As we're separating words from intonation, this technology might be great for travelers, who'll be able to gauge the emotions of people who speak another language. At the very least, it might help a tourist avoid getting ripped off.

With this technology, millions of husbands around the world will finally be able to understand their wives. No longer shall we have insensitive men who can't hear what women are not saying. Simply slap this on a wearable and it'll sell like hotcakes, though remember to advertise in wedding fairs, just to be sure.

But it's a double-edged sword. It could totally backfire on the insincere, especially if wives also have this technology.

"I love you." [LYING]

"I'm sorry." [EGO]

"I feel sick; I can't take out the garbage." [LAZY]

That's a rather substantial either/or, Michael. So much so that doesn't it more or less negate any value of voice analytics?

Thanks for the information Michael, I would tend to think there are just too many factors which could affect the results, I mean people fake "happiness" for instance - all the time.  : )

Just to follow up -- the friend repeated the test and got 'stress' and 'vengeance' again. Then, on a third try, it came up with self-esteem, leadership, and charisma. All of which are true. So maybe it's not as fine-tuned as it seems?

I agree, and I also think it's an interesting exercise regardless of how accurate it is. I tried it on an upbeat, cheerful friend, and it detected stress and resentment as primary emotions. That sort of thing can either be an uncomfortable revelation, or an off-base assumption. We were in a noisy environment, so it's possible the algorithm had a hard time detecting intonation.

Michael while those are key areas, the emotional state can determine the meaning of a word or phrase so it could impact the overall interpretation of what is said at any time. Whenever analysis is performed it is worth considering.

Beyond Verbal certainly thinks it can be!

@Lyndon_Henry   Good point reqarding Lie Detectors - which are loosely based on this notion of measuring responses. I don't think anyone would consider them "fool-proof" and intonation analytics probably faces many of the same challenges.

I do find verbal intonation intriquing, but I wonder if analytics can really be applied to this ?
