While working on the Agent-based Model Simulation of the Trading along the Ancient Silk Route, one of the prominent models that inspired me was the… 2,468 more words


Pros & Cons of Agent-Based Modeling

In this post, we will look at the pros and cons of Agent-Based Models (ABM). ABMs are a common modeling tool use in computer simulations and can model some rather highly complex systems with little coding. 516 more words

Agent-based Modeling

Intro to Agent-Based Modeling

Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) is a computational approach to modeling reality. ABM is not new having a history dating back to the 1960s. What is new is that the average computer often will possess the needed computational power to use ABM for modeling purposes. 630 more words

Quick Hit on Replication

“Quick”…hopefully quicker than the last one as I’m fading fast.

I can tell you right now that there are parts of the Imperial model we’re just going to borrow, not rederive…at least for version 1. 616 more words

Imperial Model Quick Update

It’s just been over a week since I blogged last and a lot has been going on, not just in this replication effort. Zoe had a remote, prerecorded Zoom gig (which I’ve been helping out with) and tons of other things. 1,460 more words

Scaling the Imperial Model

We’re at the point where we have two population density models (Landscan for various years and ONS census data for local authorities projected onto a Landscan like grid). 1,244 more words

Imperial Model Structure: Workplaces (Part II)

Caveat: These are working blog posts with a lot of “thinking aloud”. I’m a computer science academic studying the engineering of agent based models, not an epidemiologist. 1,193 more words
