SIKE: What tasks do learning systems help solve?
Mikhail Yuryevich: ─ I think it's easier to tell by the example of a particular profession. Let's take the profession of a repairman. Even though this profession may seem technologically simple, the training of repairmen can take up to six months.
In order for the training in the profession to be as effective as possible, we split the training into several components. We have training in groups, where the teacher tells the basic theory of the profession. There is training using electronic simulators so that, without getting close to real equipment, and without picking up real tools, people can work out the sequence of actions and memorize safety rules. And there is training in real skills, on real equipment, in production.
Our task, with the help of simulators, is to make sure that by the time a person gets to real production, he or she already has the basic theory and practice of the profession.
