Cornell researchers and food safety software company iFoodDecisionSciences (iFoodDS), have developed a mathematical model that…
These video presentations introduce viewers to Agent-Based Models (ABMs) in food safety and a basic technical breakdown on how to build them. They cover a basic introduction into what situations they can be used for, key concepts in making one, and what kind of data can be produced from them. The presentations also shows basic overviews of ABMs built in the NetLogo-based “Environmental monitoring with an Agent-Based Model of Listeria” (EnABLe) to show how ABMs can be deployed in real life situations. Finally a brief example is shown using a demo facility in NetLogo.
