We created COGNITUUM to provide a new way for organizations to continuously improve & evolve.

Today, we build a platform that provides elite performance by enabling the right decision from the right data delivered in the right way, at the right time.

Here are some things COGNITUUM can do:



A COGNITUUM Agent can recognize what its seeing. It can be used to “classify” objects based on data.



Our agents can make predictions of future events and their utility (i.e. how good or bad that future is expected to be).



COGNITUUM provides predictions about the future, as well as, the un-observed past. It describes the “present” state (i.e. recognition & classifications), and returns anomalies, i.e what is missing &/or extra in the current observation compared with what it was expecting.



Three factors affect the Agent’s behavior:

  1. The Genome.

    The genome is your COGNITUUM agent configuration. It consists of various connections and parameters that can be changed for the specific environment or problem the agent faces. Changing the genome changes the agent’s behavior.

  2. Your Data.

    Whether your data is streaming live, provided manually, or given as a bulk training session, the agent will learn from it. Unlike other techniques, learning isn’t a one-time event for your agent. It will continue learning new data, in real-time. No a priori classifications are needed. No knowledge engineering is needed. And you don’t need to know anything about your data before giving it to an agent. The agent’s behavior adapts to the data it receives.

  3. Feedback From You or Its Environment.

    The agent can be trained to change its behavior through operant conditioning or reinforcement learning. The agent changes its behavior to achieve the goals you or the environment have provided through positive or negative feedback.

The Founders

Dr Peter Olausson
[Founding Partner/CEO]

Peter started his career as a cognitive neuroscientist at Yale University. In 2007 he created his first company, and he has been engaged with startup companies ever since. Prior to founding COGNITUUM Peter was the founder of IncSphere - a merchant bank that invests in cross-border expansion. In addition, Peter was a Managing Partner with Impulsa, helping companies transform and grow. More recently, Peter co-founded IDIQIO, a company dedicated to enhancing intelligent action in complex organizations.


Sevak Avakians
[Founding Partner/CTO]

Sevak is a physicist, electrical engineer, information security analyst, and software developer who has developed the next-generation cognitive computing approach to machine intelligence. He studied at SUNY Stony Brook and worked at Brookhaven National Labs under a grant from NASA. His work in quantum telecommunication was awarded a prestigious prize. Prior to founding COGNITUUM he served as an information security analyst at the elite incident response team for the Federal Reserve Bank System.
