What is the CogX Festival?
The CogX Festival started in 2017 to focus attention on the rising impact of AI on Industry, Government and Society, a subject which has never been higher on the global agenda. Over 6 years, CogX has now evolved to be a Festival of Inspiration, Impact and Transformational Change, with its mission to address the question: “How do we get the next 10 years right?”.
With our expansion to The O2, it will be our biggest and most impactful Festival to date. The new venue allows us to both maximise impact through inclusivity and scale whilst simultaneously delivering an unrivalled programme for executives. We expect an audience consisting of entrepreneurs and CEOs, students from over 100 universities, and academics, activists, artists, and policy makers who make up our community.
Past speakers include Jensen Huang, CEO Nvidia, John Kerry, former US Secretary of State, Margrethe Vestager EU Commissioner for Competition, Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland, Martin Sorrell and the great Nile Rodgers.
