Connecting R and NetLogo
Friday, November 18, 20016, 3:00 p.m.
Center for Social Complexity Suite
3rd Floor Research Hall
This talk will focus on the specifics of how you connect R to NetLogo. The open source agent based modeling platform NetLogo is used to create many agent based models. R is a powerful open source programming language that offers a wide array of tools for cleaning, analyzing, modeling and visualizing data. The first example will focus on how to get started using the well known Schelling segregation model from the models library in NetLogo. The talk will progress with examples of how I have used these tools to analyze and understand my own agent based models. Topics covered will include data import (agents, networks), data cleaning, running parameter sweeps, repeatability and replication, as well as ways to integrate code with data to help with repeatability and replication.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A session along with light refreshments.
