Green Security Games: A Game Theory Framework to Combat Crimes Against the Environment

Green Security Game refers to the general framework to model the repeated and strategic interaction between defenders and adversaries in green security domains such as wildlife protection and fishery protection. While our predictive analytics effort focuses on predicting where adversaries (e.g., poachers) will strike, our prescriptive analytics work provides recommendations to defenders (e.g., rangers) to conduct strategic, randomized patrols. In Green Security Game framework, the problem in these domains is cast as a repeated game.
