With the need to have more specialized individuals across a variety of fields and the requirement for a faster time to readiness, there is a need to personalize training and adapt strategies more efficiently. This requires a deep and well known way of adapting training to better suit the needs of the individuals. Adaptive training can be very impactful on training outcomes. But it can be very high cost in time and money!

Join us to hear about the game-based adaptive system this team developed to streamline and lower the cost of developing an adaptive training system.
