Some Institutes that Study Cognitive Systems

The Cognitive Systems Institute is a virtual institute to support global university, government, industry, and foundation collaborations in the area of next generation cognitive systems.   The vision is to augment and scale human expertise with cognitive assistants for all occupations in smart service systems.

A key question: How have researchers gone about augmenting themselves and their teams with powerful tools?

Moving up the abstraction tree one level beyond “custom analytics tools” to “general purpose cognitive assistants” for all occupations.  The vision is to augment and scale human expertise with cognitive assistants for all occupations in smart service systems, where all occupations is a moving target and O*NET OnLine is a first approximation of nearly a thousand occupations, many with task breakdowns, such as biochemical engineers. I have a short presentation to explain this a bit.  Cognitive assistants that have ingested all the literature in a field, and know the publications, talks, etc. of a person or team can be very useful for creativity and productivity boosts.  What architecture will allow industry and academia to collaborate and take on this grand challenge? How can we make rigorous and systematic the path to building and improving these systems, so that government, foundations, and industry can allocate more investment in these areas?
