Abstract:

Smart Technology represents the application of cognitive and computer science to Army training. A major component of this technology is intelligent tutors. The authors discuss differences between intelligent and conventional CAI and emphasize the current status of intelligent tutors. Also discussed is ARIs effort to produce Smart Technology for CAI developers. The authors contend that most conventional CAI is undersophisticated and that this problem can be corrected by producing Smart Technology aids for CAI developers. A project for the Army Engineer School, which is applying research on problem-solving to engineer training, is discussed.
