Towards Interactive Cognitive Agents with Culturally Restricted Behaviors

Luis-Felipe Rodríguez, Luis A. Castro, Omar Gonzalez-Padilla

Abstract

Culture is one of the most important factors that influence human interaction. Evidence shows that people’s culture determines the type of actions they are able to perform in certain situations. Consequently, in the field of HCI, the study of culture has become essential for the design of interactive cognitive agents embedded in social and realistic virtual environments. However, current attempts to enculturate such agents focus on modeling specific aspects of culture, leaving aside the implementation of more integrative and biologically inspired models. In this paper, we propose an integrative framework as a novel approach to the modeling of culture in cognitive agents for HCI applications. This integrative framework is designed to serve as the underlying architecture of interactive cognitive agents whose behavior is influenced by specific cultural backgrounds. The architectural design and operations of such integrative framework is based theories and models formulated in psychology and neuroscience.
