Georgia Tech researchers have developed a computational model that can predict video game players’ in-game performance and provide a corresponding challenge they can beat, leading to quicker mastery of new skills. The researchers used a method called collaborative filtering, a popular technique employed by Netflix and Amazon in product ratings and recommendations. While Netflix recommends movies, the gaming model recommends the next challenge for players, adjusting game difficulty by computationally forecasting in-game performance.
On Monday, March 4, Nobel Laureate Ken Arrow delivered the College of Computing’s Distinguished Lecture titled “Health and Wealth.” Addressing a standing-room-only crowd, Arrow discussed longevity and other aspects of health as commodities, as well as their trade-off with more usual goods as important measures of the well being of nations.
Cedric Stallworth, along with other computer science professionals, discusses why it is imperative for the field to embrace a diversity of perspectives to address today's global challenges. Source: National Science Foundation

A research team at the Georgia Institute of Technology has received a $2.7 million award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop technology intended to help address the challenges of "big data" – data sets that are both massive and complex.
ATLANTA – Nov. 14, 2012 – Georgia Tech, along with partner research organizations on the Keeneland Project, including the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, the National Institute for Computational Sciences and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, announced today that the project has completed installation and acceptance of the Keeneland Full Scale System (KFS).

Intel recently announced that Vishal Gupta, a PhD student of Karsten Schwan (Comp Sci), and Aparna Chandramowlishwaran, a PhD student of Rich Vuduc (Comp Sci & Engineering), are recipients of 2012 Intel Fellowships.
Georgia Tech has developed a new algorithm that quickly determines betweenness centrality for streaming graphs. “Unlike existing algorithms, our system doesn’t restart the computational process from scratch each time a new edge is inserted into a graph,” said David Bader (Comp Sci & Eng).
