The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity is soliciting information to develop a first-person cultural simulation tool, according to a post on the FedBizzOpps website.

The request for information aims to explore intercultural awareness and understanding through the use of new technologies such as emic analysis.

Emic analysis allows an individual to experience a situation from a native’s point of view to facilitate deeper insight of other people’s cultural behaviors.

In addition, the government wants to look into advanced technologies that would potentially help develop new tools for the emic capability including computing, data collection and visualization, graphic user interfaces, behavioral sciences and cultural psychology.

IARPA will accept responses until June 11, 2012 at 4:00PM EST via electronic submission on the agency’s website.
