CognitionX in the News

AI News Briefing

Our free newsletter reaches 11,000 people, from global leaders in AI research to CEOs to politicians. Not just that, it’s read by business executives, AI practitioners and activists – across a whole range of industries. Sign up to the daily or weekly briefing below to join them.

What We Do

Artificial intelligence could add £232bn to the UK economy by 2030. Although the opportunity AI presents is huge, it is complex, fragmented and moving at a relentless pace. In response, CognitionX’s community and platform aims to bring clarity. It does this through Workshops, a Community of AI thought leaders and a Premium Membership service, all powered by our fast-growing Knowledge Engine.

AI Orientation Workshops

Companies crave a way to truly understand AI and what opportunities exist for them. To meet this demand, we offer a programme of workshops – ranging from high-level orientation for board directors to basic introductions for larger teams. Our Workshops and Advisory Services provide practical use cases for AI, guidance around who to work with and insight into the regulatory and ethical risks. If you’d like to hear more, sign up here.


With over 11,000 members, CognitionX’s community of AI thought leaders is one of the largest in the world. We have hosted over 60 meetups in the last 18 months, attended by over 4,000 business leaders. Plus, our first annual AI conference, CogX, attracted 1,300 attendees in 2017. Next year, CogX 2018 is expected to be more than twice as big. Check out our Events home page to stay in the loop.

Premium Membership

Our research service is current, comprehensive and exclusively focused on AI. Across 19 different verticals, from Financial Services to HR, we provide in-depth monthly updates on your topic of choice. Not only this, we offer priority access to meet-ups, discounted tickets, and our CogX 2017 reports and videos. Premium Membership starts at £100 per month. Take a look at the membership options here.

Knowledge Engine

CognitionX’s insight is powered by our proprietary software platform. This tracks AI-related resources, technologies and people, including over 10,000 AI products. As a result, our analysts aren’t just equipped to give clients the best possible advice, they have the entire industry at their fingertips.
