We have updated AnyLogic to version 8.5 and it is now available for download. Changes have also been made to the AnyLogic Cloud API. Read on for a summary of the key changes, the full list can be found in the linked change log. There's a whole lot of changes, see the new things you can do!
In connection with the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 and the first humans on the moon, the Wall Street Journal ran an Inside View article by Andy Kessler, Better Living Through Simulations. What a combination, the moon landings and simulation!
The moon landings were straight-up awesome and, perhaps like many of you, we enjoyed much of the Apollo 11 anniversary coverage. So, when we found a WSJ article featuring simulation in...
Two AnyLogic events, on opposite sides of the planet, demonstrated the value of simulation when applied in industry. The almost simultaneous seminars also provided insight into the recent developments in cloud-based simulation as well as the combined use of simulation with artificial intelligence (AI). Here, you can find materials and photos from the events in Australia and the United Kingdom.
The How to train a policy for controlling a machine webinar demonstrated the use of a simulation environment in deep reinforcement learning. The recording is available below, along with the supplementary materials – so you can try it out for yourself and explore some of the possibilities. The materials above in combination with the video recording of the webinar cover everything that is needed to reproduce the entire training setup.
This free educational textbook uses AnyLogic to teach the art of process centric modeling. Also known as discrete-event modeling, process-centric modeling is good for capturing business processes, where systems can be described as a sequence of actions. Capturing a system in a process-centric model is not always straightforward but, using clear examples and the simulation modeling tool AnyLogic, this book teaches you how.
Here is a video showing how to install and get going with the Windows version of AnyLogic Cloud Lite — the easy service for storing, launching and analyzing models in a private cloud. In this post, we go through how to get started! And also, why you might want to! For easy operational use of AnyLogic simulation models within an organization, read on!
The videos of the presentations and workshops from AnyLogic Conference 2019 are online. A diverse cross-section of organizations presented insightful and inspiring examples of simulation at work, highlighting the broad adoption of simulation modeling for commercial and industrial interests. If you know what you want to see, jump straight to the playlist. Otherwise, here is a brief overview of the themes and some content pointers.
