This paper introduces the development of an infrastructure to study highly complex systems of Ambient Intelligence (AmI) which involve a large number of users. The key ideas about the development of a multi-agent based simulation (MABS) for such purposes, Ubik, are given. The paper also extrapolates effective technologies in the development of multi-agent systems (MAS) to the field of MABS. In particular, the basis for the use of forensic analysis as a method to assist the analysis, understanding and debugging of Ubik in particular and the general MABS are set up.
