The ensemble application of intention awareness and sentic computing techniques is hereby examined for sensemaking in joint-cognitive systems, particularly in symbiotic systems that incorporate human and associate systems. The developed framework, in particular, exploits not only situational information of the operating environment, but also causal and temporal dimensions, together with circumstantial semantics and sentics, that is, the conceptual and affective information associated with objects and actors of such an environment. The work also highlights the effects of synchronized sensemaking processes in enabling associate systems to recognize the state of human activity. Studying the phenomenon of sensemaking, in fact, has direct implications for the development of more tightly coupled <human reasoner-associate system> pairs. Specifically, the military doctrine is examined as a family of relevant case studies to demonstrate the role and potential applications of such joint cognitive systems. © 2013 IEEE.
