Cognitive Assistance is a new research agenda to assist everyday life by fully utilizing the smart machine technology - also known as "cognitive computers".
Cognitive computers are now starting to understand the surrounding world to make sense of the information it receives for people who are unable to see.
Additionally, those computers are starting to remember everything to fulfill the declining cognitive abilities of elderly people.
The advancement of computing technologies now touches the level of cognition, starting to substitute and expand their abilities. Carnegie Mellon University Cognitive Assistance Laboratory is established to lead the revolution, and become the center of ripple effects toward everybody in our society.
