Agent_Zero

Agent_Zero: Toward Neurocognitive Foundations for Generative Social Science animations by Joshua M. Epstein. press.princeton.edu/titles/10169.html

Posted here are the fourteen Movies discussed in this final volume of the groundbreaking trilogy on agent-based modeling In this pioneering synthesis, Joshua Epstein introduces a new theoretical entity: "Agent_Zero." This software individual, or "agent," is endowed with distinct emotional/affective, cognitive/deliberative, and social modules. Grounded in contemporary neuroscience, these internal components interact to generate observed, often far-from-rational, individual behavior. When multiple agents of this new type move and interact spatially, they collectively generate an astonishing range of dynamics spanning the fields of social conflict, psychology, public health, law, network science, and economics.
