As smartphones get smarter by pushing intelligence to the phone and computing cloud, they'll start to understand our life patterns, reason about our health and wellbeing, help us navigate our day, and intervene on our behalf. Here, the authors present various smartphone sensing systems that they've built, arguing that, eventually, these smartphones will evolve into cognitive phones.
