Agent-Based Simulation for Service and Social Systems and Large-Scale Social Simulation Framework

Part of the Evolutionary Economics and Social Complexity Science book series (EESCS,volume 28)

Abstract

Because of the dynamic and heterogeneous interactions among human beings with their bounded rationality, a service system discussed in Service Science, Management, and Engineering (SSME) is recognized as a complex adaptive system to which quantitative scientific analysis is difficult to apply. In this chapter, we introduce a computational approach for such complex adaptive systems called agent-based simulation. Since the 1990s, agent-based simulation has gained significance as a tool to reproduce complex stock market interactions by modeling human traders as software agents. Recently, agent-based social simulations are utilized to support the decision-making of city planners for various real social issues. For this purpose, we have developed a large-scale social simulation framework “X10-based Agent Simulation on Distributed Infrastructure (XASDI).” In this chapter, we will introduce our earlier work with a small number of agents and then describe the large-scale social simulation framework and its applications.
