Agent Based Modeling in HPC

Date and Time: 
2014 April 8th @ 10:15am
CG1 Auditorium
Mike Page

In this talk, I will offer a definition of Agent Based Modeling (ABM), review a list of software tools used to conduct ABM, discuss some ABM application areas and present some results from the field. I will also show how one ABM tool (FLAME) has made the transition from serial execution to a large-scale, distributed memory hardware environment. This will lead to a call for ABM studies of large populations in social and computational sciences.

Speaker Description: 

Mike Page is currently an HPC Software Analyst seeking contract opportunities under the name 'Theory and Practice’. His career in HPC has spanned from the time he worked for Cray Research, Inc. He was a Software Engineer in NCAR’s CISL and then RAL from 2003 to 2012.

Theory and Practice offers HPC application support and optimization services.

Mike gave his first presentation centered on agent-based modeling at a UN conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change in Potsdam, Germany in 2005 near the building where the Michelson-Morley experiments on the speed of light were performed.
