Altice Labs represented at the Program Board of the "13th International Conference on Augmented Cognition"
06/05/2019 Augmented Cognition / Conference / HCI
Altice Labs has been invited to participate in the Program Board of the Augmented Cognition conference, part of an HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) mega-conference, to be held next July in Orlando, Florida, in the USA, which is attended by around 2000 participants.
Fausto Carvalho, from the Innovation and Technology Strategy department, was invited about a year ago to join the Program Board of the conference and has since contributed to the review and acceptance recommendation of submitted articles.
The Augmented Cognition conference is at its 13th edition and requests papers from academics, researchers, industry and practitioners on a wide range of theoretical and practical issues related to Augmented Cognition and its various applications.
The main goal in the field of Augmented Cognition is to research and develop technologies capable of increasing the capacity of information management of individuals through computer technologies. The research and development of Augmented Cognition are focused on accelerating the production of innovative concepts in the integration of the human system and includes the study of methods to deal with cognitive issues, such as limitations in concentration, memory, learning, comprehension, visualization capability and decision making, through technologies that assess the cognitive status of the user in real time.
A computational interaction employing these new system concepts monitors the user's state through behavioral, psychophysiological and/or neurophysiological data acquired by the user in real time, and then adapts or augments the computational interface to significantly improve its performance in the task in question.
