Cognigy.AI Docs

COGNIGY.AI is the Conversational AI Platform focused on the needs of large enterprises to develop, deploy and run Conversational AI’s on any conversational channel.

Given the arising need of voice interfaces as the most natural way of communicating with brands, Cognigy was founded in 2016 by Sascha Poggemann and Phil Heltewig. Our mission: to enable all devices and applications to intelligently communicate with their users via naturally spoken or written dialogue.

Cognigy Webchat

The Cognigy Webchat is a powerful Tool for customers that want to implement a conversational AI into their own Websites or want to showcase a Bot for quick Demonstrations.

The Webchat can be used free of additional charges when used with Cognigy and is available for Download on GitHub.


In addition to sending and receiving regular text messages, the Webchat can also present content and provide interactive inputs in various ways to improve the user experience. Read more about that in our Webchat Features documentation.
