Would you like to be a part of an innovative venture-backed startup that is pioneering the next frontier in human communication? Cognixion is building a revolutionary sensory communication platform with an audacious goal of being able to communicate with anyone around the world via a direct brain computer interface and other nonverbal inputs. Specifically, translating brainwave patterns into digital controls that can be utilized to give people with severe disabilities greater access to communication, giving professionals access to data that helps them make better choices, and new more natural user interfaces for communicating with others. We’re unlocking human potential by working at the intersection of artificial intelligence (A.I.), augmented reality (AR) and neurotechnology and are developing a platform of accessible solutions that accelerate communication access for those who need it most.
