Barg receives NSF theoretic analysis grant

Professor Alexander Barg (ECE/ISR) is the principal investigator on a $278,000 National Science Foundation grant, "Collaborative Research: Digital Fingerprinting: Information-Theoretic Analysis and Code Design." The research involves information-theoretic and code design issues of digital fingerprinting. Professor Prakash Narayan (ECE/ISR) is co-PI for the project, which also involves collaborative research with the University of California, Riverside.

Digital fingerprinting is a technique designed to protect copyrighted contents, such as software, images, audio signals, and multimedia, from unauthorized distribution by non-compliant users. The primary objective of this research is to use information- and coding-theoretic methods to determine the capacity limit, or the maximum number of users with reliably fingerprinted data, that can be managed by the distributor, and to construct new, large-scale digital fingerprinting schemes.
