Computational Model Library

Thoughtless conformity and spread of norms in an artificial society (version 1.0.0)

This model is based on Joshua Epstein’s (2001) model on development of thoughtless conformity in an artificial society of agents. This model is based on spread of horizontal norms in a horizontal society of agents. Esptein’s (2001) model showed “that individual thought – or computing – is often inversely related to the strength of a social norm. Once a norm is entrenched, we conform thoughtlessly”.
