Can entrepreneurs be programmed

In the tradition of Growing Artificial Societies this new paper argues:  
Agent-based simulation approach allows entrepreneurship researchers to act as the designer to find better ways in generating entrepreneurial outcomes by understanding alternative histories and examining plausible future. More powerful personal computer technologies, ready-to-use software like NetLogo, and a roadmap to doing agent-based simulation approach as proposed offer creative-minded researchers a new lens to advance the field of entrepreneurship.

I am skeptical. Intuition, alertness, discovery . . . how to program that? Who knows, it might  be possible in the future.
