Founded in 2015, Elemental Cognition (EC) is committed to developing a future where AI can actually think, providing solutions to real problems and explaining the ‘why’ behind its answers.
For AI systems to fulfil EC’s mission and become partners in building and sharing knowledge, they need to understand the meaning behind language – not just identify its patterns. EC builds technology capable of reading, learning, and interacting fluently in natural language to facilitate complex decision making. The team is teaching its AI system to learn in ways similar to children: through reading, collaborative dialog, and reasoning.
Oxford Languages equips EC with our deep language resources to improve their AI system’s abilities in natural language understanding. The Oxford Semantic English Language Dataset (SELD) provides a rich ontology of word senses to disambiguate levels of concepts for greater ontological understanding, enabling EC’s AI system to learn language and interpret meaning.

We believe there’s a whole world of avid readers and fluent writers, waiting to emerge with the right tools and encouragement.
We believe in digital inclusion – where life stage, visual impairment, dyslexia, or dis/ability aren’t barriers to the online opportunities that others enjoy.
Most importantly of all, we believe that everyone’s entitled to the best possible learning and language support on their own personal journey – from literacy to life.’
