Reconstructing an Artificial Society on the Basis of Big Open Data
International Joint Conference on the Analysis of Images, Social Networks and Texts
In this paper we integrate big data into the computer model of an artificial society. The model is agent-based and consists of several modules, representing demographic, economic, financial processes, employment and consumption, educational and administrative institutions. In order to create an artificial society that would simulate Russian Federation in 2014 year we use big open data, including Federal State Statistics Service yearbooks and official information on the websites of the
... . Algorithm of an artificial society reconstruction includes creation of agents and organizations; distributing them among geographical regions; setting interrelations between agents, households and organizations. For the verification of the artificial society model we propose a DES-analysis method, which compares demographic, economic and social indicators of the simulation output data with the real values of these indicators in the base year. We present statistical analysis of modeling results variation in retrospective period.
