«Die Energie, welche mit SwissCognitive durch gemeinsame Interessen gebündelt wurde ist beeindruckend. Die Schweizer Wirtschaft beweist einmal mehr ihre Kraft und Innovationsstärke.»

Digitalization is on the rise, employment costs are increasing and consumers have new demands in terms of quality and individuality of offers, as well as the speed at which these offers have to be available. In this disruptive environment companies need technologies and approaches, with which they can rapidly react to these changes and meet the demands.

Cognitive intelligence enables computers to analyze and to learn. Computers acquire linguistic and neural skills. They can think – think for themselves, rethink something, think of something, think in a new way.

This obliges companies to solve complex challenges in a swift, creative and smart way. Companies become more efficient and as a result they have an enormous competitive advantage.

The potential of cognitive intelligence is practically inexhaustible, including its economic potential. We must recognize these potentials and leverage them.

Our goal

  • SwissCognitive wants to enable Swiss companies to become pioneers in the field of cognitive intelligence. Cognitive intelligence should become a key industry sector in Switzerland.
  • SwissCognitive initializes and supports specific projects in Swiss companies.
  • SwissCognitive wants to establish cognitive intelligence in Swiss companies to the extent that they become increasingly independent and more competitive. The trend to outsource should be reversed and new jobs will be created.

To this end, SwissCognitive will bring hundreds of experts, developers and supporters from the fields of economy, research and politics around one table. Together, concrete implementation ideas, pilot projects and best practices will be developed, and the exchange and further enhancement of knowledge and expertise among participating companies will be facilitated.

SwissCognitive creates the platform for innovation and market success – measured against realistic projects!

With 130 participants over 40 large Swiss & International companies from more then 15 industries SwissCognitive represents today over 1 Million employees!
