Future Research and Conclusions

(p.181) Part IV Future Research and Conclusions

Joshua M. Epstein

Princeton University Press

This part offers some ideas for future research and applications of Agent_Zero. It first considers Agent_Zero's numerical cartography before discussing its affective, cognitive, and social components. It then examines the feasibility of increasing the modeling resolution, scaling up the space and the agent population, and the model's contribution to empiricism. It also reviews some of the testable hypotheses advanced by Agent_Zero and various model interpretations relating to civil violence, economics, health behavior, psychology, jury dynamics, the formation and dynamics of networks, mutual escalation dynamics, and birth and intergenerational transmission. This part ends by presenting the book's overall conclusions and emphasizing the importance of Agent_Zero in establishing neurocognitive foundations for generative social science.

Keywords:   numerical cartography, affective component, cognitive component, social component, Agent_Zero, civil violence, economics, health behavior, mutual escalation, generative social science
