An Expert Instructor for an Intelligent Simulation Training System in the Air Traffic Control Domain
Scenario generation and domain specific instruction are the subjects of much research in today's computer world. Complex tasks are now being taught on systems that combine the technologies of artificial intelligence and simulation. These systems should allow for automatic scenario generation and provide a methodology for teaching domain specific knowledge. This can be achieved by incorporating the expertise of an Instructor in the system. The goal is to eliminate the need for a human instructor to prepare and supervise each session. The objective of this research was to develop an Expert Instructor module for an intelligent simulation-based tutoring system. It provides the material to be taught and the manner of teaching it. It contains "lesson plans" that are used in generating scenarios for each session. The current version is incorporated within the Intelligent Simulation Training System (ISTS). It consists of a generic part and a domain specific part. The latter was designed for the training of air traffic controllers. The ISTS is a modular system which is generic except for the simulation, the knowledge base, and the Expert Instructor. The latest version also provides the necessary functions for other modules to remain generic.
