Computers used as clients

Postby Diego Cerdán » Thu May 23, 2013 8:46 am

What kind of computer is going to be used to run the client software?

Can participants bring their own hardware to run their agents?

Hi Diego,

sorry, we haven't purchased the computers yet on which we are going to run the agents. Do you have any special requirements?

We will run all agents on our computers. First of all to make sure it is fair for all participants, and secondly to control the environment (no internet access, no use of mechanical turk, etc.) :)

I was just wondering how much CPU power we have avaliable as it might me a bottleneck for some agents.

It will most likely be some current generation laptop computers, otherwise it is too difficult for us to take them all to Beijing and back.
