In this chapter I describe the dynamic intersection of cognition and technology as it has emerged through the development of cognitive engineering research. This discipline has matured over the past several decades into an interdisciplinary approach, melding concepts and methods from cognitive psychology, computer science, and engineering with a holistic approach to understanding human-technology integration. I show how cognitive engineering has contributed to both a fundamental and practical understanding of human performance embedded in context, and I offer suggestions for developments in the field that may provide a more cohesive and unified approach to understanding and expanding human-systems integration.

Keywords: cognitive engineering; human-system interaction; cognitive technology; problem solving; decision making; human performance
