The 2022 Tech Grove Connect Webinar series kicks off 2022 on Feb. 10 with You’re Not Paying Attention. And Yes I Can Tell. This webinar will discuss how it’s very difficult to detect and measure how engaged a participant is in a training scenario of any type. Yet the effectiveness of the training depends on the participant being fully engaged.

With the accelerating adoption of VR and AR headsets, it has become even harder — some say impossible — to tell if a participant is distracted and not paying attention, adding yet another barrier to the more rapid adoption of VR/AR solutions.

Join this webinar to hear how the team behind the I/ITSEC 2021 Best Paper Winner – Eduworks Corporation, Air Force Research Laboratory, and University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies – teamed to develop a machine learning solution starting with the Pilot Training Transformation (PTT) environment. Discussions will focus on how they worked together, the initial results, what they learned, and what they are doing to continue developing a deploying solution.

This webinar is highlighting the I/ITSEC 2021 Best Paper Winner from the Training Category, “Attention and Engagement in Virtual Environments: Measuring the Unobservable.”
