In recent years, there has been a remarkable surge in the development of cutting-edge technologies aimed at enhancing individuals' perceptual and intellectual capabilities. These advancements encompass a wide array of innovations, such as bolstering memory retention and focus, introducing novel sensory modalities for perceiving magnetic north, and refining aesthetic and moral sensitivities. The ultimate ambition of this research is to establish a universally applicable framework for sense enhancement by cognitive technologies. As the first wave of cognitive enhancement technologies becomes accessible to end-users, critically examining their impact on cognitive skills is imperative. This seminar serves as a platform to delve into the intricacies of this subject and establish robust assessment measurements to evaluate the efficacy of cognitive enhancement technologies systematically. This seminar aims to refine our understanding of cognitive enhancement technologies and determine their true potential in advancing human cognition. Throughout this seminar, lively discussions and insightful contributions from each of you are encouraged since you play a pivotal role in shaping the future of cognitive technologies. Let's evaluate cognitive enhancement technologies and pave the way toward a more profound comprehension of cognitive enhancement through technology.
