Real-Time Data-Driven Simulation Systems (RealSim)June 12, 2013
- Scale, speed & fidelity are three important aspects in simulation-based predictive/planning needs of DHS & related agencies. Few existing systems address the desired combination of these aspects in critical applications. The RealSim code is being developed to provide these capabilities.
- Scale & speed are enabled by novel parallel discrete event simulation technologies. System keeps up with user needs, scaling from PDAs & GPUs to Supercomputers seamlessly. For fidelity, RealSim scales to the finest granularity on a range of applications.
- RealSim helps capture unexpected behavior emergence in populations across a range of policies & constraints. It is designed to simulate the value of real-time information for optimal investment decisions, to formulate informed policies, & to determine the best tradeoff between investment & returned value.
