How can we solve world hunger with rice? | Ep#6 | AXA Research Fund
 
02:39
In less than 50 years, the planet will be home to nearly 10 billion inhabitants. How to sustainably feed such a growing population, in a context where the increase of extreme weather events brought by climate change is already a challenge for food yield? For Prof. Rod Wing, Researcher in genome biology and evolutionary genomics, the solution is rice. By harnessing the natural variation in rice’s wild relatives, he will be able to provide public breeders around the world with varieties of rice that are higher yielding, more nutritious, and that have less of an environmental footprint - thus playing a major role in making our planet more sustainable. *** Dans moins de 50 ans, nous serons Presque 10 milliards sur la planète. Comment nourrir une population qui augmente autant, alors que l’intensification des événements météorologiques extrêmes est déjà un défi pour les récoltes et les réserves de nourriture ? Pour le Professeur Rod Wing, chercheur en biologie du génome et génomique de l'évolution, le riz est la solution. A travers la recherche des variations naturelles des espèces sauvages de riz perdues lors du processus de domestication, son objectif est de pouvoir mettre à disposition des cultivateurs des variétés ayant un rendement et un apport nutritif supérieurs, tout en ayant un impact écologique moindre.

Resilient Cities | Exploring Future City Growth & Urban Landscapes | Ep#1 | AXA Research Fund
 
02:21
Exploring the future of global city growth and urban landscape development to help build resilient cities with National Geographic. The global population is rising. in 1950 there were 700 million people on earth. It is predicted that by 2050 this number will rise to over 6 billion. City populations are expanding ever faster with people arriving for economic opportunities, but few consider the risks they face. Cities are expanding beyond their original boundaries and people are now living in areas that are more exposed to some kinds of natural hazards. In this film we talk to Dr. Cassidy Johnson, (University College London), a researcher supported by the AXA Research Fund and Simon Clow, an expert in social responsibility. Data is key to understanding risk in growing cities - Dr. Johnson's research looks at 'Metrics and measurement for urban resilience', helping to understand who is in an area and what their vulnerabilities are. This in turn allows Governments and planners to build the infrastructure needed to support them. Awareness is key to making the right decisions and populations, governments and private organisations can change the way they act on a daily basis. Over population in cities is not an inevitable outcome. Understanding risk and planning for growth will help plan city development and it's infrastructure and help build resilient cities. -- Subscribe to keep up to date with all our latest content: https://goo.gl/FnRO98 --- Watch other films in National Geographic's 'Building Resilient Cities' series: Episode 1 - Exploring Future City Growth & Urban Landscapes - https://youtu.be/Hm8wyIkZ3aw Episode 2 - Flooding: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/MnF5rbNUvbQ Episode 3 - Air Pollution: Exploring the Impact on Health - https://youtu.be/vBEUfGK1sGY Episode 4 - Earthquakes: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/uatUu2EZMQc Episode 5 - Insurance : enabling resilience for Cities - https://youtu.be/NQ9AKBX9nQc --- Building Resilient Cities Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbLfQYSzQ-h0_J9YkWWcWRPy2LNjcmWoU --- For more great videos - check out our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AXAResearchFundLive/videos --- Visit our website and content hub to find out more: https://www.axa-research.org/ --- Find us on: Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/AXAResearch/ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/axaresearchfund/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/AXAResearchFund LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/axa/ ---

Resilient Cities | Insurance: Enabling Resilience for Cities | Ep#5 | AXA Research Fund
 
02:22
Understanding the impact population growth is having on cities, the vulnerabilities they face and how through research we can help build resilient cities, in partnership with National Geographic. In the next 35 years, India's urban population is predicted to grow by over 400m China's by over 300m and in Nigeria by approximately 250m. Cities are at constant risk of flooding, earthquakes and air pollution. It is of vital importance to understand these risks and why they are growing. In this film we talk to Prof. Deborah Balk (City University of New York) who is working with the AXA Research Fund, to understand city growth and their vulnerabilities to help understand which areas are most at risk to natural or man-man hazards and events. Data supports the view that land will become scarcer in the future. Land is under pressure due to climate and population change. It is now important to work with cities to evaluate risk, put in place some prevention measures and insurance solutions and support the resilience of cities. -- Subscribe to keep up to date with all our latest content: https://goo.gl/FnRO98 --- Watch other films in National Geographic's 'Building Resilient Cities' series: Episode 1 - Exploring Future City Growth & Urban Landscapes - https://youtu.be/Hm8wyIkZ3aw Episode 2 - Flooding: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/MnF5rbNUvbQ Episode 3 - Air Pollution: Exploring the Impact on Health - https://youtu.be/vBEUfGK1sGY Episode 4 - Earthquakes: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/uatUu2EZMQc Episode 5 - Insurance : enabling resilience for Cities - https://youtu.be/NQ9AKBX9nQc --- Building Resilient Cities Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbLfQYSzQ-h0_J9YkWWcWRPy2LNjcmWoU --- For more great videos - check out our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AXAResearchFundLive/videos --- Visit our website to find out more: https://www.axa-research.org/ --- Find us on: Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/AXAResearch/ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/axaresearchfund/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/AXAResearchFund LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/axa/ ---

Exploring how early warning systems can help in cities situated on active earthquake areas can help build resilient cities, in partnership with National Geographic. 15 of the worlds largest cities are situated in earthquake active areas. There have been more that 850,000 casualties as a result of earthquakes and their related effects in the last 35 years, costing the global economy over $750 billion. Whilst new building design is built to withstand earthquakes we must still look at the vulnerability of existing buildings. You cannot prevent the damage caused earthquakes, but we can reduce it and more importantly reduce the number of casualties that arise because it. This film talks to Prof. Iunio Iervolino (University of Naples Federico II) who, with the support of the AXA Research Fund, is looking at developing early warnings systems for earthquakes, detecting in them real-time and alerting communities and cities at risk, helping to reduce casualties and damage. -- Subscribe to keep up to date with all our latest content: https://goo.gl/FnRO98 --- Watch other films in National Geographic's 'Building Resilient Cities' series: Episode 1 - Exploring Future City Growth & Urban Landscapes - https://youtu.be/Hm8wyIkZ3aw Episode 2 - Flooding: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/MnF5rbNUvbQ Episode 3 - Air Pollution: Exploring the Impact on Health - https://youtu.be/vBEUfGK1sGY Episode 4 - Earthquakes: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/uatUu2EZMQc Episode 5 - Insurance : enabling resilience for Cities - https://youtu.be/NQ9AKBX9nQc --- Building Resilient Cities Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbLfQYSzQ-h0_J9YkWWcWRPy2LNjcmWoU --- For more great videos - check out our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AXAResearchFundLive/videos --- Visit our website to find out more: https://www.axa-research.org/ --- Find us on: Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/AXAResearch/ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/axaresearchfund/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/AXAResearchFund LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/axa/ ---

Community resilience & extreme weather events | Ep#2 | AXA Research Fund
 
03:52
Protecting individuals from extreme weather events and climate change is the joint responsibility of governments, other agencies in civil society and communities. All have different roles to play in building capacity to respond to those challenges; and ideally they should work together and be mutually supportive. But experience shows that this isn't always the case. Starting from New Orleans' Hurricane Katrina, and meeting and talking with local communities, Dr. Brown, Social Scientist and Professor at the University of Exeter, discusses how communities can build resilience, and work together to enhance their capacities to adapt to change. Dr. Katrina Brown's research aims to understand communities' experience of extremes and identify the roots of vulnerability and resilience, and to inform policy and ultimately empower poor communities in the face of climate change. Watch the second episode of EXPLORE / PROTECT Series of conversation between AXA Research Fund & National Geographic Explorer Jon Waterman... *** Protéger les personnes des événements extrêmes et du changement climatique relève de la responsabilité conjointe des gouvernements, d'organisations de la société civile et des communautés elles-mêmes. Chacun a un rôle différent à jouer pour faire face à ces défis, et tous devraient travailler de concert et se soutenir mutuellement. Mais l'expérience montre que tel n'est pas toujours le cas. Katrina Brown, sociologue et Professeur à l'Université d'Exeter, nous mène sur les traces de l'Ouragan Katrina qui a frappé la Nouvelle Orléans en 2005, à la rencontre des communautés locales : comment ces communautés peuvent-elles collectivement améliorer leur résilience, et développer leur capacité d'adaptation au changement ? L'objectif de Katrina Brown est de comprendre comment les communautés vivent ces épisodes climatiques extrêmes, d'identifier les facteurs de vulnérabilité et de résilience, et de contribuer aux politiques locales, afin d'aider les communautés les plus démunies à faire face au changement climatique.

STRESS | Can Smiling Reduce Your Stress? | Ep #1 | AXA Research Fund
 
03:25
A smile, even a fake one, can help reduce your stress levels. In this episode of the AXA Research Files, science presenter Greg Foot travels to the University of Irvine in California to look at new research into whether people who smile more are healthier and happier than those who don’t smile so much. Greg meets and chats to AXA-supported researchers Sarah Pressman and Enzo Tagliazucchi to find out more. Surprisingly, Greg discovers that even faking or pretending to smile still sends a message to the brain that will have some of the same physiological benefits as real smiling. We talked to Sarah Pressman in more detail about her research. You can find that video here: https://youtu.be/ylYTv6dVPYo A good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to reduce stress.

Can we train our brains to make less mistakes and become safer drivers? In this episode of the AXA Research Files, science presenter Greg Foot explores why, wherever there is potential for danger, we often make the wrong choices. Greg chats to AXA-supported researcher Frederic Dehais from Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (ISAE) to understand the impact of stress, uncertainty or fatigue on our ability to make the right choices and why we pay more attention to visual warning notifications rather than auditory ones. Greg also meets Donghyun Ryu from Bangor University, another AXA-supported researcher, looking at how we can lead safer lives by training our brains to better react to hazards.

"My research focuses on intervention in zones of insecurity, taking Mali and the Sahel as its starting point. In short, what to do with intractable situations such as that of the western Sahel, increasingly seen as a ‘risk crucible’ racked by poverty, hunger and war? Who should do it, and how? And are the methods of international agencies up for the task? By taking an ethnographic look at the risk-based interventions engaged in by sectors ranging from security to humanitarianism, the project explores the perils and possibilities of intervention in insecure regions – as well as potential ways forward."

Resilient Cities | Flooding: Exploring Early Warning Systems | Ep#2 | AXA Research Fund
 
02:25
Exploring the impacts of flooding and the benefits of early warning systems to help build resilient cities with National Geographic. Current projections are that global average sea level rise will double by 2100. Inland cities are also equally under threat from river systems by extreme weather events. Flooding and its destruction can costs billions to put right. In 2016, flooding in Paris and the surrounding region, cost over 1 billion euros. Flooding effects everyone, all over the world, from personal homes and transport to hospitals, schools and businesses. Many cities were built by coasts or rivers to allow for transportation of goods to and from their ports and it is therefore vital that we increase our knowledge about floods to allow better information to be provided to city populations to help improve the resilience of the cities. The film features, Dr Vazken Andreassian (IRSTEA Paris) whose research, supported by The AXA Research Fund, looks at developing models for flood early warning systems. If warnings are provided, resulting damage can be minimised. In practice this could mean flood defences are built around vulnerable cities or critical infrastructure (such as transport systems), or could allow residents to move their belongings upstairs and out of harms way, or ensure a farmer moves his livestock to higher ground before a flood hits low lying ground. Early warning systems provide time to minimise potential impact and help build resilient cities. -- Subscribe to keep up to date with all our latest content: https://goo.gl/FnRO98 --- Watch other films in National Geographic's 'Building Resilient Cities' series: Episode 1 - Exploring Future City Growth & Urban Landscapes - https://youtu.be/Hm8wyIkZ3aw Episode 2 - Flooding: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/MnF5rbNUvbQ Episode 3 - Air Pollution: Exploring the Impact on Health - https://youtu.be/vBEUfGK1sGY Episode 4 - Earthquakes: Exploring Early Warning Systems - https://youtu.be/uatUu2EZMQc Episode 5 - Insurance : enabling resilience for Cities - https://youtu.be/NQ9AKBX9nQc --- Building Resilient Cities Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbLfQYSzQ-h0_J9YkWWcWRPy2LNjcmWoU --- For more great videos - check out our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AXAResearchFundLive/videos --- Visit our website and content hub to find out more: https://www.axa-research.org/ --- Find us on: Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/AXAResearch/ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/axaresearchfund/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/AXAResearchFund LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/axa/ ---

AGEING | How Can We Live Longer and Healthier Lives? | Ep #5 | AXA Research Fund
 
05:40
The ageing process leads to the increased likelihood of contracting diseases like cancer or dementia. What can we do to reduce the chances? In this episode of the AXA Research Files, science presenter Greg Foot travels to Cologne to find out if it's possible to reduce the likelihood of being more prone to disease as we age. Greg meets AXA-supported researcher Francesca Baggio at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing to find out more. Francesca introduces us to mitochondria and explains how the mistakes that occur during the replication of these cells leads to ageing. Greg also chats to another AXA-supported researcher, Miia Kivipelto at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, to look into how we can live healthier lives as we age (through exercise, better diet, etc.) and slow down mental decline in the elderly. We talked to Francesca Baggio in more detail about her research. You can find that video here: https://youtu.be/PCySN01CGPw Brain and metabolic health are key to slowing down the onset of age-related diseases.

AXA Chair, Adversarial Risk Analysis - CSIC-ICMAT -Prof Rios
 
01:01
Prof. Rios' research will develop the new field of adversarial risk analysis. While traditional risk analysis is based on models for which loss is mainly governed by chance, he will combine it with game theory to deal with malicious or self-interested actions of intelligent adversaries. He will thus deliver better methods for risk management in areas like cyber security, terrorist attacks or corporate competition, providing new insights analyzing intentionality of adversaries, and, consequently, better protecting our infrastructures, organizations, assets and lives. *** Le but du professeur Rios est de développer le nouveau champ de l'analyse des risques adverses. Alors que traditionnellement, l'analyse des risques est basée sur des modélisations dans lesquelles la perte est principalement due au hasard, il l'associera à la théorie des jeux pour contrer les actions malveillantes ou intéressées d'adversaires intelligents. Il en tirera de meilleures méthodes de gestion des risques dans le domaine de la cybersécurité des attaques terroristes et de la concurrence, permettant d'améliorer l'analyse de l'intentionnalité des adversaires, et, par conséquent, la protection de nos infrastructures, de nos organisations, de nos biens et de nos vies.

Convective storms over Europe - Bogdan Antonescu, Pop Days 2014
 
03:06
"My research focuses on assessing the threat of severe convective storms over Europe. The first objective of my research is to create climatologies of severe weather events (e.g., hail, tornadoes) on a European scale. The second objective is to better understand the factors controlling the distribution of severe weather events. The third objective is to examine the synoptic-scale flow pattern associated with convective storms producing severe weather events. Synthesizing the results from these three objectives will enable us to develop new physically-based conceptual models for convective storms over Europe."

Accidents analysis reveals that the complexity of modern transportation aircraft can overwhelm the most experienced crews when something goes wrong. The purpose of Professor Dehais' research is to uncover the underlying neural mechanisms of human error that lead pilots to persist in irrational behaviors. His approach combines cutting edge brain imaging, signal processing, and artificial intelligence techniques as well as a unique methodology "from basic protocols to ecological experiments". Results from this research will be strongly beneficial to aviation safety leading to implement innovative solutions to mitigate human error. *** L'analyse des accidents révèle que la complexité des avions de transport modernes peut désorienter les équipages les plus expérimentés en cas de problème. Le but de l'étude du professeur Dehais est de découvrir les mécanismes neuronaux sous-jacents impliqués dans l'erreur humaine qui poussent les pilotes à prendre des décisions irrationnelles. Il utilisera les techniques les plus récentes d'imagerie cérébrale, de traitement du signal et d'intelligence artificielle, ainsi qu'une méthodologie unique "des protocoles de base aux expériences écologiques". Cette recherche permettra d'améliorer la sécurité aérienne grâce à la mise en place de solutions innovantes permettant de limiter l'erreur humaine.

My research: An important but poorly understood question in fish conservation and fisheries management is: can size-selective fishing induce an evolutionary response in exploited fish populations. To protect our fish stocks and manage them sustainably, we need a good scientific understanding of the effects of fisheries-induced evolution and the rate of evolutionary changes.
