Digital traces on the Internet from One health perspective – a methodological seminar (Hybrid event)

News vom 26.08.2022

Nowadays researchers widely use Internet media data to investigate the behavioral and affective dynamics of the public during COVID-19 pandemics. However, non-English European languages are highly underrepresented and other non-human health problems are not covered at all. Cross-sector communication, collaboration and knowledge exchange are still significant challenges for practical integration of human, animal, plants and environmental health issues. Adoption of One Health solutions can be divided into two pillars:  

  •  Infodemiology is very useful in understanding social perception during the pandemic by quantifying dynamics of interest (demand and supply of content) and discourse patterns. It plays a complementary role to standard tools such as surveys and allows for the analysis in real time. 
  •  Infosurveillance could be useful for public One Health decision makers in some specific areas such as predicting disease prevalence or early warning and source detection of health crisis event (also complementary to standard tools such as disease surveillance and environmental monitoring system). 

We hereby invite you to attend a mini-workshop on media monitoring and analysis for One Health issues at the Institute for Veterinary Epidemiology and Biostatistics, FU Berlin organised by Prof. Vitaly Belik and Mr. Andrzej Jarynowski, as part of the research project „COVINT“ (DFG project number 458528774).
