Cognitive Science is the study of the mind and helps us to understand the processes involved in representing and retrieving knowledge and its implications. This interdisciplinary field combines ideas and methods from psychology, computer science, linguistics, philosophy, education and neuroscience. Research in cognitive science has a broad scope and application in the field of technology creation, development and implementation, education, health, and social behavior.
Most products/services address human needs. To create human friendly products, services and systems, engineers must learn to apply cognitive science in their discovery journey. An understanding will result in products with better utility, innovation and value.
The Center for Creative Cognition, a unique center in India, is dedicated towards redefining education and research in the field of applied Cognitive Science. The center aims at promoting the understanding of cognition and designing and developing human centered innovations.
