What is Cognitron?

Cognitron is the world's first AI web-server who's sole purpose is to learn all about human intelligence. Along the way, Cognitron aims to develop the best possible set of cognitive tests

What is Involved?

When you start the Challenge, Cognitron will suggest a series of 12 tests for you to try. Once you have completed these first 12 tests, You will be able to see how you perform relative to other participants and to challenge your friends to beat your scores.

You also will be able to come back and to improve your score or try the new tests that Cognitron develops as it learns more about human intelligence.

Get started today!

Take the Cognitron Challenge

Cognitron starts with conventional cognitive tests, then it will progressively design newer, better and more brain-twisting exercises based on what it learns.

The Challenge will take about 30 minutes in total.
After completing all of the tests, you will be shown your results.

Cognitron was developed by a crack team of cognitive scientists, clinical researchers and computer engineers based in the Computational, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Laboratory at Imperial College London - one of the highest ranked universities in the world.

Tests developed by the Cognitron team in the past have been taken by hundreds of thousands of people. They are widely used in scientific research and clinical assessment around the globe.

The team has published hundreds of papers on the topic of human cognition and they are experts in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The project builds on high-profile findings from previous research investigating the neural-basis of intelligence (Hampshire et al., Neuron 2012) and machine learning methods based on Bayesian learning (Lorenz et al., TICS 2017).
