On Thursday, January 28 at 9:00am, hear from Dr. Latifur Kahn of UT Dallas as he talks about leading a team of 20 computer scientists who created a video game mechanism to detect cheating. Using popular video game Counter-Strike, researchers created a cheat detection mechanism that can be used in a variety of games. The research is especially important as it has the potential to affect the near $1 billion esports industry.
