I’m working with Nate Osgood and other folks to develop better modeling tools for epidemiologists. Right now we’re trying to develop a category-based framework for agent-based models. It’s a bit tough since many different techniques are used in such models, without yet an overarching discipline—Nate likened it to the ‘wild West’. I have a lot to learn, but I thought I should start keeping notes on our conversations.
