Modélisation et simulation de l'interdépendance entre l'objet, l'observateur et le modèle de l'objet dans la Triade de Minsky. Application à la surveillance épidémiologique en santé animale.

Abstract : The spread of a disease at national or international scale isn't a reproducible experiment. If experiment is not reproducible, the usual concept of model validation has no statistical meaning because it would involve the comparison between model behaviour and system behaviour.We use Marvin Minsky's definition of model: " to an observer B, an object A* is a model of an object A to the extent that B can use A* to answer questions that interest him about A ". The tree objects A, B and A* are the triad of Minsky. We propose to use the Theory of Modelling and Simulation (TMS) to model and simulate the triad seen as a dynamic system composed of the objects A, B and A*. We hence can answer questions about the use of A* and the impact it has on A.We apply this framework to a triad of Minsky in epidemiological surveillance in animal health. An epidemics (object A) is observed and controlled by a surveillance system and a control system (observer B) and an epidemiological model (model A*) is used to evaluate the control measures.
