  • High-Probability Guarantees in Repeated Games: Theory and Applications in Information Theory

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):189 - 204
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (464 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We introduce a “high-probability” framework for repeated games with incomplete information. In our non-equilibrium setting, players aim to guarantee a certain payoff with high probability, rather than in expected value. We provide a high-probability counterpart of the classical result of Mertens and Zamir for the zero-sum repeated games. Any payoff that can be guaranteed with high pr... View full abstract»

  • Information-Theoretic Approach to Strategic Communication as a Hierarchical Game

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):205 - 218
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper analyzes the information disclosure problems originated in economics through the lens of information theory. Such problems are radically different from the conventional communication paradigms in information theory since they involve different objectives for the encoder and the decoder, which are aware of this mismatch and act accordingly. This leads, in our setting, to a hierarchical c... View full abstract»

  • Dynamic Watermarking: Active Defense of Networked Cyber–Physical Systems

    The coming decades may see the large scale deployment of networked cyber-physical systems to address global needs in areas such as energy, water, health care, and transportation. However, as recent events have shown, such systems are vulnerable to cyber attacks. Being safety critical, their disruption or misbehavior can cause economic losses or injuries and loss of life. It is therefore important ... View full abstract»

  • Decision Making With Quantized Priors Leads to Discrimination

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):241 - 255
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (582 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Racial discrimination in decision-making scenarios such as police arrests appears to be a violation of expected utility theory. Drawing on results from the science of information, we discuss an information-based model of signal detection over a population that generates such behavior as an alternative explanation to taste-based discrimination by the decision maker or differences among the racial p...

    We consider a general framework for a human-computer interface whereby the human's knowledge is represented as a point in Euclidean space, the intention of the human is signaled to the computer over a noisy channel, and the computer queries the human in a manner that is amenable to human operation. With these constraints at hand, we demonstrate a class of systems that are nonetheless information-t... View full abstract»

  • A Study of the Boltzmann Sequence-Structure Channel

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):286 - 305
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (378 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We rigorously study a channel that maps sequences from a finite alphabet to self-avoiding walks in the 2-D grid, inspired by a model of protein folding from statistical physics and studied empirically by biophysicists. This channel, which we call the Boltzmann sequence-structure channel, is characterized by a Boltzmann/Gibbs distribution with a free parameter corresponding to temperature. In our p...

    Molecular communication (MC) is the most promising communication paradigm for nanonetwork realization since it is a natural phenomenon observed among living entities with nanoscale components. Since MC significantly differs from classical communication systems, it mandates reinvestigation of information and communication theoretical fundamentals. The closest examples of MC architectures are presen... View full abstract»

  • Doubly Penalized LASSO for Reconstruction of Biological Networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):319 - 329
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1592 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Reconstruction of biological and biochemical networks is a crucial step in extracting knowledge and causal information from large biological data sets. This task is particularly challenging when dealing with time-series data from dynamic networks. We have developed a new method, called doubly penalized least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (DPLASSO), for the reconstruction of dynamic bio... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (770 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The field of systems biology thrives upon the use of models to organize biological knowledge and make predictions of complex processes that are hard to measure. When attempting to generate model descriptions for metabolic systems, one arrives at a crossroads. A variety of mathematical explanations are available for metabolic data with varying degrees of resolution from simple to complex. Biologica... View full abstract»

  • A Critical Survey of Deconvolution Methods for Separating Cell Types in Complex Tissues

    Identifying properties and concentrations of components from an observed mixture, known as deconvolution, is a fundamental problem in signal processing. It has diverse applications in fields ranging from hyperspectral imaging to noise cancellation in audio recordings. This paper focuses on in-silico deconvolution of signals associated with complex tissues into their constitutive cell-type-specific... View full abstract»

  • An Information-Theoretic View of EEG Sensing

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):367 - 384
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1890 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper uses an information-theoretic lens to examine the use and implementation of electroencephalography (EEG) systems for neural imaging. There is a widespread belief in the clinical and neuroscientific community that ultra-high-density EEG imaging of the brain (beyond the typically used few hundred or fewer electrodes) will not yield higher spatial resolution. Theoretically, this belief res... View full abstract»

    The presence of abnormally expanded glutamine (Q) repeats within specific proteins (e.g., huntingtin) is the well-established cause of several neurogenerative diseases, including Huntington disease and spinocerebellar ataxias. However, the impact of “expanded Q” stretches on the protein function is not well understood, mostly due to lack of knowledge about the physiological role of Q... View full abstract»
