CognitiveScale Wins Global AI Award for Responsible AI and Ethics
CognitiveScale’s Cortex Certifai product has been named the winner of the Responsible AI and Ethics award in the Global AI Awards 2019-2020. Cortex Certifai is the “world’s first AI Risk Scanner application that automatically detects and scores vulnerabilities in any black-box AI model.”
Cortex Certifai helps organizations look under the hood of machine learning (ML) models and answer these questions:
- How did the AI application and the ML model driving it predict what they predicted?
- Has the model treated some customers differently from others? Is it biased?
- Is the model compliant with industry regulations?
- How easily can the model be fooled?

The organization behind the award, the Global Annual Achievement Awards for Artificial Intelligence (also known as Awards.AI), established the award “to support the AI community by recognizing the hard work and dedication of those working in the field.” Awards.AI is now in its fourth year.
Awards.AI was created by Andy Pardoe, a leading expert in AI who is recognized as a global AI influencer by IBM Watson, with the goal of “highlighting achievements in a number of industries and ranging from start-ups, established companies and individuals”.
Awards.AI gives out more than 60 awards across seven categories:
- AI research awards, ranging from Best Research Paper to Best New Algorithm and Best Academic Spin-Out.
- AI technical awards
- AI industry awards
- AI business applications awards
- AI customer application awards
- Junior AI awards
- AI special awards such as Journalism and Analysis, Responsible AI and Ethics, AI Company of the Year, AI Person of the Year, and even AI Alarmist of the Year.
Category winners are judged by a panel of experts in the field and a public vote on shortlisted nominees.
We congratulate CognitiveScale on winning this award and hope that more offerings of this kind will be soon available on the market.
