Computer Games and Economics Experiments
HP Labs has developed a software platform, called MUMS, for moderating economics games between human and/or robot participants. The primary feature of this platform is a flexible scripting language that allows a researcher to implement any economics games in a relative short time. This platform has been used to implement a wide variety of business related games including variations of a retailer game with simulated consumers and complex business rules, a double sided call market and negotiation in a procurement scenario. These games are constructed to accurately simulate HP business environments.
