Instructor: K. Sedig

Course Description
This course explores the relationship between knowledge activities and cognitive technologies (CTs)—i.e., technologies that maintain information in a digital form and allow users to interact with this information. The nature of knowledge, its types and activities will be examined. Different cognitive technologies, their role in knowledge activities, their essential components, and their conceptualization and design will be studied. A nuanced understanding of the aforementioned issues will be developed to enable a systematic approach when analyzing, selecting, and assessing the utility and design of different CTs.
