Creative Technologies Inc., announced it has teamed with Utopia Compression on a research project in support of the Office of Naval Research. The Phase II SBIR project, called NEUMET-CO is a neuroimaging-based system of cognitive models that will be used as a novel intelligent tutoring tool in a training application. The model will predict decision-making capabilities of warfighters. CTI is developing the training test bed, including the instructional design, application design, and proof of concept.
In its operation, NEUMET-CO will consider factors that are influenced by the soldier?s social-cultural environment (such as rational thinking, volition, personality traits, risk-taking ability, etc.). NUEMET-CO will assist the military by performing higher-order interactions amongst various neural substrates to help identify soldiers who might need additional training to enhance their cognitive ability allowing them to make rapid decisions without exhausting these higher-order interactions.
