报告内容摘要

Society is faced with a growing amount of  property damage and casualties from man-made and natural disasters.  Developing societal resilience to those disasters is critical but  challenging. In particular, societal resilience is jointly determined by  federal and local governments, private and non-profit sectors, and private  citizens. We will present a sequence of games among players such as federal,  local, and foreign governments, private citizens, and adaptive adversaries.  In particular, the governments and private citizens seek to protect lives,  property, and critical infrastructure from both adaptive terrorists and  non-adaptive natural disasters. The federal government can provide grants to  local governments and foreign aid to foreign governments to protect against  both natural and man-made disasters; and all levels of government can provide  pre-disaster preparation and post-disaster relief to private citizens.  Private citizens can also, of course, make their own investments. The  tradeoffs between protecting against man-made and natural disasters, specifically  between preparedness and relief, efficiency and equity, and between private  and public investment, will be discussed. Recent research on big data  analytics, border security, fire management, and decision modeling on social  media rumor spreading and management will also be discussed.
