Abstract

Augmented cognition can transform human capabilities, but delivering its benefits in real-time will require low-latency wireless access to powerful infrastructure resources from lightweight wearable devices. Edge computing is the only viable approach to meeting these stringent requirements. In this paper, we explore the symbiotic relationship between augmented cognition and edge computing. We show how off-the-shelf wearable hardware, standard AI technologies such as computer vision, and edge computing can be combined to create a system that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Augmenting human cognition thus emerges as a prime example of a new class of edge-native applications that can become “killer apps” for edge computing.
