While the concept of learning by demonstration has been around for many years, recent advances in artificial intelligence technology have led to a resurgence of work in the field. We describe the development and application of learning by demonstration technology to support user creation of automated procedures for a rich collaborative planning environment that is in widespread use by the U.S. Army. User feedback and evaluation results show that the technology can be used effectively by the target user community and that it has tremendous potential for improving the speed and quality of performance for a range of critical tasks.
