Agent-Based Modelling

On June 9th, our director Liz Archibald and OR modeller Benjamin Schumann were invited to the economic consultancy Oxera in central London to provide a general introduction to Agent-Based Modelling. Ben talked about the reasons for agents in computer modelling, their four key characteristics and how to implement them practically. This was followed by a step-by-step walk-through of building a simple Agent-Based Model in AnyLogic. The presentation was well-received across Oxera staff from their London, Oxford and Brussels offices.
