Cognitive Electronics is pleased to announce that its first patent has been issued by the United States Patent and Trademark office. Patent number 8,200,992 was issued on June 12, 2012 in the United States, and is pending in other countries. This patent covers the core technology of Cognitive Smart Memory. “The issuance of our first patent is recognition of the revolutionary nature of the Cognitive Electronics Smart Memory and the tremendous work done by Andrew (Felch) and Rick (Granger) in developing an architecture capable of keeping up with the tremendous amount of real time data businesses have to deal with,” said Mac Dougherty, CEO, Cognitive Electronics. “Cognitive Smart Memory leverages Andrew and Rick’s insights into the algorithms used by the human brain for abilities such as object recognition that we as humans take for granted but which have traditionally been very difficult for computers to perform efficiently.”
In addition to this patent covering the fundamental operation of the Cognitive Electronics co-processor, Cognitive Electronics has a number of additional patents pending in the U.S. and abroad, covering various aspects of its technology. Even at this early stage of its existence, Cognitive Electronics is continuing research into future areas of patentable technology and expects to build a robust patent portfolio in the coming years.
