Scientists and Software Engineers from Charles River Analytics presented papers at the 2005 Conference on Behavior Representation in Modeling and Simulation (BRIMS). The BRIMS Conference was hosted by Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO) and took place in Universal City, California, from May 16-19, 2005. The BRIMS Conference is an annual forum for the modeling and simulation community to exchange information on the application of cognitive science and engineering to enable enhanced behavior representation in simulation.
BRIMS is sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO), Army Research Laboratory (ARL), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
Pete Aykroyd and John Bachman presented a paper titled Modeling Individual Differences and Stressors Using the SAMPLE Cognitive Architecture to show how the effects of individual differences and environmental stressors can be represented within Charles River’s agent-based behavior modeling architecture known as SAMPLE.
Andrew Young presented the paper, TRACE: An Ontology-based Approach to Generic Traceability Tools for Human Behavior Models. In this paper, Young presents “a set of generic, ontology-based traceability tools and algorithms that support the human behavior model (HBM) developer/analyst in gaining insight into a given model’s reasoning and decision processes.”
Karen Harper, Vice President of Cognitive Systems and Principal Scientist, is leading both the MINDS and TRACE projects, which are representative of her ongoing efforts focused in the development of Human Behavior Representations (HBRs) modeling the human decision-making process in high-stress, time-critical situations.
