Newest Cogito Labs in Silicon Valley and Washington, DC to Focus on Expanding the Capabilities of Cognitive Computing, Helping Organizations and Society Effectively Make Better Use of Big Data and Human Knowledge
– Expert System, the leader in multilingual cognitive computing technology for the effective management and exploitation of unstructured information, today announced that it has expanded its footprint in the United States with the addition of two new research and development labs, located in the Washington, DC and Silicon Valley areas.
Expert System has developed the Cogito Labs system as a strategic and effective way to ensure close cooperation between engineers and developers on one side, and linguistic professionals, faculty, researchers and specialists on the other. The new US-based labs (that join Expert System’s successful family of existing Cogito Labs in Modena, Rovereto and Naples, Italy; Grenoble, France; and Madrid, Spain) will look to develop innovative technology and approaches based on the core Cogito technology.
Marco Varone, CTO of Expert System states, “No one knows exactly how human comprehension really works, but we have made encouraging progress in programming computers to understand language. Exaggerated claims and hype have created false hopes and far too many promises about the things that artificial intelligence could do that it really cannot. Our newest Cogito Lab will be dedicated to further expanding the core functionalities of our technology and take new steps towards bringing to market software that really reads like humans and learns from humans. Additionally, we will have a related effort in developing tools that make this power available to almost anyone.”
Expert System’s Cogito enables human comprehension and insight at scale. More than just a software, it is an accessible and easily manageable asset that enables organizations to understand, distill and distinguish what is important in real time, and empowers them to take control of their decision-making processes.
In 2016, the enhancement of Cogito and its tools for creating linguistic-semantic rules will be accompanied by new software releases and new products, with a focus on the Intelligence sector, as well as the Banking and Insurance, Publishing and Pharmaceutical industries. Cogito Labs will focus its operations on the combination of innovation and market requirements, and will work to develop cutting-edge, effective applications that align with the needs of its customers.
