The Gen* Project

Gen* is an (French National Research Agency) funded project having the ambition to propose tools and methods to generate realistic synthetic populations for agent-based social simulation. 

The Gen* project aims at combining applied mathematics and computer science approaches in order to incorporate arbitrary data and to generate statistically valid populations of artificial agents. Generic methods applicable to different use cases (e.g. urban/rural populations, downscaling needs...) will be provided and implemented in R and Java in order to be integrated as open-source libraries in existing agent-based simulation platforms. This offer will of course be completed with a methodological guide and several tutorials in order for end-users to master the methods and their combinations.
