Mobility can play a significant role in accelerating training solutions to federal agencies, according to Munjeet Singh, vice president of Strategic Innovation Group-Cloud Services Architecture at Booz Allen Hamilton. Singh recently spoke with Greg Otto, managing editor at Cyberscoop, about the emerging digital transformation solutions, in the latest Accelerating Innovation in Government series video.
One of the considerable training challenges for the federal government, Singh noted, is developing consistent experiences for multiple domains — across institutional, operational and self-development training. Singh highlights that there’s an opportunity to turn 500-page manuals, for example, into high-end live virtual constructive (LVC) simulations. Powered by mobile, such as the Samsung Gear VR, immersive training can build muscle memory and reinforce learning so it becomes more instinctive.
Singh also notes that mobile can help reduce the time it takes to create a new training scenario. Today, it’s not unheard of for it to take 12-18 months to create simulation content. Mobile presents efficiency and optimization advantages that help shorten the development window and bring real-time training to the point of need faster.
More future-looking, Singh noted that Booz Allen Hamilton is evaluating how to use machine intelligence capabilities to prevent users from “gaming” the simulations, much like kids who learn the shortcuts in video games. These emerging capabilities will learn user behavior and dynamically change the content to throw curveballs at users.
