Cognitive Science of Augmented Intelligence
Cognitive science has been traditionally organized around the individual as the basic unit of cognition. Despite developments in areas such as communication, human–machine interaction, group behavior, and community organization, the individual-centric approach heavily dominates both cognitive research and its application.
A promising direction for cognitive science is the study of augmented intelligence, or the way social and technological systems interact with and extend individual cognition.
The cognitive science of augmented intelligence holds promise in helping society tackle major real-world challenges that can only be discovered and solved by teams made of individuals and machines with complementary skills who can productively collaborate with each other.
