Introduction
--------------------------------------------------------------
Cognitive Assistants (CA) are a relatively new concept, advancing the Cognitive Orthotics concept that is only focused on direct assistance, to people with cognitive or physical disabilities, and expanding the area to include complex platforms that include sensors, actuators, monitoring abilities and decision processes. CA is an area containing technologies such as cognitive assistants, multi-agent systems, robotics and applications (such as e-health and e-learning), among others. Essentially, CA is focused on people and their disabilities, providing tools that best fit them using personalization methods. CA can range from a medication reminder to a messaging system that connects its users with their relatives. New developments like the IOT (Internet of Things) and the increasing amount of computing power in handheld devices have allowed the development of environments that were until now unavailable through embedded systems. Therefore, there are a lot of implementation options open for development on this area.
With this IJHCS special issue on Cognitive Assistants we intend to provide an overview of the research being carried out in the interdisciplinary area of cognitive assistants and cognitively inspired systems. To this end, we invite novel, high quality contributions that demonstrate a user-centered focus, and preferably (but not necessarily) present an engineering element in this area.
