  6. Competency-based Adaptive Training System

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: OSD11CR4

    In todays Air Force, developing and maintaining the needed knowledge and skills across the workforce is a big undertaking. And operational training is often linear, not personalizeda "one size fits all" training approach. While there is a recognition that learners possess differing experiences and educational preparation, an effective system to enable and support individualized training has not be ...

  9. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...
