New NSF grant on improving post-earthquake reconnaissance missions

TransAnalytics researchers received an NSF grant to develop optimal learning theory that accounts for resource constraints, which naturally arise in field information collection. The developed methodology is expected to speed up the post-earthquake reconnaissance by more efficiently guiding inspection teams through their mission.
