Dr. Francien Dechesne of the Delft University of Technology Centre for Ethics and Technology, and colleagues, have published No smoking here: values, norms and culture in multi-agent systems, forthcoming in Artificial Intelligence and Law.
Here is the abstract:
We use the example of the introduction of the anti-smoking legislation to model the relationship between the cultural make-up, in terms of values, of societies and the acceptance of and compliance with norms. We present two agent-based simulations and discuss the challenge of modeling sanctions and their relation to values and culture.
