  • Fraustino, Julia Daisy, Brooke Liu and Yan Jin. “Social Media Use during Disasters: A Review of the Knowledge Base and Gaps,” Final Report to Human Factors/Behavioral Sciences Division, Science and Technology Directorate, U.S. Department of Homeland Security. College Park, MD: START, 2012. Disaster communication deals with disaster information disseminated to the public by governments, emergency management organizations, and disaster responders as well as disaster information created and shared by journalists and the public. Disaster communication increasingly occurs via social media in addition to more conventional communication modes such as traditional media (e.g., newspaper, TV, radio) and word-of-mouth (e.g., phone call, face-to-face, group). Timely, interactive communication and user-generated content are hallmarks of social media, which include a diverse array of web- and mobile-based tools Disaster communication deals with (1) disaster information disseminated to the public by governments, emergency management organizations, and disaster responders often via traditional and social media; as well as (2) disaster information created and shared by journalists and affected members of the public often through word-of-mouth communication and social media. For information seeking. Disasters often breed high levels of uncertainty among the public (Mitroff, 2004), which prompts them to engage in heightened information seeking, (Boyle, Schmierbach, Armstrong, & McLeod, 2004; Procopio & Procopio, 2007). As expected, information seeking is a primary driver of social media use during routine times and during disasters (Liu et al., in press; PEW Internet, 2011). For timely information. Social media provide real-time disaster information, which no other media can provide (Kavanaugh et al., 2011; Kodrich & Laituri, 2011). Social media can become the primary source of time-sensitive disaster information, especially when official sources provide information too slowly or are unavailable (Spiro et al., 2012). For example, during the 2007 California wildfires, the public turned to social media because they thought journalists and public officials were too slow to provide relevant information about their communities (Sutton, Palen, & Shklovski, 2008). Time-sensitive information provided by social media during disasters is also useful for officials. For example, in an analysis of more than 500 million tweets, Culotta (2010) found Twitter data forecasted future influenza rates with high accuracy during the 2009 pandemic, obtaining a 95% correlation with national health statistics. Notably, the national statistics came from hospital survey reports, which typically had a lag time of one to two weeks for influenza reporting. For unique information. One of the primary reasons the public uses social media during disaster is to obtain unique information (Caplan, Perse, & Gennaria, 2007). Applied to a disaster setting, which is inherently unpredictable and evolving, it follows that individuals turn to whatever source will provide the newest details. Oftentimes, individuals experiencing the event first-hand are on the scene of the disaster and can provide updates more quickly than traditional news sources and disaster response organization. For instance, in the Mumbai terrorist attacks that included multiple coordinated shootings and bombings across two days, laypersons were first to break the news on Twitter (Merrifield & Palenchar, 2012). Research participants report using social media to satisfy their need to have the latest information available during disasters and for information gathering and sharing during disasters (Palen, Starbird, Vieweg, & Hughes, 2010; Vieweg, Hughes, Starbird, & Palen, 2010). For unfiltered information. To obtain crisis information, individuals often communicate with one another via social media rather than seeking a traditional news source or organizational website (Stephens & Malone, 2009). The public check in with social media not only to obtain up-to-date, timely information unavailable elsewhere, but also because they appreciate that information may be unfiltered by traditional media, organizations, or politicians (Liu et al., in press).  To determine disaster magnitude. The public uses social media to stay apprised of the extent of a disaster (Liu et al., in press). They may turn to governmental or organizational sources for this information, but research has shown that if the public do not receive the information they desire when they desire it, they, along with others, will fill in the blanks (Stephens & Malone, 2009), which can create rumors and misinformation. On the flipside, when the public believed that officials were not disseminating enough information regarding the size and trajectory of the 2007 California wildfires, they took matters into their own hands, using social media to track fire locations in real-time and notify residents who were potentially in danger (Sutton, Palen, & Shklovski, 2008).  To check in with family and friends. While Americans predominately use social media to connect with family and friends (PEW Internet, 2011), during disasters those connections may shift. For those with family or friends directly involved with the disaster, social media can provide a way to ensure safety, offer support, and receive timely status updates (Procopio & Procopio, 2007; Stephens & Malone, 2009). In a survey of 1,058 Americans, the American Red Cross (2010) found that nearly half of their respondents would use social media to let loved ones know they are safe during disasters. After the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the public turned to Twitter, Facebook, Skype, and local Japanese social networks to keep in touch with loved ones while mobile networks were down (Gao, Barbier, & Goolsby, 2011). Researchers also note that disasters may enhance feelings of affection toward family members, and indeed survey participants reported expressing more positive emotions toward their loved ones than usual as a result of the September 11 terrorist attacks, even if they were not directly impacted by the disaster (Fredrickson et al., 2003). Finally, disasters can motivate the public to reconnect with family and friends via social media (Procopio & Procopio, 2009; Semaan & Mark, 2012).  To self-mobilize. During disasters, the public may use social media to organize emergency relief and ongoing assistance efforts from both near and afar. In fact, one research group dubbed those who surge to the forefront of digital and in-person disaster relief efforts as “voluntweeters” (Starbird & Palen, 2011). Other research documents the role of Facebook and Twitter in disaster relief fundraising (Horrigan & Morris, 2005; PEJ, 2010). Research also reveals how social media can help identify and respond to urgent needs after disasters. For example, just two hours after the 2010 Haitian earthquake Tufts University volunteers created Ushahidi-Haiti, a crisis map where disaster survivors and volunteers could send incident reports via text messages and tweets. In less than two weeks, 2,500 incident reports were sent to the map (Gao, Barbier, & Gollsby, 2011).  To maintain a sense of community. During disasters the media in general and social media in particular may provide a unique gratification: sense of community. That is, as the public logs in online to share their feelings and thoughts, they assist each other in creating a sense of security and community, even when scattered across a vast geographical area (Lev-On, 2011; Procopio & Procopio, 2007). As Reynolds and Seeger (2012) observed, social media create communities during disasters that may be temporary or may continue well into the future.  To seek emotional support and healing. Finally, disasters are often inherently tragic, prompting individuals to seek not only information but also human contact, conversation, and emotional care (Sutton et al., 2008). Social media are positioned to facilitate emotional support, allowing individuals to foster virtual communities and relationships, share information and feelings, and even demand resolution (Choi & Lin, 2009; Stephens & Malone, 2009). Indeed, social media in general and blogs in particular are instrumental for providing emotional support during and after disasters (Macias, Hilyard, & Freimuth, 2009; PEJ New Media Index, 2011). Additionally, social media in general and Twitter in particular can aid healing, as research finds during both natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina (Procopio & Procopio, 2007), and man-made disasters, such as the July 2011 attacks in Oslo, Norway (Perng et al., 2012).

He was called the father of modern medicine. Sir William Osler called Imhotep as the true father of medicine.Observations related to human body was quite limited Initially, doctors communicated with patients asking for their symptoms (subjective)Laennec’s [Rene TheophileHyacintheLaënnec, a French Physician] stethoscope was the fist peek into the observations of human body (objective)Now, there are petabytes of data being generated for observations of human body

  • Data overload in the context of asthma
  • AmitSheth, Pramod Anantharam, Cory Henson, 'Physical-Cyber-Social Computing: An Early 21st Century Approach,' IEEE Intelligent Systems, vol. 28, no. 1, pp. 78-82, Jan.-Feb., 2013.
  • Research on Asthma has three phases Data collection: what signals to collect?Analysis: what analysis to be done?Actionable information: what action to recommend?In the next slide, we take a peek into the analysis that we do for Asthma
  • What is the current state of a person/patient? => Summarizing all the observations (sensor and personal) into a single score indicating health of a personInstead of presenting all the raw data (often to much e.g., Asthma application we have developed collects CO, temperature, and humidity every 10 seconds resulting in 8,640 observations/day) which may not be comprehensible to the patient, we empower them by providing actionable summaries.
  • What is the likely state of the person in future? => Given the current state and the changing environmental conditions, estimate the state of the person by summarizing it into a number which is actionable. For example, vulnerability score for a person with Asthma is computed with environmental factors (pollen, air quality, external temperature and humidity) and current state of the patient. Intuitively, a person with well controlled asthma should have a lower vulnerability score than a person with poorly controlled asthma both being in a poor environmental state.
  • In the absence of declarative knowledge in a domain, we resort to statistical approaches to glean insights from dataEven if there is declarative knowledge of a domain, it may have to be personalizedThe CO level may be related to the luminosity as observed by the sensordrone – as it gets brighter the CO level also increases => high CO level in daytime If such an insight is provided to a person, the interpretation can be:Some activity inside the house leads to high CO levelsOutside activity leads to high CO levels inside the houseSince the person knows that he/she is absent in the house during mornings, it has to be something from outside.- Person narrows down to a possible opened window at home (forgot to close more often)
  • There are two components in making sense of Health Signals:Health signal extraction – processing, aggregating, and abstracting from raw sensor/textual data to create human intelligible abstractionsHealth signal understanding – derive (1) connections between abstractions and (2) Action recommendation:ContinueContact nurseContact doctor
  • Only score based structure extraction is presented here. Other popular structure extraction techniques include constraint based approaches which finds independences between random variables X1, …, XnI-Map => different structures result in the same loglikelihood score. Thus recovering the original structure of the graph generating data using data alone is considered impossible! We go the the rescue of declarative knowledge to: (1) choose promising structures and (2) to break ties when two structure results in the same score
  • Massive amount of data is collected by sensors and mobile devices yet patients and doctors care about “actionable” information.This data has all the four Vs of big data and we used knowledge enabled techniques to transform it into valueIn the context of PD, we analyzed massive amount of sensor data collected by sensors on a smartphones to understand detection and characterization of PD severity.
  • Main idea: Prior knowledge of PD was used to facilitate its detection from massive sensor data by reducing the search spaceDetails:Declarative knowledge of PD includes PD severity and their symptoms as shown in the logical rule aboveEach PD severity level is a conjunction of a set of PD symptomsEach symptom was mapped to its manifestation in sensor observationsThe availability of declarative knowledge significantly improved the analytics by aiding feature selection processThe graphs above contrasts the physical movements and voice of two control group members and two PD patients

  • We evaluate the extracted events based on there orthogonal metrics.We compare (1) events extracted from tweets using our algorithms and (2) 511.org events Complementary events – the events from (1) and (2) may complement each other i.e., one providing a different view from the otherCorroborative events – the events from (1) and (2) may support each other i.e., redundant eventsTimeliness – the events were reported on (1) before it was reported on (2)
  • Next few slides give examples of the evaluation metric
  • The record of 511.org may have its own timestamp which may be before tweets
