State-of-the-art general-purpose simulation ecosystem for applied AI

AnyLogic is the market and technology leader in the realm of general-purpose simulation. As a result, AnyLogic models can help AI practitioners in many different practical applications, including:

Why use AnyLogic with AI?

  • Open API and programming capability – Support for across-the-board object-oriented development with open API alongside visual modeling capabilities.
  • AnyLogic Cloud – A proprietary software for server-based model execution. RESTful APIs in JavaScript, Python, and Java allow for abstracting away from directly interfacing with the model.
  • Agent-based modeling – AnyLogic’s unique agent-based technologies naturally position it as a powerful model building platform for training environments used in multi-agent reinforcement learning schemes.
  • State-of-the-art simulation technologies – AnyLogic is the only platform that supports all simulation methods (Discrete Event, Agent-Based, System Dynamics) and any combination of them, in addition to specialized modeling libraries for material handling, process modeling, fluid, rail, pedestrian, and road traffic.
  • Ease-of-use – AnyLogic allows the use of visual modeling languages, scripting, and external libraries. Native support for flowcharts, state-charts, action charts, and stock and flow diagrams allow for development with ease, while native support for scripting provides extensibility.
  • Proven application in a variety of industries – AnyLogic is the de-facto simulation platform for Fortune 500 companies across the globe. The familiarity of these businesses with AnyLogic is advantageous to AI practitioners who want to use the platform as part of AI solutions for these companies.

Training AI-agents with Microsoft Project Bonsai


AnyLogic has joined forces with Microsoft to bring deep reinforcement learning and machine teaching capabilities of Project Bonsai to practical business applications. Through our work with Microsoft, we have developed an easy-to-use connector that allows you to use AnyLogic models as simulators connected to the Bonsai platform. This innovative and novel use of business-oriented simulation models brings state-of-the-art adaptive control and deep reinforcement learning to real-world manufacturing and operations. Business Analysts and Engineers alike are now able to utilize advanced Artificial Intelligence without the need to become data scientists.
