Abstract

There is a growing demand for new forms of intercultural training. We describe a demonstration of an agent-based application designed to teach young adults (18-25) general patterns of behaviour that can distinguish a broad range of cultures. Training is done through an interactive-story telling approach where the user must go through a series of critical incidents, interacting with agents capable of simulating different synthetic cultures in their behaviour.
