This Juice Bar topic will focus on the importance of modeling & simulation data to support lifelong learning across the Services and the 28 DoD Functional Communities. The ADL Initiative will discuss the current status of the Enterprise Digital Learning Modernization program and the resulting ledger of career-long learning data to support DoD-wide decision making for talent management, command & control, readiness reporting, and other areas that improve DoD operational outcomes. The U.S. Army DEVCOM will show how individual and team learning data are generated and reported within Synthetic Training Environments and how that data may be used to support decision-making at the local level.

Since 2017, Mr. Brent Smith has worked as the Chief Architect and R&D Principal for the ADL Initiative under the ADL SETA contract. In this role, Mr. Smith establishes interdependent chains of research that support ADL outcomes and objectives defined by the government leadership team. ADL is comprised of a cross-functional team of engineers, learning scientists, technical project managers, and researchers that work together to perform complex studies, quantitative analyses, and evaluations that support the stewardship of ADL’s Distributed Learning policy. More recently, ADL has been working to implement tools and technologies under the Enterprise Digital Learning Modernization (EDLM) Reform to enable a DoD-wide ecosystem of interoperable learner data and shared IT Services that reduce the total cost of ownership for learning technologies by enabling efficiencies across the lifecycle of learning. 

Dr. Benjamin Goldberg is a senior research scientist in the Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Environments (LITE) Lab at the Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Soldier Center, Simulation and Training TechnologyCenter (STTC) in Orlando, FL. He has been conducting research in modeling and simulation for the past eleven years with a focus on adaptive learning and how to leverage artificial intelligence for personalized computer-based instruction. Currently, he is the STTC's technical lead for training management tools research and development in support of the Army's Synthetic Training Environment modernization program. Dr. Goldberg holds a Ph.D. from the University of Central Florida in Modeling & Simulation.

Central Florida Tech Grove

The Central Florida Tech Grove is a hub for accelerating collaboration and innovation in defense modeling, simulation, training, and human performance.  Tech Grove is located in the Central Florida Research Park in Orlando, Florida which is the epicenter of the nation's largest cluster of government, industry, academic, and industry organizations developing and delivering training and simulation products for our nation's military. Tech Grove was established in 2020 through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) between the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) and the University of Central Florida Research Foundation.  Eight other Department of Defense entities are Tech Grove members: US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), US Air Force Agency for Modeling & Simulation (AFAMS), US Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), US Army Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC), US Army Futures Command Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team (STE CFT), Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), Defense Health Agency (DHA), and the Office of Naval Research through the NavalX Central Florida Tech Bridge.
