Abstract

The purpose of the paper is to describe a work-in-progress in the application of a distributed agency and neurofuzzy system methodology to a multi-dimensional model on a complex social system. This work introduces a study case focuses on decision-making modelling system on religious affiliation preferences. We use a type-2 neuro-fuzzy approach to configure cognitive rules into agent in order to built a multi-agent model for social simulation.
