About the Course

In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will create an agent-based model (ABM) that simulates the spread of a hypothetical virus through close contact between agents in a virtual world. By doing so, you will learn about the wonders of agent-based modeling as a paradigm, as well as the basics of NetLogo - one of the most famous and powerful simulation environments in this realm. One of the beauties of ABM is that we can often observe emergent properties arising from the coded interactions between agents in the simulated world. Therefore, by experimenting with different interaction rules and parameters, we can gain an intuitive understanding of the underlying dynamics of varied complex phenomena. Such skills are extremely valuable for any decision making position, as well as for education, especially in a world where interconnectivity seems to be ubiquitous. In this way, this model and project are highly attuned to the global pandemic that we’re facing due to the spread of the Coronavirus. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

Very good introduction. Had to make frequent pauses in instructor's lessons to look for details but a good final project resulted. Great satisfaction in completing a project from start to finish.
