifically designed for collinearity, such as latent variable methods and tree based models, did not outperform the traditional GLM and threshold-based pre-selection and the value of GLM in combination with penalised methods and thresholds when omitted variables are considered in the final interpretation.

Computational diagnosis of canine lymphoma
TLDR
PetScreen developed a lymphoma blood test using serum samples collected from several veterinary practices and three methods, decision trees, kNN and probability density evaluation, were used for classification and risk estimation and several pre- processing approaches were implemented to create the diagnostic system. Expand
Computational diagnosis and risk evaluation for canine lymphoma
TLDR
The best models are selected as the system for computational lymphoma diagnosis and evaluation of the risk of lymphoma as well and are implemented into a special web-accessed software and applied to the problem of monitoring dogs with lymphoma after treatment. Expand
