Let's check the "we likely live in a simulation" hypothesis, recently brought to fame by Elon Musk.
New guest author Brian van Vuuren shows a programmatic approach to reading and shape file data and convert it into AnyLogic polyline objects for further manipulation.
A warm welcome to our newest guest author Brian van Vuuren.
Letäs explore some ideas on how the 2nd sexiest job of the 21st century can be useful for the sexiest: Data Scientists.
How would the world of business look today if agent-based modelling would have become big a few years ago, just like Big Data & Analytics did? A theoretical play with some insight for how Analytics should be used in operations & manufacturing today.
Lets explore how to get the road traffic and pedestrian libraries to work together in AnyLogic.
Let's explore the AnyLogic road traffic library and understand its foundations. We will use it to investigate the high level of incidents in my local village.
Big question, big topic. Is it possible that a certain part of Analytics currently passes by on an important topic altogether? Join the discussion, I am keen to hear what you think.
This week, guest editor Justin Rawlings ties together his previous two posts (see "Build your own level-up button" and "Dynamic animation tweaks") to create an integrated interaction system for your models. He came up with an ingenious way to handle agent animation using state charts and honestly, this is a really cool idea.
This week, guest author Justin Rawlings introduces two more ways to improve model animation using AnyLogic dynamic properties.
Guest editor Justin Rawlings explores a custom way to navigate through your model by using the programmatic features of view area objects.
Introducing our first guest editor, Justin Rawlings from Australia. Very warm welcome :-)
The view area object in AnyLogic is a useful little helper for that. Build-in support allows you to jump around any part of your model. You can also apply a bit of coding and access the full power of the view area. Make your client happy and give your mouse a break.
Check out two neat tricks to improve your model user interface: an interface ribbon and a way to check out every agent directly.
Get to know a little AnyLogic helper that can improve your models massively: the shy lightbulb.
In our second post on improving your model UI, we look at practical steps to improve the experiment setup screen.
The first part of a min-series on improving user interfaces in simulation models. Focusses on some general principles for a start.
Do you struggle explaining your work? What do you tell people when they ask? Or is that easy for you but the challenge is to hook potential clients or improve your simulation consulting skills? I found a really useful tool to all of these questions…
The recent Nobel laureate in Economics has a lot to say for simulation practitioners. Find out how agent-based models just wait for his inputs.
