Description & Coverage
Description:

Forecasting new and emerging risks associated with new technologies is a hard and provocative challenge. A wide range of new and modified materials are being made available, and many of these have unknown consequences including nanomaterials, composites, biomaterials, and biocybernetics. Additionally, the greater complexity of man-machine processes and interfaces, the introduction of collaborative robots, and the excessive dependence on computers, as in the case of unmanned vehicles in transportation, could trigger new risks.

Forecasting and Managing Risk in the Health and Safety Sectors is an essential reference source that combines theoretical underpinnings with practical relevance in order to introduce training activities to manage uncertainty and risks consequent to emerging technologies. Featuring research on topics such as energy policy, green management, and intelligence cycle, this book is ideally designed for government officials, managers, policymakers, researchers, lecturers, advanced students, and professionals.

Editor/Author Biographies

Luisa dall’Acqua is a senior cognitive scientist. She is an author, reviewer, and editor for several international scientific journals and book editions, and was a committee member for international Workshops/Conferences. Since 1990 she performed teaching activities, training students, teachers in service, headmasters and professionals; and since 2003 she was a member of international projects and research teams (USA, Europe, Asia). After an MSc in Philosophy, Luisa received a Ph.D. in Sociology of Legal Institutions and Policies, and a second Ph.D. in Psychological and Social Sciences. The main field of research is an engineering and social-cognitive approach to the intelligence and problem solving, and in particular to the decision-making risk under stress, conflict, and unpredictability, ranging from individual, collective, institutional intelligence applications to computational intelligence. The new risk scenarios, which she is working on, are cyber-intelligence and cyber-criminal profiling. Currently, she is a permanent teacher at the TCO Scientific Lyceum (Italy) and an adjunct professor at the University of Bologna.
