Time to get emotional

Voice is the most intuitive, natural and efficient way to communicate. It’s also an emotional microscope. The award winning Phebi solution goes beyond what people say, illuminating how they felt when they said it. ​The combination of analysis of both emotion (based on ‘tonal analysis’ of the respondent’s vocal characteristics) and sentiment (based on the words used) helps researchers understand people more deeply and better predict their behaviour.​ In effect, Phebi allows researchers to add qualitative depth to their quantitative surveys. And here at Askia we are delighted…

Using Web Services in Online Research

Web services – which are a way of allowing disparate systems to share information, make enquiries and get responses over the internet – are old news to web developers, having been around in one form or another since the turn of the millennium. But for many survey programmers, they’re low-hanging fruit left on the vine, just waiting to be picked. By tapping into these services, survey programmers can provide functionality that would have taken many hours or days to set up. Whether displaying extra information about the subject…

Short Text Coding

Guest Blog: Tim Brandwood, Digital Taxonomy Thinking about all the brands of beer you know, what’s the first one that comes to mind? Heineken? Budweiser? Stella Artois? Doom Bar?!
