To build better AI,

get Inspired.

Inspired Cognition was founded with the singular idea: how can we optimize AI system development, making it more efficient, effective, and reliable?

How We Work at

Inspired Cognition

Modern AI systems are opaque. We build tools to optimize the AI R&D lifecycle, rapidly identifying system pain points and inspiring creative solutions that solve your most pressing problems.

Supported Products

Inspired Cognition was founded based on award-winning research and open-source software developed in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, and many others. See a sampling of the tools we currently support below:


ExplainaBoard provides “explainable leaderboards” that allow you to compare and contrast the performance of your systems on a fine-grained level, identifying pain points and improving performance effectively.


EaaS provides “evaluation as a service,” allowing you to assess the quality of generated texts using a number of state-of-the-art techniques through a simple API call.


Creating good training data is a science; DataLab is your lab. DataLab allows you to efficiently locate, assess, and manipulate datasets to create the ideal training data for your needs.

Why Inspired

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming as much of a force for world progress as software. However, unlike traditional software engineering, AI engineering introduces a variety of new challenges. Specifically, developing AI systems involves a large amount of design choices with uncertain implications.
