George Cybenko, Professor, Thayer School of Engineering

Friday, January 7, 2011

Spanos Auditorium

This seminar is part of the Jones Seminars on Science, Technology, and Society series

There has been much recent interest and progress in "behavioral analysis" across domains as diverse as finance, computer security, insider threat detection, wide area sensor fusion, homeland security and consumer marketing. This presentation will provide an integrated overview and framework for computational behavioral analysis using concepts from automata theory, statistics and game theory. Examples drawn from our own work and the work of others will illustrate key points.
