Agent_Zero: Toward Neurocognitive Foundations for Generative by Joshua M. Epstein

By Joshua M. Epstein

The ultimate quantity of the Groundbreaking Trilogy on Agent-Based Modeling

In this pioneering synthesis, Joshua Epstein introduces a brand new theoretical entity: Agent_Zero. This software program person, or "agent," is endowed with specific emotional/affective, cognitive/deliberative, and social modules. Grounded in modern neuroscience, those inner elements have interaction to generate saw, frequently far-from-rational, person habit. while a number of brokers of this new variety movement and have interaction spatially, they jointly generate an brilliant diversity of dynamics spanning the fields of social clash, psychology, public well-being, legislation, community technological know-how, and economics.

Epstein weaves a computational tapestry with threads from Plato, Hume, Darwin, Pavlov, Smith, Tolstoy, Marx, James, and Dostoevsky, between others. This transformative synthesis of social philosophy, cognitive neuroscience, and agent-based modeling will fascinate students and scholars of each stripe. Epstein's computing device courses are supplied within the e-book or on its Princeton collage Press web site, in addition to videos of his "computational parables.?

Agent_Zero is a sign departure in what it contains (e.g., a brand new synthesis of neurally grounded inner modules), what it eschews (e.g., typical behavioral imitation), the phenomena it generates (from genocide to monetary panic), and the modeling arsenal it bargains the medical community.

For generative social technological know-how, Agent_Zero offers a groundbreaking imaginative and prescient and the instruments to achieve it.
