We build adaptive, multi-strategy artificial intelligence (AI) products and systems
“Cognistx has been a true partner

in helping us to identify and address our data quality issues. Their team has become an extension of the AmeriGas team and that has helped us to move in the direction of continuous data monitoring, remediation of issues, and automation through machine-learning.”

Tim Jordan | Amerigas Group Director, Supply Chain
“We’re empowering companies to take control over their information.

Working with Cognistx ensures we’re providing the best technology driving our cybersecurity products and staying ahead of cybercriminals who prey on businesses with weaknesses and gaps in their networks.”

Christian Torres | CEO and Co-Founder, Kriptos
“By using AI to assist our financial institution

in sifting through thousands of loan applications, we were able to save valuable time and focus on qualified loans. The team at Cognistx distilled the goals of the $25 million fund, offered insights that we had not considered and then created value added business rules that were critical to the speed and success of the program.

Michael Sellinger | Miami Bayside Foundation
“Long-term, this artificial intelligence program

will help aid all applications that impact small businesses and develop a playbook for the future making accessibility to loans more efficient. We were able to quickly put a program together that will be here not only during disasters but brighter days to support small businesses in Miami-Dade."

Sanjay Chopra | CoFounder, Cognistx

Our Mission and Story

Founded in 2015, Cognistx is a Pittsburgh-based applied AI company, building multistrategy AI systems for businesses 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 University School of Computer Science. Dr. Nyberg 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 1980s. As a member of the original IBM Watson development team, he helped develop a 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.
