Demonstration and Presentation at
The key concept of this work is the consideration of humans as sensors.
Human-in-the-loop Simulation integrates humans in simulation.
Fusion of Real and Virtual Worlds by an unified Agent-based approach.
Interdisciplinary Concept → Merit of social and computer science.
Agent-based methods are established for modelling and studying of complex dynamic systems and for implementing distributed intelligent systems!
The fourth class is the novelty introduced in this work with application to social mobility and network simulation
Crowd sensing is performed via mobile chat bot agents
Interaction of real humans with agents with simulation world in real-time
Survey performed by chat bot agents (computational agents) creates Digital Twins in the virtual world from survey participants
Parameters P of twin behaviour model derived from survey data feedback F retrieved by a user dialogue D.
There are three classes of agents:
A physical agent represents some kind of physical entity. The behaviour is derived from real world and consists of mobility, interaction, and decision making
→ ABM/ABS/ABMS → Virtual World
A computational agent is just mobile software that is used to perform distributed data processing, e.g., Mobile Crowd Sensing
→ ABC → Real + Virtual World
A simulation agent controls a simulation or field/survey study
→ ABC → Virtual World
