Our hardware-agnostic software pushes the boundaries of machine learning to fully unlock the power of next-gen brain-computer interfaces

Harnessing Artificial Intelligence

Cogitat uses AI to read brain waves and convert them into digital commands. Our aim is to be the leading machine-learning driven, electroencephalogram (“EEG”) decoding software company. With EEG software inadequate for the wearable revolution, we provide a viable solution to reliably convert thoughts into actions via device and subject agnostic technology.

The future of Virtual Reality

By creating a unique connection between mind, body and machine, Cogitat empowers inclusive Virtual Reality applications. Our software technology enables all users - including those with physical impairments - to actively participate in the upcoming, immersive metaverse.

The new era of wearable devices

Our plug-and-play software allows scalability in the new era of wearable devices, combining world-leading machine learning with world-leading neuro-informatics. We are taking EEG decoding out of the lab and bringing it into people’s homes.

Converting brainwaves into digital commands

Deep Tech

We create core IP with cutting-edge AI/ML-empowered brainwave decoders trained on real-life EEG data

Life-changing Interfaces

We develop device-agnostic technology that can interface with any EEG headset and sensor configuration, including devices that haven’t even hit the market!

Robustness to real-world problems

We equip our brainwave decoders with ground-breaking robustness to real-world EEG signal quality problems, such as poor skin-sensor contact or even sensor hardware failures.

Plug and play Interaction

We build person-independent brainwave decoders, ready to operate on new users and boost plug-and-play brain-computer interaction without the need for long calibration sessions.
