Intelligent approaches to performance support

By Philip Barker, Stephen Richards and Ashok Banerji


Electronic performance support systems provide an important method of meeting on‐demand educational and training requirements. They also provide efficient and effective ways of enabling the knowledge and expertise within an organization to be shared. This paper discusses the design of a distributed electronic performance support system and the ways in which ‘intelligent agents’ based on expert systems and neural networks can be used to locate and share distributed expertise. A case study illustrating our approach to the implementation and use of intelligent agents is presented
