In Cognition, people-not devices-are at the center of everything we do.
Our tech moves beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together-whether that's colleagues brainstorming around a giant digital whiteboard, scientists "meeting" on the surface of a virtual Mars, or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we're incorporating diverse groundbreaking technologies, from the revolutionary Holographic Processing Unit to computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and more. We're a growing team of talented engineers and artists putting technology on a human path across all devices, including Microsoft HoloLens, Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Kinect for Azure, the Internet of Things, Tablets, Desktops and more! We believe Mixed Reality technology empowers every person and organization to achieve more. If you do too, we need you!
