Temporal Aspects of CogInfoCom Channel Design

In this chapter, a description of the scope and goals of CogInfoCom is provided. This is followed by an overview of novel concepts—such as those of mode and type of communication, as well as the more general notion of cognitive capability—which have emerged through the field. Further, a set of assumptions, primarily founded on the existence and consequences of the merging process between humans and ICT, are described in terms of their relevance to CogInfoCom research.
