SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by scidev.net.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
Science and Development Network Confidence: 84% Arrow up

SciDev.Net is a not-for-profit organisation that produces news, views and analysis about science and technology in the context of global development.

It primarily engages with development professionals, policymakers, researchers, the media and the informed public.

Science, technology and society Confidence: 72% Arrow up

In science studies, science, technology and society (STS or science and technology studies) is the study of how social, political, and cultural values affect scientific research and technological innovation, and how these, in turn, affect society, politics and culture.

Agriculture Confidence: 72% Arrow up

Agriculture is the cultivation and breeding of animals, plants and fungi for food, fiber, biofuel, medicinal plants and other products used to sustain and enhance human life.

Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that nurtured the development of civilization.

The study of agriculture is known as agricultural science.

The history of agriculture dates back thousands of years, and its development has been driven and defined by greatly different climates, cultures, and technologies.

Industrial agriculture based on large-scale monoculture farming has become the dominant agricultural methodology.

Information Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Information is that which informs.

In other words, it is the answer to a question of some kind.

It is thus related to data and knowledge, as data represents values attributed to parameters, and knowledge signifies understanding of real things or abstract concepts.

As it regards data, the information's existence is not necessarily coupled to an observer (it exists beyond an event horizon, for example), while in the case of knowledge, the information requires a cognitive observer.

Health Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Health is the level of functional and metabolic efficiency of a living organism.

In humans it is the ability of individuals or communities to adapt and self-manage when facing physical, mental or social changes.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in its 1948 constitution as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." This definition has been subject to controversy, in particular as lacking operational value, the ambiguity in developing cohesive health strategies, and because of the problem created by use of the word "complete".

Other definitions have been proposed, among which a recent definition that correlates health and personal satisfaction.
