Speaker creates game theory framework to tackle terrorismby Brenda Ellis Nov. 1, 2013, 8:33 AM
Milind Tambe will speak Thursday, Nov. 14, at 3 p.m. in Jacobs Believed in Me Auditorium in Featheringill Hall as part of an annual lecture series sponsored by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Vanderbilt University. Tambe’s topic is “Security and Game Theory.” Global threats of terrorism and other crimes have led to increased research on game theory for security application. Tambe says computational game theory provides a sound mathematical approach to maximize limited security resources, whether it is protecting critical infrastructure, intercepting the illegal flow of drugs, weapons and money, suppressing crime in urban areas or security in cyberspace. He will outline key algorithmic principles, research results and discuss deployed systems and lessons learned. This event is limited to faculty and students only.
