Cognitive software captures experts' performance on flight simulators

Navy pilots and other flight specialists soon will have a new "smart machine" installed in training simulators that learns from expert instructors to more efficiently train their students. Sandia National Laboratories' Automated Expert Modeling & Student Evaluation (AEMASE, pronounced "amaze") is being provided to the Navy as a component of flight simulators. Melissa Walwanis, a senior research psychologist at the Naval Air Warfare Center's Training System Division in Orlando, Fla., said AEMASE will give Navy trainees specific ways to improve performance through machine learning, automated performance measurement, and recordings of trainees' voices during the training sessions. AEMASE places those flagged events on a timeline display, so instructors and students can review errors in recordings of student performance.
