ABOUT US

At Cognius.ai, we believe that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to co-exist and collaborate with human intelligence, offering a way to advance business operations to the next level by making AI adoption simple and intuitive.

As a company we specialize in Conversational AI technologies. Our next generation Conversational AI Platform is fundamentally different.

Currently the biggest challenge in Conversational AI is not about understanding natural language, but to generate responses that feel more natural and engaging, achieving this result in less training cycles. We pursue that challenge with a novel, promising approach that delivers a significant increase in productivity and an effective and engaging omni-channel user experience.

Here is the geographical coverage of Cognius.ai.

We are headquartered in Singapore.
