Abstract: This paper focuses on the design and development of a spatial Evolutionary Multi-Agent Social Network (EMAS) to investigate the underlying emergent macroscopic behavioral dynamics of civil violence, as a result of the microscopic local movement and game-theoretic interactions between multiple goal-oriented agents. Agents are modeled from multi-disciplinary perspectives and their behavioral strategies are evolved over time via collective co-evolution and independent learning. Experimental results reveal the onset of fascinating global emergent phenomenon as well as interesting patterns of group movement and behavioral development. Analysis of the results provides new insights into the intricate behavioral dynamics that arises in civil upheavals. Collectively, EMAS serves as a vehicle to facilitate the behavioral development of autonomous agents as well as a platform to verify the effectiveness of various violence management policies which is paramount to the mitigation of casualties. © 2006 IEEE.
