About cognistx
our mission
Our mission is to build adaptive, multi-strategy artificial intelligence (AI) systems to solve today’s most challenging problems. We help people and technology be better, together.
our story
Founded in 2015, Cognistx is a Pittsburgh-based applied AI company, building multistrategy AI systems for clients across the U.S. We create AI-powered computer systems that can sense, learn, and act. Our founders are pioneers in the fields of automatic question-answering, speech processing, computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), and applied machine learning. We are able to efficiently combine and customize the best advanced technologies — our AI building blocks — to create applications that extract meaningful insights to produce measurable impact for our clients.

Pioneers in Artificial Intelligence

Our co-founder, Dr. Eric Nyberg, is a tenured Professor at Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science, and has worked on a broad range of AI applications — automatic language understanding, translation, and generation; advanced information retrieval and ranking; automatic question-answering systems — since the 1980’s. As a member of the original Watson development team, he helped IBM develop a generalized, scalable architecture for multi-strategy question answering systems, as well as specific techniques (e.g. statistical answer scoring, structured/semantic retrieval, statistical source expansion) used by Watson in the Jeopardy! Challenge.
At Cognistx, we take a similar approach to solving customer challenges — we design advanced, multi-strategy AI software systems that deliver optimal combinations of state-of-the-art technologies to achieve desired information system performance.
