‘SAIL3’ Demo at I/ITSEC 2018 Launch Pad
Aptima, Adobe, and MARi Partner to Disrupt Training with ‘SAIL3’ Demo at I/ITSEC 2018 Launch Pad
‘Adaptive Intelligent Life-Long Learning System’ born out of CNO Richardson’s challenge
The future of learning and Warfighter development will soon look quite different and that vision will be clear when Aptima and partners Adobe and MARi LLC demonstrate SAIL3 on Wednesday, November 28th at Launch Pad, the special event dedicated to innovative and disruptive technologies at I/ITSEC 2018. I/ITSEC is the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training event for government, industry, and academia.
SAIL3—the Sailor Adaptive Intelligent Life-Long Learning system—is an innovative proficiency and readiness system that uses advanced data analytics, human performance and learning sciences, and AI-based machine learning to provide Sailors with a “learning GPS” throughout their careers. Accessing SAIL3 at the point of need, on personal digital devices or through a Navy managed system, Sailors will be able to manage all aspects of their career, training, and compensation concerns—anytime/anywhere. At the same time, SAIL3 will provide leaders and commanders with a continuous assessment of personnel proficiency and mission readiness at the Navy enterprise level.
SAIL3 was born out of the challenge issued by Admiral John Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations at I/ITSEC 2016, who urged Government and industry to bring solutions to the Fleet faster specifically by forging partnerships and leveraging existing technologies to solve pressing Fleet issues. Aptima, Adobe, and MARi came together to completely disrupt the way that training is provided– moving from a one-size-fits-all approach, where training is validated through “completion,” to one that harnesses big data, machine learning, and adaptive algorithms to assess real-time proficiency and fill critical learning gaps.
With SAIL3 Sailors will see their current knowledge and skill levels, qualifications, rating, pay, leave, and assignments through a single user-friendly point of entry. Moreover, SAIL3 will help them forge a path to realize personal and professional goals through an AI-enabled “intelligent mentor.” This mentor will help Sailors set career goals; autonomously assess critical knowledge, training, and experience gaps; and access past ratings, assignments, and assessments to plan an optimized path to proficiency and career success.
“We recognize we must move swiftly to disrupt current training methods in order to better prepare our Warfighters and to remain ahead of our adversaries,” said Daniel Serfaty, Aptima’s CEO and Principal Founder. Serfaty’s I/ITSEC 2016 Industry Keynote galvanized the audience and encouraged the RDT&E community to seek and implement disruptive innovations in the fields of learning, simulation, and training to benefit the Warfighter.
SAIL3 is applicable across military training domains, addressing key issues that include, understanding what Warfighters are learning, quickly identifying skill and readiness gaps, filling them with anytime, anywhere point-of-need learning, and providing leaders with actionable information and analytics.
What: SAIL3 Demonstration
Where: I/ITSEC, Orlando Convention Center South Concourse, Booth 1086 https://exhibits.iitsec.org/2018/Public/Enter.aspx
When: Wednesday November 28, 4:00 PM (Session 3: Performance Measurement)
Who: Aptima, Adobe, and MARi will present the SAIL3 system
SAIL3 leverages research and these mature capabilities from the three partnering organizations:
- an “Experience Manager” (EM) platform that provides a scalable and secure enterprise learning environment and supports bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access;
- Adaptive Learning Management (ALM) and Machine Learning, built on advanced algorithms and multi-model measurement and assessment technologies; and
- an Advanced Analytics platform that aggregates learning and readiness data to personalize the Sailor’s learning experiences.
While the initial use case for SAIL3 is focused on the US Navy, it has broad applicability for all other branches of the Armed Services and other industries as the core technologies can be applied in almost any learning domain.
