Cogknit applies machine learning to text, speech, and computer vision. Target wants the shopping experience to be more accessible and inclusive for all its customers, including the visually challenged.

Cognitifai uses computer vision to index and make sense of physical world phenomena. Imagine a shelf stacked with mineral water bottles. A guest picks one from the lot.

This enables real-time intervention to facilitate inventory management.

Cognitifai is also working on tech that can be applied for surveillance, healthcare, and hyper-local intelligence in smart cities and retail enterprises.
