Using nothing but human voice, the Beyond Wellness API turns a smartphone, microphone-equipped wearable device or app into a sensor.Until now, emotions discovery and tracking have been largely limited to users self-logging and subjectively reporting their perceived emotions. With the Beyond Wellness API, emotional discovery is instantly available in a more insightful, objective, scalable and scientific way. This new technology can be used to spot trends in the change of people’s overall emotional state and can be correlated with daily activities, lifestyle choices, fitness and more.
The company’s technology is based on 19 years of research, hundreds of thousands of emotionally-tagged voices in over 30 languages, and five granted patents. It [technology] decodes and measures moods, attitudes and decision-making traits based on the underlying emotions that are carried through the sound of the human voice.
Beyond Verbal launched in May 2013 and has raised over $7 million to date.
