Accepting that opioid use and crime are associated and develop together, amongst opioid-using criminals the need for opioids may cause crime on a day-to-day basis or both may tend to be determined by some other set of factors. Previous studies have either failed to allow for such other factors, or have failed to compare opioid users to adequate control(More)
Ninety-two cocaine users were interviewed in Scotland. Most were middle-class nasal users, also used other drugs and generally gave cocaine a positive rating. One half of them had at some time used cocaine more than once a week. For some, this period lasted some months, when as much as 30 'lines' of cocaine were used per day of cocaine use. More of these(More)
Project Albert is a modeling and simulation initiative of the United States marine corps that combines the rapid prototyping of agent-based distillations with the exploratory power of data farming to rapidly generate insight into military questions (Fry 2002). Data farming focuses on the complete landscape of possible system responses, rather than(More)
Defense analysts must explore and provide insight into how future network-enabled forces will perform across a range of threat capabilities and scenarios. An emerging approach to this challenging problem is the use of agent-based models (ABMs) and novel experimental designs. When used within a data farming framework, these designs allow rapid exploration of(More)
This paper discusses the problem of modeling phenomena with a low base rate of occurrence using terrorism as an example. The paper suggests that Data Farming—developing data sets through utilization of massive computation—may be a useful way to deal with this challenge. An abstract model is described and analyzed as a simple case study. Preliminary results(More)
