Confronting Intelligent Adversaries

Behind events like terrorist attacks and cybersecurity breaches are human enemies, acting on self-interest or malicious intentions. Risk analysis for adversarial situations—found in areas from national security to corporate marketing—involves intelligent opponents driven by their own motivations and preferences. By combining the methods of mathematical game theory with decision and risk analysis, Prof. David Rios is developing a new field to support rational, strategic choices when faced with different kinds of adversaries.
