Multi-agent Social Simulation and its Application

In recent times, the domains of Multi-Agent Social Simulation (MASS) and Agent-Based Simulation (ABS) have been harnessed for a broad spectrum of applications. Advances in artificial intelligence, big data analytics, and high-performance computing have paved the way for large-scale and comprehensive MASS. Such simulations offer valuable insights into real-world social phenomena, including pandemic response, traffic management, and disaster recovery. In this talk, I will elucidate several case studies where MASS has been employed in tangible applications and will also discuss the prospective horizons of MASS.


Dr. Itsuki Noda is a professor of Research Faculty of Information Science and Technology in Hokkaido University, Japan.

He received the B.E., M.E. and Ph.D., degrees in engineering from Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, in 1987, 1989, and 1995, respectively. He worked at Electrotechnical Laboratory (ETL) as a researcher since 1992, at National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (the successor of ETL) as a senior researcher since 2000, and at Hokkaido University as a professor since 2021. He was also a visiting researcher of Stanford University in 1999, and worked as a staff of Council of Science and Technology Policy of Japanese government in 2003. His main research domain covers multiagent social simulation, machine learning, RoboCup and disaster mitigation information.

He was a founding member of RoboCup and promoted Soccer Simulation League since 1995. He was the president of RoboCup Federation during 2014 to 2017. He was also the president of Japanese Society of Artificial Intelligence during 2020 to 2022. In addition, he is one of founders of a venture company, Mirai Share, for taxi-share system, which is a result of the social simulation research.
