Abstract:

The U.S. Army has recognized the need to transition the research on authorable tutoring systems and language learning, both funded by themselves and others, out of the research laboratory and into more applied settings. The objective of this project was to initiate a program of research to design a computerized tutor that is capable of teaching military personnel mission relevant information and task performance through naturalistic dialog between student and tutor. The overall objective of this project was to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a general purpose, authorable, dialog based tutor. The central tasks were 1 the design of an artificially intelligent authorable dialog system, 2 design of a lexical semantic authoring system, and 3 prototype development of an English natural language processing NLP system. Integration issues and data exchange methods for passing information between each of these central components were also designed.
