Illness is a part of life. For many years, we have known about disease. But, we were not always so smart. The Black Plague ravaged Europe between 1347 and 1352 and killed 30–80 million people. No one knew how people caught the condition and lots of ideas failed. People just died. But, not everyone died; possibly, their immune systems helped them fight off these invaders.

Smart contracts are an innovative application of blockchain technology. Acting as decentralized custodians of digital assets, they allow us to transfer value and information more effectively by reducing the need to trust a third party. By eliminating the need for intermediaries, smart contracts have the potential to massively scale the world economy and unleash the potential for faster and more efficient solutions than traditional systems could ever provide.

But there’s one catch: while blockchains are secure, smart contracts are not.

A structure should be designed taking into account safety, reliability, and economy. Reliability is the probability of successful function, and risk is the potential for unwanted negative consequence of an event. In structural engineering, risk analysis involves the investigation of the probability of rare events. Risk analyses are typically made on the basis of information, which is subject to uncertainty. These uncertainties may be divided into inherent or natural variability.

This book reveals amazing examples of what has and is happening with science and DNA forensics. The public now knows the DNA molecule by sight and how it can assist in solving crimes such as murder and sexual assaults.

The authors demonstrate how DNA forensics has developed over the years. DNA has assisted in finding criminals and releasing those who were wrongly accused, including prisoners on death row and a few who were already executed!
