How to get the most out of the tests

24 April 2020 -- op-net-admin

With Covid-19 hitting all areas of our lives, there is a need both socially and politically to know what the state of the citizenry is. We need to know how Covid-19 is evolving, how many citizens have it, how and where they are infected, what is the probability of them getting sick, etc. All these data are necessary in order to take appropriate measures and to know when and how we are going to recover certain areas of our lives and what other aspects are going to change forever.

An international team led by a researcher from IMDEA Networks counts more than two million current symptomatic cases of Covid-19 in Spain

02 April 2020 -- op-net-admin

In order to properly manage the Covid-19 pandemic, governments and the scientists who advise them need the most accurate data possible on the situation. The problem is that such data do not exist. The only data they have are those provided by laboratory tests. In other words, governments know how many people have tested positive, how many are in hospitals and how many are being treated over the phone. But by now it is more than evident that these are not the real data of the pandemic. Scientists around the world are now devising formulas to estimate figures that are more realistic. An international team led by researcher Antonio Fernández Anta of the IMDEA Networks institute is one of them.

Why we need more tests to understand COVID-19

25 March 2020 -- op-net-admin

The Director General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has recommended that all countries tackle the coronavirus with three strong words: "test, test, test". Not everyone understands that the health system is governed by a statistical science. Its aim is not to give the best possible care to each patient, but rather, as resources are limited, its aim is to give the best possible care to all patients. This implies that sometimes individual patients will receive less optimal treatment in order to optimize the management of resources used for all.

A salary in exchange for our data is the new economic system proposed by a researcher from the IMDEA Networks Institute

18 February 2020 -- op-net-admin

Data and the economy stemming from them are the engine for the fourth industrial revolution. However, and according to Nikolaos Laoutaris, there is a very important leading player who currently receives absolutely nothing of the huge profits generated by the activity: the people who provide these data. Only in a very few cases do the humans producing data receive a measly compensation in kind for it: free online services.

Measuring online behavioural advertising: one more step to protect users

08 November 2019 -- op-net-admin

The fact is not everyone knows how online advertising works and what data companies are using to create personalized ads to show us. Dr. Nikolaos Laoutaris, Research Professor at IMDEA Networks, has published new research results on the detection of behavioural targeting in online advertising.
