We’re so pleased to have had such a stellar cohort of winners and finalists at the inaugural ceremony this year and feel honoured that we were able to bring together these pioneers in Artificial Intelligence, who are playing a vital role in shaping our future.”

The awards took place at CogX London 2017 - an Innovation Exchange focused on the impact that AI will have across all industries, government and society as a whole. The event, which ran in London from 20th-21st June, explored how we should navigate the new and complex landscape rapidly reshaping the world around us and attracted over 1,500 attendees. CogX was hosted in association with the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute of data science.





Kwiziq is an “AI language coach”, a state-of-the-art tool designed for the post beginner. It combines artificial intelligence with scientifically proven methods to dramatically accelerate the language learning process. Robot tutor Kwizbot, uses “brainmaps”, a unique tool that builds out maps of users’ knowledge through adaptive quizzes, personalising and therefore accelerating learning. A recent student survey reported learning speed improvements upto x10.


CognitionX brings clarity to the complex and fast-paced world of Artificial Intelligence. Their mission is to democratise access to the information and research on the products and resources required to build AI solutions. By organising all the information from the industry and making it universally accessible and useful they empower everyone from enterprise to startups and governments – even individuals – to access and rapidly deploy AI.


The Alan Turing Institute is the national institute for data science, with headquarters at the British Library. The group will work in collaboration with the broader data science community to undertake research and understanding the societal implications of Big Data.

The Institute is named in honour of Alan Turing, whose pioneering work in theoretical and applied mathematics, engineering and computing are considered to be the key disciplines comprising the emerging field of data science.
