Assistive Technology Design for Intelligence Augmentation presents a series
of frameworks, perspectives, and design guidelines drawn from disciplines
spanning urban design, artificial intelligence, sociology, and new forms of
collaborative work, as well as the author's experience in designing systems
for people with cognitive disabilities. Many of the topics explored came
from the author's graduate studies at the Center for LifeLong Learning and
Design, part of the Department of Computer Science and the Institute of
Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The members of the
Center for LifeLong Learning and Design came from a wide range of design
perspectives including computer science, molecular biology, journalism,
architecture, assistive technology (AT), urban design, sociology, and

The main emphasis of this book is to provide leverage for understanding the
problems that the AT designer faces rather than facilitating the design
process itself. Looking at the designer's task with these lenses often
changes the nature of the problem to be solved.  The main body of this book
consists of a series of short chapters describing a particular approach, its
applicability and relevance to design for intelligence augmentation in
complex computationally supported systems, and examples in research and the
marketplace. The final part of the book consists of listing source documents
for each of the topics and a reading list for further exploration.

This book provides an introduction to perspectives and frameworks that are
not commonly taught in presentations of AT design which may also provide
valuable design insights to general human-computer interaction and
computer-supported cooperative work researchers and practitioners.
