Abstract
The goals of this Phase I program will be to investigate the issues associated with the development of a cognitive reasoning system that allows the rapid development and modification of NBC-related medical training scenarios and computer-based simulationssupport for NBC threat assessments, predictive analysis, and decision-making in both training and operational environments. The heart of the teams approach is the use of an advanced conceptual modeling approach for development of human reasoning softwarecalled a Bounded Neural Network (BNN). This specialized intelligent agent architecture and its associated research-level toolset/editor, called CORE, were created by Bevilacqua Research Corporation (BRC), as a quick and efficient way to add complexcognitive processing capabilities to software systems. The team proposes to use Conceptual Graphs as the storage mechanism for the scenario knowledge necessary to create a reasoning and learning environment for medical personnel. The team will definerequirements, research issues and prepare a demonstration in Phase I that can be used as the basis of a go-ahead decision for Phase II.
