This is a reading group devoted to agent-based modelling (ABM) and its applications. The group meets weekly and each week someone presents a paper/book chapter/topic of interest to them. Suitable topics include: advantages and limitations of agent-based modelling, building agent-based models (theoretical considerations, techniques, toolkits), applications of agent-based modelling in different problem domains. The main focus of the group is placed on theoretical aspects of agent-based modelling and on the links between agent-based modelling and statistics/machine learning. The group is very informal. All staff, students, research fellows etc. are welcome to join us.
Usual time: Thursday, 14:00 - 15:30
Location (unless otherwise noted): Malet Place Engineering, Room 6.12
