As the title says we are going to try to model and simulate human behavior
Because it's a fantastic opportunity to develop a methodology
Synergies and shared interests arose between the different groups
All working together to try and simulate what happend in the past and how
We are going to try and modelling human behaviour
It's the moment when governments need to investigate in research and higher education
This project is quite a conceptual project
It's a risky project
The SimulPast project is a transdisciplinary project
One of the main achievements will be sharing and trust within the teams
Human society is, we are, incredibly complex sometimes
Machines cannot think, people behind machines have to think
How we can animate the agents in our simulations
Because they are fashionable in our society today
I think that in Spain, at the moment, there's no other similar project with this level of importance
Understanding who we are, were we are going and where we come from
Welcome, to the SimulPast project.
I think that SimulPast...
One of the important aspects of this project is...
An interesting, ambitious project and moreover an innovative project...
SimulPast...
SimulPast is...
SimulPast is the opportunity...
Really creative and imaginative...
SimulPast...
We are already participating because we are trying to develop SimulPast...
From this surely we'll develop important and new approaches.
