Abstract: In an increasingly diverse cross-cultural environment, individuals and organizations are constantly interacting with foreign cultures, which require perceptiveness and adaptability. Cultural intelligence appears as an emerging application in cross-cultural activities. Researches on this domain provide a new perspective and a promising means of intercultural conflicts and obstacles reduction. However, these researches rely mainly on questionnaires to find solutions to the cultural intelligence problems in cross-culture settings. Up until now, no research on cultural intelligence has been empirically computerized. The traditional computational techniques cannot treat cultural intelligence soft data to help individuals and organizations in solving intercultural problems. This research aims to create a new cultural intelligence model based on an innovative breed of AI technologies, and implemented in an expert system called CIES. The purpose of CIES is to support ordinary people when making culturally intelligent decisions and to improve their cultural skills when facing various authentic situations.
