A revolutionary learning and training environment harnessing artificial intelligence (AI) is being developed to transform how military trainees learn.
Obrizum, a Cambridge (UK) based specialist in advanced AI has signed a strategic partnership with BAE Systems, a leading provider of military training around the globe, to create a new tailorable Digital Learning Environment (DLE).
Together they will use Obrizum’s proprietary AI-powered adaptive learning technology to develop deeply tailored training experiences. The incorporation of Obrizum’s personalisation engines, high fidelity Extended Reality (XR) technology and its ultra-sensitive diagnostic analytics, promises significant improvements in efficiency, productivity, and risk identification.
This new DLE will also include innovative virtual assistant technology and an AI-powered digital content store, enabling defence organisations to adapt the capability according to their changing needs and continue to ensure trainees develop the skills they need to support the armed forces of tomorrow.
Obrizum Chief Executive Officer, Dr Chibeza Agley said, “We are delighted to be providing our unique AI-powered adaptive learning solutions to BAE Systems as it harnesses technology to deliver the highly-skilled people its customers need to ensure mission readiness.
“Obrizum brings a wealth of expertise in AI to analyse proprietary knowledge assets and transform them in to training environments which can adapt to a rapidly changing need.
“Combining our core technologies with BAE Systems’ pedigree in defence and integrating cross domain systems for the world’s leading military forces provides an exciting opportunity to deliver new digitally enabled training solutions that are high quality, effective and efficient.”
Lucy Walton, Head of Training for BAE Systems’ Air sector, said, “Every year BAE Systems trains more than 450 air crew including pilots, air traffic control and weapon system officers and over 6,000 technicians and ground crew for military forces across the world. This puts us in a unique position to understand the need to constantly evolve the training solutions we offer.
“Technology changes as quickly as the threat does and this allows us to be more innovative than ever before to meet the needs of the digitally native students of today and tomorrow.
“By harnessing technologies such as those delivered by Obrizum we can create the kind of immersive and engaging training environments our customers need and ensure training is a forethought, not an afterthought.”
