Dynamic model update and replacement are critical capabilities for modeling problems, the underlying processes of which are uncertain. The trajectory of most complex social phenomena, including conflicts, for instance, is never fixed and predictable. Symbiotic simulation is yet another emergent challenge that requires model adaptivity in response to(More)
Data has strong impact on different aspects of scientific thinking. The article starts with a milestone example of the impact of data. Then clarifications are offered for some basic concepts such as, belief, fact, data, information, and knowledge. Three perceptions of simulation, namely non-scientific, scientific, as well as military views are outlined.(More)
The significance of simulation modeling at multiple levels, scales, and perspectives is well recognized. However, existing proposals for developing such models are often application specific. The position advocated in this paper is that generic design principles for specifying and realizing multiresolution, multistage models are still lacking. Requirements(More)
In this article, the aim is define fuzzy agents with dynamic personality for the simulation of human behavior. Fuzzy sets are defined for personality traits and facets and the concise representation of personality knowledge is processed in fuzzy logic. This work is based on the personality knowledge as distilled from psychology [Ören and Ghasem-Aghaee(More)
