Abstract:

The paper was presented as part of the Avionics Panel Program on Natural and Artificial Logic Processors, sponsored by the Advisory Group for Aeronautical Research and Development, NATO. Several conceptual propositions in regard to man and the computer are offered. The nature of training research is examined. There is also a brief categorization of human behavior to suggest some of the uses and some of the difficulties in the utilization of computers in training research. The role of the training research psychologist dealing with large groups of people in mass instruction in a military setting is discussed, as is the importance of the computer for data processing and as a tool for simulating complex behavior.
