BEYOND VERBAL LAUNCHES MOODIES - THE WORLD’S FIRST EMOTIONS ANALYTICS APP FOR iOS
App Analyzes Over 400 Emotions, Tells Users How People Are Feeling
Tel Aviv, Israel, January 23, 2013 – Beyond Verbal, the Emotions Analytics world leader, has unveiled its first mobile application, named Moodies, to bring the patented technology to consumers on the go. The app extracts, decodes, and measures a full spectrum of human emotions from their raw voice in real time as they speak. With the click of a button and about 20 second of speech, Moodies provides users the option to analyze their own voice as well as understand the emotions of individuals around them.
The app’s technology is based on Beyond Verbal’s 18 years of research by physicists and neuropsychologists, who studied more than 70,000 test subjects in more than 30 languages. Bundled into cloud-based API software, the company’s emotions detection engines allow devices and applications to understand an individuals’ emotional dimension including mood, attitude, and decision-making characteristics as they speak.
The Beyond Verbal team believes Moodies will open consumers to explore the technology’s potential in self evaluations, relationships, human resources, pitch feedback, language barriers and more. The app provides a running screen of results and allows users to share the resulted mood analysis through email or via social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
“Over the past six months we have envisioned a world where our Emotions Analytics software is embedded into any voice-enabled device or platform. As we continue to reach additional markets and grow as a company, we believe this vision is coming to life,” says Yuval Mor, CEO, Beyond Verbal. “Moodies offers everyone a chance to analyze their own emotions by simply clicking a button on their smart phone device. We envision Moodies as a front-runner to a new breed of emotionally-aware apps and invite third-party developers to join in, license the technology for their own solutions and use our API and SDK to access our engine. As the industry continues to evolve, we believe it’s only a matter of time until we start seeing this sort of technology being integrated into a myriad of consumer and B2B product and service applications.”
The company launched in May, 2013 and has closed $3.8 million round of funding led by prominent angel investors Kenges Rakishev, and Sami Sagol. Beyond Verbal licenses its technology, which holds four U.S. patents and allows third-party developers access through its API. The app is available on iOS and can be downloaded here.
