About Cogisen.

We believe today’s state-of-the-art AI has reached its limits, primarily because it cannot recognise and interpret information when there is a lack of data.  We are applying the collective knowledge of neuroscience, physics, mathematics and computer science to develop unique algorithms which help AI and machine learning applications to extract context and temporal information from content.

Who we are.

We are a team of mathematicians, physicists, neuroscientists and computer scientists designing and developing algorithms that will break through the limitations of today’s state-of-the-art artificial intelligence and machine learning. Already attracting significant attention in Silicon Valley our technology is being evaluated in fields as varied as mobile and social applications, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, detecting violence in video and identifying anomalies in streams of digital information for predictive cybersecurity.

Company culture.

We are fearless, defying accepted logic, to solve some of the most complex, outstanding challenges in artificial intelligence and machine learning.  We are always learning, because it is only by sharing knowledge and learning from each other that we can ignore convention and disrupt the fundamental principles of artificial intelligence. We are obsessed with delivery, not just abstract theory.  We believe in building technology that will provide meaningful benefits for society and business.

 

 

Careers.

If you would like to join a high performing, successful team where everyone feels their voice is heard and their contribution is valued we are recruiting now and would love to hear from you.
