Modeling Populations of Interest in Order to Simulate Cultural Response to Influence Activities

Conference paper

This paper describes an effort by Sandia National Laboratories to model and simulate populations of specific countries of interest as well as the population’s primary influencers, such as government and military leaders. To accomplish this, high definition cognition models are being coupled with an aggregate model of a population to produce a prototype, dynamic cultural representation of a specific country of interest. The objective is to develop a systems-level, intrinsic security capability that will allow analysts to better assess the potential actions, counteractions, and influence of powerful individuals within a country of interest before, during, and after an US initiated event.
