What happened in CogX 2019?

Taking place during the first half of London Tech Week in the vibrant Knowledge Quarter of Kings Cross, CogX offered visitors the space to learn, discover, and connect with the people and technologies that are shaping the future of humanity.

There has arguably never been a more crucial point in human history – the moment when we have a collective responsibility to tackle the big challenges of sustainability, security and global stability and work together to navigate toward a brighter and better future.

By convening the brightest minds on the planet from industry, government and academia, CogX 2019 took an optimistic look at the challenges ahead and demonstrated the tremendous opportunity that AI and emerging tech provides for supporting a better world.

CogX echoed the global goals of the UN and other leading bodies around the world which represent the shared values we wish to uphold – for business, for humanity and for the planet.

From the Impact Stage to the Health Care zone, from showcasing the future of work to discussing the ethics of emerging technologies, from tackling climate change to creating spaces where innovation is presented, explained and brought to life, CogX created a platform to move the conversation forward.
