Kai Kunze, Pattie Maes, Florian `Floyd' Mueller, and Katrin Wolf. Cognitive Augmentation (Dagstuhl Seminar 22491). In Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 12, Issue 12, pp. 1-26, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2023)


Mobile phones and other connected wearable systems transformed the way we interact with information, offering access to vast amounts of knowledge at our fingertips. However, the challenge remains on how to make this information more accessible and intuitive. The field of cognitive augmentation aims to enhance our cognitive abilities through technology, allowing us to interact with digital data more naturally and efficiently. This Dagstuhl Seminar brought together experts in neuroscience, psychology, physiology, wearable computing, human-computer interaction, machine perception, and pattern recognition to discuss the possibility of augmenting our cognitive skills and creating new digital senses. The seminar explored the latest findings in these fields and their potential for improving human performance, productivity, and creativity. Ultimately, the goal is to bridge the gap between humans and machines, enabling a more seamless and intuitive interaction between the two. The main discussion topic centered around the possibilities and challenges of digitally augmenting our cognition.
