How narrow is cognitive science?

Am I doing cognitive science?  Is AI cognitive science? Jim Davies discusses the scope of cognitive science in his paper: The role of artificial intelligence research methods in cognitive science (recent iccm conference).  To my way of thinking cognitive science need not be restricted to the kinds of cognition that occur in animals.  There may well be kinds of cognition that occur in machines but which never happen in animals. You're still studying cognition.
