Welcome to COSSAC

Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration in Cognitive Science & Systems Engineering

COSSAC is a collaboration between three groups at the Universities of Oxford and Edinburgh and UCL. COSSAC's agenda is to research the nature of high level cognition and apply this understanding to building and deploying medical applications. We also plan to demonstrate the power of our approach to cognitive systems in non-medical domains, and to develop a sound engineering framework for exploiting cognitive science and systems more widely.


"Cognitive systems are natural or artificial information processing systems, including those responsible for perception, learning, reasoning, decision-making, communication and action." [foresight.gov.uk]
