Moderate and polarized opinions. Using empirical data for an agent-based simulation / Stefanelli, Annalisa (Natural and Social Science Interface, ETH) ; Seidl, Roman (Natural and Social Science Interface, ETH)
The selection of a potential site for a deep ground repository for nuclear waste in Switzerland is designed as a participatory process where the citizens’ opinions play a central role. Understanding how Swiss citizens form and change their opinions over time on this specific issue is this study’s main goal. [...]

Strategic interactions and information exchange on networks : an agent based simulation model of landowner behaviour in conservation incentive schemes (extended abstract) / Banerjee, Simanti (University of Nebraska. Department of Agricultural Economics) ; Maharaj, Savi (University of Stirling. Computing Science and Mathematics)
Starting with data obtained from human-subject experiments to investigate farmers’ responses to a conservation incentive scheme, we derive a cognitive model of the farmers’ decision-making behaviour, and implement this model within an agent-based simulation of farmers interacting via different types of social network.
