In the past weeks we have developed an agent based social simulation for the COVID crisis (ASSOCC). The results are continuously updated on the website of the project: https://simassocc.org/. At the moment we have quite a complex model that does a good job to simulate the epidemiological, economic and social effects of the crisis and their dependencies. The model now runs with 1000 agents.
The whole model is built in NetLogo and now reached its limits. In order to move on to scenarios with […]
