Philippe J. Giabbanelli, Rik Crutzen
2017 Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine  
Second, we propose a three steps' process to tackle all limitations together and discuss its use to develop future models for food behaviours.  ...  Agent-based models (ABMs) have the potential to help policymakers evaluate food behaviour interventions from a systems perspective.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors are indebted to Professor Andy Jones (University of East Anglia) for his feedback on an early version of this work and for pointing to previous studies that used a GPS.  ...

Digital Nudging with Recommender Systems: Survey and Future Directions [article]

Mathias Jesse, Dietmar Jannach
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This indicates that there is a huge potential to develop future recommender systems that leverage the power of digital nudging in order to influence the decision-making of users.  ...  These systems thereby influence which information is easily accessible to us and thus affect our decision-making processes though the automated selection and ranking of the presented content.  ...  In these cases, the use of impersonated agents (avatars), as done previously, e.g., in [67] , could be one viable option to increase the effectiveness of the recommender.  ...

2011 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
However, interventions to control people's use of the environment alter the incentives that natural resource users face, and therefore their decisions about resource use.  ...  Research on the interactions between human behaviour and ecological systems tends to focus on the direct effects of human activities on ecosystems, such as biodiversity loss.  ...  Scenarios of future land use can be used to represent alternative futures, ideally based on explicit models of the processes by which these land-use changes come to pass, for example, the LandSHIFT model  ...
