Cognitive Cloud has drawn increasing attention from practitioners,
academics, and funding agencies and has been adopted progressively.
However, the concept remains mired in various definitions with
different studies providing contrasting descriptions. Therefore, to understand
the concept of cognitive cloud and to provide its definition, in this
work we conduct a systematic mapping study of the literature investigating
24 papers proposing five main definitions. The main outcome of this
work is a complete definition that merges all the common aspects of cognitive
cloud, enabling practitioners and researchers to better understand
what cognitive cloud is.
