Exploiting Artificial Intelligence To Enhance Training: A Short- and Medium-Term Perspective.
Cumming, Geoff
This paper is an introductory discussion of industrial training, artificial intelligence (AI), and AI applications in training, prepared in the context of the United Kingdom Training Commission (TC) program. Following an outline of the activities and aims of the program, individual sections describe perspectives on: (1) training needs, including examples in steelmaking and the health and safety field; (2) AI; and (3) AI applications for learning, including discussions of expert systems, simulations, Anderson's LISP tutor, learning environments, intelligent help, direct manipulation, adding a coach, and domain independence. Possible AI applications to training are then considered. Conclusions relevant to the TC program are drawn in several areas--demonstrators, overseas experience, promoting awareness, dangers of over-selling, and TC support for AI applications. Eleven annotated references are listed. (MES)
