RAMPED – DAY 1 AGENDA

8 Jul , 2016  

Day 1 Morning Agenda

8:30-9:00 AM – Welcome & Preliminaries

9:00-9:45 AM – An 10K foot introduction to multi-agent systems

  • Start downloading or copying NetLogo to your Desktop
    • Online here, or on your USB Drives (Resources/Software/Windows/NetLogo)
  • We’ll watch a few videos – and you’ll write basic/amend rules of the agents
  • We’ll post lecture slides and content here (after the session)

9:45-10:00 AMBreaktime

  • Get up, move around, socialize, chat, it’s your free time!

10:00 – 11:00AMPlay & Learn from the Ants Model

  • If installation of NetLogo didn’t work (for whatever reason) go to the online version of the model!
  • Objectives:
    • Basic: Add a new food source (need a hint? Having problems?, Giving Up? )
    • Advanced: Add starvation / death to model
      • You’ll need to add a variable to the “ant” to keep track of “hunger level” (Hint)
      • You’ll need to increment (add too) that variable some constant each time the ant doesn’t find food: set foo foo + ??
      • You’ll need to decrement (remove from) that variable some constant each time the ant finds food:  set foo foo - ??(or simply reset it to zero? set foo 0)
      • You’ll need to perform some action if that variable reaches some threshold (die)
      • Need real, guided, help? Tutorial #3 from NetLogo UserManual should give you enough to bridge the gap (direct link without sidebar)

11:00 – 11:15 AMSync, Debrief, Preparing for The Afternoon

  • Pain points
  • What’s working/What’s not
