Embodiments of this invention comprise modeling a subjects state and the influence of training treatments, or actions, on that state to create a training policy. Both state and effects of actions are modeled as probabilistic using Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (POMDP) techniques. Utilizing this model and the resulting training policy with subjects creates an effective decision aid for instructors to improve learning relative to a traditional scenario selection strategy.

Example embodiments of systems and methods for network pattern matching provide the ability to match hidden networks from noisy data sources using probabilistic multi-attribute graph matching analysis. The algorithms may map roles and patterns to observed entities. The outcome is a set of plausible network models. The pattern-matching methodology of these systems and methods may enable the solution of three challenges associated with social network analysis, namely network size and complexity, uncertain and incomplete data, and dynamic network structure.

Processor based systems and methods of defining a scenario event comprising the steps of identifying an event having an event attribute and generalizing the event attribute to define a generalized event whereby the generalized event is the scenario event. In some embodiments, the steps further comprise identifying a first and second event, generalizing a first and second event attribute to define a first and second generalized event and connecting the first and second generalized event in a continuous envelope to create a scenario envelope. Also disclosed are processor based systems and methods of monitoring an activity comprising the steps of monitoring an activity having an activity attribute and comparing the activity attribute to an event envelope to determine a status of the activity relative to the event envelope.

Systems and methods to provide a training solution for a trainee are disclosed. In some embodiments the method comprises receiving a training requirement comprising a training outcome and a training configuration wherein the training configuration defines a trainee state, determining a training environment based on a relevancy function of the training environment to the training outcome, determining a training content based on a relationship function of the training content to the trainee state and determining a training solution comprising the training environment and the training content. In some embodiments, the relationship function comprises a POMDP model and the relevancy function comprises a best fit curve.

A processor based system and method of generating cognitive pattern knowledge of a sensory input is disclosed. The method comprising the steps of receiving sensory input to create at least one concrete pattern, receiving at least one abstract pattern comprising abstract segments and vertically blending the concrete pattern with the abstract pattern by selectively projecting abstract segments to create a vertically blended pattern whereby the vertically blended pattern represents cognitive pattern knowledge of the sensory input. In some embodiments, the systems and methods further comprise creating a measure of a degree of vertical blending and when the measure of the degree of vertical blending exceeds a threshold, horizontally blending at least two abstract patterns to create a horizontally blended abstract pattern.
