DoD has a new solicitation on “Utilizing Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Medical Training Needs (MACH Learning) Award” by Department of Defense Defense Health Program Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs Defense Medical Research and Development Program Joint Program Committee-1 (JPC-1) – Medical Simulation and Information Sciences Research Program (MSIS).
Pre-Application: February 3, 2017
Extramural Application: May 12, 2017
The goals of this program are to (from the call)
- Seeks to support research to determine, define, and validate predictive machine learning modeling systems that predict early stages of training needs in order to eliminate the current culture of just-in-time training or not being able to offer refresher training in an efficient manner.
- Seeks metrics/evaluation criteria, the definition of those metrics/evaluation criteria, and specific measuring tools to obtain (collect) and potentially analyze the metrics/evaluation criteria needed to develop a sufficient algorithm for use in the prediction of training needs, both in the skill acquisition phase and in refresher training.
