It is common knowledge that the pollution of India's rivers is a major environmental concern. For example, the Ganga is ranked the fifth dirtiest river in the world. Generated from various sources such as untreated sewage and industrial effluents, the pollution inflicts serious health conditions on all life that depends on the river. In Kanpur, villagers suffer from conditions including cholera and miscarriages, and livestock yield less milk and, many times, die...
Artificial intelligence can significantly boost conventional security systems. This is what Prof Milind Tambe from University of Southern California (USC) told his audience while speaking on the 4th lecture of 'The Roddam Narasimha Lecture Series' at Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IIT-Gn) on Monday.
In the early 2000s, USC Viterbi Computer Science Professor Milind Tambe and a graduate student began working on a game-theory algorithm to optimize interac- tions among robots. They found that randomized interactions resulted in the most effective coordination.
A Santa Monica tech company focused on security and birthed at USC has now locked up the school as a customer.
Armorway Inc., a security analytics firm co-founded by Zaré Baghdasarian, Manish Jain and James Pita in 2013, has developed a software program that uses game theory to analyze real-time data in an effort to enhance security efforts.
“When you play any game, each of you wants to win,” said Jain, Armorway’s chief technology officer. “But the outcome depends on what both of you do. We model security on these games.”

Despite the widespread impact of software today on our lives,
there are a number of areas of computer science research which have had a difficult time in being translated into practical, every day usage. One of those
areas is game theory--the use of computer simulations to predict the behavior of multiple people or entities, and how they will behave together, most famously depicted in that 1980's movie, War Games. Los Angeles startup--ArmorWay (www.armorwaycom)--is trying to take what has mostly been an esoteric computer science research area, and is now looking to...

Among homeless young people, across country, HIV rates are 10 times that of the general population. Keeping alive can mean sex work, drug use and other risky behavior. One of the more effective ways of combating the spread of HIV is peer-led education programs. But, says Eric Rice, a professor at University of Southern California’s School of Social Work, choosing the right peer to lead can be tricky.
