This book thoroughly prepares intermediate-level readers for research in social science, organization studies, economics, finance, marketing science, and business science as complex adaptive systems. It presents the advantages of social simulation studies and business intelligence to those who are not familiar with the computational research approach, and offers experienced modelers various instructive examples of using agent-based modeling and business intelligence approaches to inspire their own work. In addition, the book discusses cutting-edge techniques for complex adaptive systems using their applications.
To date, business science studies have focused only on data science and analyses of business problems. However, using these studies to enhance the capabilities of conventional techniques in the fields has not been investigated adequately. This book addresses managing the issues of societies, firms, and organizations to profit from interaction with agent-based modeling, human- and computer- mixed systems, and business intelligence approaches, an area that is fundamental for complex but bounded rational business environments.
With detailed research by leading authors in the field, Innovative Approaches in Agent-Based Modelling and Business Intelligence inspires readers to join with other disciplines and extend the scope of the book with their own unique contributions. It also includes the common challenges encountered in computational social science and business science to enable researchers, students, and professionals to resolve their own problems.
Agent-based modeling/simulation is an emergent approach to the analysis of social and economic systems. It provides a bottom-up experimental method to be applied to social sciences such as economics, management, sociology, and politics as well as some engineering fields dealing with social activities. This book includes selected papers presented at the Fifth International Workshop on Agent-Based Approaches in Economic and Social Complex Systems held in Tokyo in 2007. It contains two invited papers given as the plenary and invited talks in the workshop and 21 papers presented in the six regular sessions: Organization and Management; Fundamentals of Agent-Based and Evolutionary Approaches; Production, Services and Urban Systems; Agent-Based Approaches to Social Systems; and Market and Economics I and II. The research presented here shows the state of the art in this rapidly growing field.
Lors d'un voyage organisé par une école, un train déraille dans un tunnel. L'accident, dont la cause semble aussi imprévisible qu'insolite, est si brutal que tous les passagers du train meurent sur le coup, exceptés deux garçons et une fille. Téru, Nobuo et Ako, trois rescapés se retrouvent enterrés sous les décombres du tunnel et sont désemparés en découvrant toute l'horreur de la réalité. Un huis clos angoissant se met lentement en place, montrant la réaction des trois jeunes élèves face au chaos.
