agent based models and simulations

Jul 13, 2009 at 11:31 PM

Howdy! I was wondering if you could point me to a good example/tutorial where I could learn how to build a simple agent based model/simulation. I am thinking that using the XBOX360 to actually run the simulation might be fun. This is not so much a graphical simulation but more of a work related project where my agents will resemble respondents in our system and be answering survey type questions. We want to spawn a quantity of agents to closely simulate our production system (so some black people, white people, shoppers, beer drinkers, nas car fans, etc.) and then run them through a battery of answering questions and see where the system puts them.

Thanks for any help!
