Intelligent Systems And Their Societies Walter Fritz

Experimental Sociology

 

We have seen much of the inner workings of IS's and societies. We have used concepts that we could express mathematically. This paves the way for an experimental sociology. It should now be possible to represent a number of IS's in a computer, thus create an artificial society, and observe what kind of society they form and how their society works. We can introduce changes into their environment (resources and aggressive societies) and study the effect. It seems that much can be learned by such experiments. In the fare future even an existing society, with most of its sub societies can be modeled and proposed government policies tried out within the computer before exposing a real society to them.
