Agent-based Modelling

Pete sent me an intriguing article about emergent phenomena and agent-based modelling:

“Adding new lanes to a highway often makes rush-hour traffic jams far worse – a result known as Braess’s paradox after the German operations research engineer who discovered it in 1968…”


It’d really make for an interesting field of IS research. Thanks Pete!

That sounds interesting! I actually emailed my course coordinator asking if the uni has any courses based around emergent behaviours … I’m keen! =P
