Research Institution
Access to experienced technicians is not always available to a maintainer at sea. Correcting naval electronic systems issues as they occur can leverage accumulated knowledge that resides in databases, detailed test plans, repair procedures, and other documents if available to ship-based maintainers. This effort is to develop an Interactive Instructor chatbot technology that is an interface between these knowledge bases and on-ship maintainers. This Phase II effort is a continuation of the Phase-I proof-of-concept system that utilizes natural language processing to parse input knowledge bases (e.g., technical manuals) and provides an interactive, voice-commanded navigation through the technical data. Phase II extends capabilities to include greater levels of input parsing, database of operator interactions for data capture and interaction analysis, improved dialogs between operator and Instructor, integration with a fault analysis system, and deployment planning for the Phase II experimental system. The Phase II options include full field experimentation of the system in a representative environment.
