Modelling For All Logo

Computer modelling provides new ways of thinking about, understanding, and exploring complex real-world processes such as, how a virus spreads through social networks, how wealth is distributed amongst a population where the individuals have differing access to education, and how people interact with energy and each other and how this interplay effects the environment.

The aim of the project is to significantly increase the number of students and researchers who can build and analyse models that describe a wide variety of real-world phenomena. The project has created a online agent-based modelling tool that can be easily used with collaboration software such as discussion groups, chat clients and within networking web sites.

The project team is working with tutors at Oxford to develop online tutorials that support undergraduate and master's courses in subjects such vaccination and migration.
