Papers from the 2012 AAAI Spring Symposium
Bo An, Manish Jain, Program Cochairs
There is a large and growing interest in applying game theory to security, sustainability, and health; which are grand challenges for engineering in the 21st century. In fact, the last five years have seen game theory based systems developed and applied to real-world domains. For example, software assistants have been developed for randomized patrol planning for the Los Angeles International Airport police, the Federal Air Marshal Service and the United States Transportation Security Administration. Also game theory has been utilized for decentralized control, operation and management of future generation electricity.
While there has been significant progress, there still exist many major challenges facing the design of effective approaches to deal with the difficulties in security, sustainability, and health. Addressing these challenges requires collaboration from different communities including artificial intelligence, game theory, operations research, social science, and psychology. This symposium encouraged a lively exchange of ideas between members from these communities.
