Cognitive Capabilities in the Future Internet

In this chapter, an overview is given of the scientific and technological triggers leading to the emergence of cognitive infocommunications (CogInfoCom). Section 1.1 of the chapter begins with a brief introductory description of the motivations behind the field. This is followed by a discussion of how the field has emerged, first from the point of view of the scientific influences (Sect. 1.2), and later from the point of view of technologies (Sect. 1.3) contributing to it. The discussions provided by the chapter reveal that the evolution of all scientific fields is characterized by a process of maturation and ultimate convergence into newer fields of inquiry. In many cases such processes are supported by both conceptual and technological advances which bring to light possibilities for new theoretical approaches as well as previously unimagined application areas. It is demonstrated that the emergence of CogInfoCom can be attributed to a similar process.
