Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 441)


This chapter presents a current effort to model agent-personality using personality profile data extracted from individuals in the population. The obtained profiles are then used in a personality-driven behaviour engine to create realistic scenarios where massive evacuations can be simulated to promote awareness of the risks and emergency procedures in said scenarios.
