Abstract:

This paper presents automated methods for facilitating after action review in team training exercises. Much of the learning from team training arises from frank after-the-fact discussions of the exercise, combining individual attributions of blame or credit into a more objective view of what transpired. These individual attributions are social judgments involving not only causality but also explanations of individual responsibility, free will and mitigating circumstances. Such judgments are a key aspect of social intelligence and underlie social planning, social learning, natural language pragmatics and computational models of emotion. Here we introduce a computational model of this judgment process based on psychological Attribution Theory and discuss its potential to facilitate after action review in team training.
