Augmented human (AH) refers to a research direction of enhancing or augmenting human abilities by human-computer-integration. At its core, AH attempts to monitor and interpret domains of knowledge about human nature to actuate appropriate augmentation. We envision AH as a human-centered approach and a major milestone to be accomplished for ubiquitous virtual reality (i.e., combining the real human with assets of virtual environments). As a concrete example of augmenting human with intellectual abilities, we present a conceptual framework for augmented smart coach. In the proposed framework, multi-dimensional life experiences of human, are systematically captured, assessed, refined, encoded, and quantified into basis patterns of digital holistic self (D-Personality). By doing so, quantified holistic self serves a purpose of a dynamic user profile, which is exploited and explored by anthropomorphic and adaptive augmented interfaces for coaching the needs of individual. We highlight and identify foreseeable technical challenges for future research direction revolving around the presented framework.
