In 2011, Semantic Interfaces was awarded a grant from the Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) foundation.
The grant was awarded for a joint project with Medstar Health Simulation Training and Education Lab (SiTEL). In the project, we developed
a natural language voice interface to SiTEL’s trauma training simulation. The use of speech rather than keyboard, mouse, or game controller,
made the training experience considerably more realistic. Thanks to SITA engine, the trainee can communicate freely with the staff avatars
in the simulated trauma room. SITA translate the voice input into an agreed set of commands and arguments (for example: blood infusion command,
blood quantity, and blood type) that the simulation software executes.
The trauma simulation is implemented in Unity platform, which calls a SITA server.
