Cognetics: a new field to study, restore and enhance human cognitive performance and consciousness

The self is grounded in the multisensory processing of bodily inputs, and highlight the great importance of the sense of touch. Bodily perception can be altered in different patient populations and transformative technologies be used to investigate, treat and restore such perceptions, bringing the body into digital restoring experiences.

Swarm Robotics

Swarm robotics is a technology to coordinate a large number of simple robots like insects, ants and other animals where swarm behaviour occurs. Such technologies are already applied in IoT, smart mobility, smart grids, Industry 4.0 and smart houses. Swarms of cyber-physical systems increase dynamics, connectivity, and complexity - calling for features like adaptability, scalability, robustness, and self-configuration - features that can be provided with nature-inspired swarm intelligence.
