eCortex is a research and development company dedicated to the idea that the most important advances in artificial intelligence will come from a deep understanding of the mechanisms in the human brain. We perform basic and applied research for defense and intelligence agencies in programs where the challenges are broad enough to defy narrow algorithmic solutions. Ultimately, we aim to develop commercial products for robotics and analysis of image, video, and other data. The company was founded in 2006. It is the exclusive commercial licensee of the Emergent neural network simulator and IDE, along with models of the human visual system originally developed at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
