Special Issue on Internet of Digital and Cognitive Reality: Applications and Key Challenges
The recent co-evolution of human society and technology has led to a new digital era, represented by a variety of technologies including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Digital Twins, Artificial Intelligence, 5G networks, besides the "classical" Web 2.0. As these technologies begin to merge together via unified applications and digital environments characterized by the disappearance of the borders between the physical / natural and the digital, as well as between representation and simulation. This leads to highly contextual and dynamic entanglement with humans, hence, a qualitatively new kind of reality can be expected to emerge. This reality, referred to as Digital Reality is characterized by the blended combination of artificial and natural cognitive systems to cover the specific requirements of the environment. Thus, the Digital & Cognitive Reality emphasizes the goal-oriented unification of the physical and digital realms as a context-driven whole. At the same time, the networked transmission and sharing of physicaldigital contexts can be expected to become a key area of interest, leading to the notion of Internet of Digital & Cognitve Reality.
