Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation

A Tool for Anticipatory Technological Impact Assessment


This article introduces the topic of the special volume and gives an overview of the theoretical and methodological principles of agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS). We present the potentials of the new method and argue why technological impact assessment and ABMS could benefit from a closer collaboration. Finally, we discuss the limitations of ABMS and current challenges.
