Additional presentations by leading researchers and innovative suppliers addressed social learning, international technology standards for training, and solutions for emerging issues facing the aviation community. Aeroflot demonstrated live users of Second Life interacting with each other and natural language processing chat bots to refine radio communications and ICAO English for pilots. Many AICC presentations like this have direct applications in the larger Learning, Education and Training (LET) community.
