Abstract:

Human behavior representation (HBR) is an elusive, yet critical goal for many in the simulation community. Re- quirement specifications related to HBR often exceed cur- rent capabilities. There exist a number of tools, techniques and frameworks to model and simulate HBR, but they are constrained and do not generalize well. Even with a vi- brant research community, certain HBR characteristics re- main beyond our grasp, unless some unforeseen disruptive technologies emerge. We survey the state of the practice for HBR, discuss ongoing research, and identify what ap- pear to be insurmountable challenges. Along with expos- ing the essential characteristics of HBR and their current level of maturity, we propose a generational framework for considering HBR capabilities. While a number of HBR issues have been addressed in the literature, there is no published discussion explicitly detailing its constraints and limitations.
