Intelligent Cognitive Assistants

Collaborative Machines to Enhance Human Capabilities


Read Our Findings

The next evolution of the human-computer collaboration will soon become reality. The Intelligent Cognitive Assistant (ICA) initiative will accelerate the creation of systems that demonstrate the harnessing of machine intelligence to work collaboratively, enhancing human cognitive and physical capabilities. ICA will lead to the creation of new platforms to assist people in working, learning, interacting with new cyber-physical systems, redefine the human-computer interface, transport, health care, and other activities.

Humans face a daunting list of challenges every day, and the future ICA applications will lend a helpful digital hand. These new applications will be individually adaptable and developed to augment the human performance and productivity, establishing new fields such as Cognitive Artificial Intelligence (CAI) at the human-technology frontier.

SRC and NSF to Collaborate on Research Agenda

SRC and NSF worked together to hold a joint workshop in 2017 which lead to the creation of the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier (FW-HTF) program at NSF.  This joint effort builds on a 2017 workshop summarized in a publicly available Research Needs document. SRC is launching a parallel program in 2019.

ICA Themes

  • Contextual Knowledge
  • Holistic Artificial Intelligence
  • Social Science
  • Natural Human-ICA Interfacing
  • Localization and System Design
