Kognito is an award-winning developer of role-playing training simulations and games in the areas of health and behavioral health. In our online and mobile simulations, users learn effective communication tactics for managing challenging conversations by practicing speaking with intelligent, fully animated, and emotionally responsive avatars that act and respond like real humans. The main goal of our simulations is to promote behavioral change, early intervention, prevention, and treatment adherence.
Our simulations provide organizations with high quality and cost-effective solutions for training large or geographically dispersed audiences using engaging and effective learning tools that include deliberate practice and real-time, personalized feedback.
Simulations are authored and delivered using Kognito’s proprietary Human Interaction Game Engine™, which is based on research in social cognition, neuroscience, and motivational interviewing. Several studies, including a peer-reviewed randomized controlled study, have provided strong evidence for the effectiveness of the engine and the resulting simulations.
Our learning solutions have been adopted by over 450 state and federal government agencies, universities, NPOs, hospitals, and Fortune 500 companies to train over 1.5 million people in the U.S., Canada, UK, New Zealand, and Australia. Kognito is a privately-owned company located in NYC and comprised of over 30 experts in psychology, learning, assessment, instructional game design, and social entrepreneurship.
