Prestigious International Annual Awards Program Honors Standout Conversational AI Platform 

SAN FRANCISCO - June 21, 2023 – Cognigy, a Conversational AI market leader, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Best Natural Language Understanding Solution” award in the sixth annual AI Breakthrough Awards program conducted by AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market today. 

High-quality NLU technology drives significant business value: With its ability to understand and process natural human language, it transforms customer interaction, creating a seamless, efficient, and personalized experience. It’s an essential asset in today's digital era, unlocking new levels of service experiences and business intelligence that lead to better decisions, improved customer satisfaction, and ultimately, a competitive edge. 

Cognigy’s proprietary AI platform, Cognigy.AI, is powered by advanced machine learning and offers outstanding recognition accuracy in any language, with minimum training effort. It can understand over 99% with 28 language-specific models and comes with a Universal Language Model designed to support any natural or artificial language and pre-trained data from over 100 languages.  

The platform’s extensive prebuilt lexicon entries, combined with few-shot learning, enable the platform to understand even the most complex user inputs. Cognigy.AI’s deep learning technology is also augmented with Large Language Models (LLMs) to deliver superior Intent Mapping, Entity Recognition, and Contextual Mapping, making it possible to handle customer requests and navigate non-linear dialogues with dynamic context switching. 

“Our goal is to deliver intelligent conversations, effortlessly. Built on deep learning technology and augmented with Large Language Models (LLM), Cognigy NLU gracefully handles requests across channels, delivering a next-gen customer experience. Thank you to AI Breakthrough for recognizing the hard work and dedication the Cognigy team has put into developing this award-winning technology,” said Philipp Heltewig, Cognigy's CEO and Co-Founder.
