Research in Augmented Social Cognition is aimed at enhancing the ability of a group of people to remember, think, and reason; to augment their speed and capacity to acquire, produce, communicate, and use knowledge; and to advance collective and individual intelligence in socially mediated information environments. In this paper, the authors describe the emergence of this research endeavor, and summarize some results from the research. In particular, they have found that analyses of conflicts and coordination in Wikipedia have shown one the scientific need to understand social sensemaking environments; and information theoretic analyses of social tagging behavior in del.icio.us shows the need to understand human vocabulary systems.
