CognitionX’s mission is to bring clarity to, and accelerate adoption of, AI across all organisations from global enterprises to startups, and help ensure a safe and responsible transition to an AI-driven society.

Knowledge Network

The Enterprise edition of our Knowledge Network enables large firms to capitalise on internal expertise and access a global network of experts.

‘If we only knew what we knew, we would be three times more productive’. This sentiment, expressed 30 years ago by Hewlett-Packard CEO Lew Platt, remains true for many large organisations today. CognitionX’s Advice Platform addresses this challenge by matching questions to both internal and external experts in a simple, fast and cost-effective way.

The free, public version of the CognitionX platform contains a wiki of thousands of AI products, services and case studies. Our Expert Network enables users to to immediately access a global network of AI experts, on-demand. Sign up. Ask a question. Become an expert.

Along with our daily and weekly All Things AI briefings, we publish weekly newsletters on the intersection between AI and HR, Ethics, Marketing, Chatbots and Climate Change. Sign up here.
