Automating real-time feedback in virtual reality training through data mining

Project description

This project will develop an automated, real-time feedback system for virtual reality (VR) training that harnesses data mining techniques. Based on electronic measures of trainees’ behaviour in VR environments previously established by the research team, we will develop sophisticated predictive models of expert and novice behavior. Using these models the feedback system will deliver nuanced feedback to trainees during a task, replicating the advice typically provided by an instructor. This system will lead to greater uptake and increased efficiency in training across industries reliant upon VR simulation, such as aviation, aerospace, mining, health and emergency services.
