Simulations and agent-based modeling

In 2013 the Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program carried out simulations of the actions and interactions of autonomous agents in order to assess their effects on systems as a whole.

In this area of research techniques were reviewed for characterizing the performance of environmental models.

Within the ASA project “Structural change of the Finnish Economy – a Systems Approach” funded by the Finnish Ministry of Employment and the Economy (2012-2013) a regional socioeconomic agent-based model customized for three regions in Finland.

 

Agent-based modeling

Since 2011 the Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program has been developing an agent-based model (ABM) “Dream Valley” which is able to simulate the economic, social, and environmental interactions and dynamics of a region. More

Model performance

The Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program reviewed techniques available across various fields for characterizing the performance of environmental models with a focus on numerical, graphical, and qualitative methods. More
