Social Simulation

Ph.D. Proposal - The Little Computer People Taxonomy and Social Physics Engine

This proposal describes our efforts to evaluate and operationalize a taxonomy and an accompanying framework or ``social physics engine''. Our taxonomy and accompanying framework would allow scientists to reproduce and evaluate existing models, collaborate on standards, share advances with other researchers and practitioners, allow for better communication and methodologies developed for new techniques, and allow for a more rigorous model-to-model analysis.
