Abstract
This proposal is for development of the Diagnostic Engine for Cognitive Improvement and Decision Effectiveness (DECIDE). Our proposal meets the goals of the SBIR solicitation to optimize the cognitive performance diagnostics process and"establish approaches that extend existing debrief methods for cooperative systems to guide and support facilitator-led and metacognitive level self-assessment debriefs required for the cognitively dynamic and demanding environments."We will achieve this goal by developing a comprehensive software training tool, which interfaces with current existing simulators, to provide advanced scenario generation, pre-brief, and after action review capabilities. The DECIDE system will utilize Bayesian decision models to diagnose cognitive performance, machine learning techniques for model adaptation and refinement, and an intuitive user interface for instructor and trainee interaction and diagnosis. The focus of our Phase I effort will be on developing a prototype DECIDE system for Undersea Warfare (USW). To do this we will leverage our existing technologies in decision making and training to allow us to rapidly develop a prototype system within the present SBIR budget and time constraints. Finally, as part of our transition and commercialization plan, the prototype system will assist us in rapidly transitioning and distributing the DECIDE product.
