WNCG faculty member Evdokia Nikolova is co-organizer for a semester-long program on Real-Time Decision Making at UC Berkeley. The program is hosted by the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, a collaborative research institute which is a leader in theoretical computer science.
Algorithmic Game Theory
As vehicles become smarter, increasingly automated and with access to massive amounts of data, they become better equipped to commucate, coordinate and compute optimal routes so as to minimize congestion. Such coordination is modeled by routing games, where a central goal is to understand and compute a socially optimal traffic assignment that minimizes overall congestion.
