One path to training for cross-cultural competency is through immersion in a target culture, but real immersion can be expensive. Virtual immersion may be a viable alternative, but only if the experience is realistic and compelling enough. The characters in the virtual environment must embody the behaviors of the people in that culture in a way that is(More)
In order for agent-based technologies to play an effective role in simulation and trainingsynthetic force applications, they must carry outgenerate realistic and believable behaviors that are virtually indistinguishable from what a human actor might do under the same circumstances. However, systems that are capable of such complex behavior necessarily(More)
The intelligence analysis task of anticipating crises and providing decision makers with reasonable (supportable, explainable) possible futures is extremely difficult. To perform this task, a team of analysts must consider the political, economic, and military aspects of national governments and non-governmental organizations. This paper describes an(More)
Absfrucf-An engineering approach to attention and motor response is presented, culminating in the CODAM model of consciousness. Support for the presence of several of the relevant modules is discussed from data from a range of experimental paradigms. Two particular paradigms are explored in greater depth. CODAM's relation to other neural approaches to(More)
— Typical human-robot interaction (HRI) is through tele-operation or point-and-click interfaces that require extensive training to become proficient and require the user's complete attention to operate. For unmanned platforms to reach their full potential, users must be able to exert supervisory control over those platforms. This requires more effective(More)
As intelligent synthetic forces (ISFs) become more complex, the ability to develop and employ them becomes more costly, in part because their behavior is inscrutable to non-developer users. This paper summarizes research aimed at reducing the cost of developing ISFs by addressing the lack of transparency of ISF behavior. Our goal is to produce systems that(More)
A dessert matrix previously used for diagnosis of food allergies was incurred with pasteurised egg white or skimmed milk powder at 3, 6, 15 and 30 mg allergen protein per kg of dessert matrix and evaluated as a quality control material for allergen analysis in a multi-laboratory trial. Analysis was performed by immunoassay using five kits each for egg and(More)
The variety of communications employed by CGFs requires a flexible communications infrastructure that can be readily modified for new applications, new communication devices, and even user preferences. Understanding the variety of CGF communications has led us to redesign the communications infrastructure of TacAir-Soar, a real-time aircraft CGF. The design(More)
