Game Informs Electronics Use

Electrical engineering professor Gayatri Mehta continues her study of the latest version of the UNTANGLED online game series, which researches electronic algorithms. Gamers have to unlock a series of blocks inlaid on a graph while adhering to specific constraints. This process mimics the challenge of efficiently organizing components within electronic devices. By analyzing the players' solutions collected from the game, Mehta and her team can develop algorithms leading to architecture designs that could be used in portable devices.
