The Cognitive Development Hub, part of the Centre for Advanced Computing (CAC) at Queen’s University, is a professional software design and development lab for data analytics and cognitive computing applications. It serves as a collaborative resource for cognitive and data-intensive research and application development for Queen’s University, other Ontario universities through its affiliation with the Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP), IBM and other companies.

The rise in the use of AI and data analytics technologies in industry has led to a race to promote and advance these fields. Each technology has its own specialties, strengths and limitations making choosing between them overwhelming.  The Hub provides both technical and development support for projects involving natural language processing, machine learning, data analytics, text analysis and image analysis. Hub members have expertise in a variety of packages and software platforms including IBM Watson, R, SPSS, IBM Bluemix, Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark.
