Neurophilosophy: Augmented Cognition

Posted 10 Jan 2007 at 17:39 UTC by steve Share This

The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies has published an article by Moheb Costandi titled, "Augmented Cognition: Science fact or science fiction?" The article distinguishes between brain-computer interfaces and augmented cognition: "Whereas brain-computer interfaces enable people to control various aspects of their environment, the goal of augmented cognition is to determine peoples’ cognitive state in order to enhance it." The rest of the article focuses on attention and memory as two specific areas of cognition where current research into augmentation is being done by DARPA and other organizations. The article ends with a short DARPA video on the future of augmented cognition by Alexander Singer, who worked on Star Trek and other television shows.
