Cognitive infocommunication channels
Cognitive infocommunication (CogInfoCom) channels are sets of sensory signals that provide users with feedback information in a structured and interpretable way. A group of sensory signals can be regarded as belonging to the same CogInfoCom channel if:
  • they give rise to orderable perceptual qualities
  • the perceptual qualities along which they can be ordered give rise to associations with a high-level concept (e.g., degree of roughness, degree of surprise, balance between income and expenses, etc.)
  • CogInfoCom channels can support a large variety of communication types, including sensor-bridging, representation-sharing and representation-bridging.
