h2. Course Project Topics from Previous Semesters:


h3. Literature Critiques

* Multi-agent data mining: Survey of existing approaches and the potential applicability of an agent-based economic market approach.
* Survey and critical discussion of current technology used for business-to-business Internet markets, and the potential role of agent-based technology in B-to-B Internet markets.
* A comparative study of two artificial stock market models (Santa Fe ASM and a model due to Doyne Farmer)

h3. Experimental Studies using Previously Developed Software
* Experiments with a spatial (cellular automaton) iterated prisoner's dilemma game
* Experimental studies using Chris Cook's Schelling Segregation Model demo available for downloading (with automatic installation software) at the ACE Computational Laboratories and Demonstration Software Site
* Experimental studies using Chris Cook's Axelrod Tournament demo available for downloading (with automatic installation software) at the ACE Computational Laboratories and Demonstration Software Site
* Experimental Studies using the TNG Laboratory (effects of changing learning parameters, payoffs, relative numbers of agents,....), available for downloading (with automatic installation software) at the ACE Computational Laboratories and Demonstration Software Site

h3. Experimental Studies using Originally Developed Software

* An ACE stock market model in which learning agents receiving a stream of actual historical stock market data can condition their investment strategies on fundamental information and/or on data patterns relied on by commonly used technical trading rules (RSI, Bolling Band,...).
* The effect of memory length on the iterated prisoner's dilemma game
* A graphical agent construction kit for the iterated prisoner's dilemma game (generalizable to other games)
* *Hunters: An Agent-Based Artificial Society*, by Andy Schlei. This ACE computational lab for the study of a hunter-gatherer society is available for downloading (with automatic installation software) at the ACE Computational Laboratories and Demonstration Software Site)
* *Hunters: An Agent-Based Artificial Society*, by Andy Schlei.
* A three-player iterated prisoner's dilemma tournament
* Experimental studies using variously extended versions of Chris Cook's Schelling Segregation Model Demo
* IPD: How an agent's "conscience" affects the evolution of cooperation
* An artificial stock market model
* An agent-based model for the experimental study of the economic effects of prohibiting smoking in bars
