Abstract:

Data shaping in the Cultural Simulation Modeler was performed for the Integrated Behavioral Assessment Capability Phase I. The project leveraged IndaSeas Cultural Simulation ModelerTM application and the Rapid Human Assessment Information System browser-based interface developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, now known as the Universal Analyst Interface. lndaSea developed a Cultural Simulation Modeler Query Application Programming Interface, enabling connection to a database of 380,000 news articles on Indonesia. Essential Elements of Information relating to a selected scenario were structured in a template in the Universal Analyst Interface, and the template mirrored in the Cultural Simulation Modeler. Systems users logged in remotely, and sent selected template questions to the database. The Cultural Simulation Modeler indexes text and uses a Cultural Construct as a conceptual core to achieve culturally specific data shaping. Each question was expanded to form many queries in the Cultural Simulation Modeler, in order to adapt to cultural word usage as represented in the international news sources.
