Abstract

Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) is a cutting-edge technique to understand various social phenomena. ABM focuses from global phenomena to individuals in the model and tries to observe how individuals with individual characteristics or “agents” will behave as a group. However, the importance of the modeling methodology has not been common yet even in the academic convergent technology societies. The paper discusses the principles, strength, and weakness of ABM. The paper also describes the role of simulation sciences in social system domains and how ABM should be a new standard of such analysis.
