Cognition-Aware Computing

Andreas Bulling, Thorsten O. Zander

IEEE Pervasive Computing, 13(3), pp. 80-83, 2014.


Despite significant advances in context sensing and inference since its inception in the late 1990s, context-aware computing still doesn’t implement a holistic view of all covert aspects of the user state. Here, the authors introduce the concept of cognitive context as an extension to the current notion of context with a cognitive dimension. They argue that visual behavior and brain activity are two promising sensing modalities for assessing the cognitive context and thus the development of cognition-aware computing systems.
