'Gabriel' is the name of a high-tech wearable cognitive assistance computing system that is capable of observing what a person is doing before prompting them in order to help them complete tasks in real time or complete them with more efficiency with the aim of producing better results.

Developed by a $2.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation, Gabriel is capable of working in conjunction with wearable systems such as Google Glass, giving it the ability to monitor what the user is doing. The system will be fitted with improved computer vision as well as audio and location sensing for extra interactivity.

This cognitive assistance computing system could be of use in a variety of settings to improve efficiency at work and to cover user's backs when they inevitably make human errors.
