AbstractFor this SBIR project, Vcom3D and our partners at Soar Technology propose to develop a toolkit for rapidly creating Serious Games that train tactical application of cultural knowledge in authentic, experiential environments. This toolkit will extend the two Company’s platform independent Plug-and-Play Cultural Avatar (PnPCA) architecture by providing tools to rapidly create new scenarios that can incorporate emerging commercial and open source speech and gesture recognition technologies, speech generation, and ingestion of new cultural data. A key feature of the toolkit will be to make scenario authoring, performance monitoring, and performance remediation available to the actual users of the serious games. Critical components of the technology will be demonstrated on multiple platforms, including mobile, Web-based, and multi-user virtual world environments.
