TrueTalk mimics how the brain deciphers emotions from language, text and facial images. It lets us view and record the emotions of ourselves and others as data.
Understanding ourselves and what people really feel is crucial to managing relationships. What we say in the heat of the moment may not be what we mean. TrueTalk turns emotions into data so we get it right instead of floundering about. This is an emerging technology with 4 potential areas of application:
Health and well-being: our bodies respond physically to how we think, feel and act. Emotions data can be used to detect, manage and monitor health problems like stress, anxiety, depression and burnout. The TrueTalk webservice is currently testing with therapists and clients in the UK and Australia.
Relationships – dating, friends, family, work. When relationships go bad the effect can be awful. When they go well the impact is far reaching. Emotions data helps you achieve relationship goals.
Education and learning – Students who understand themselves and others learn more effectively and interact better. This equals better exam results, higher earnings and increased job satisfaction.
Self-development – those who understand the various parts of their personality, habits, beliefs and tendencies understand and empathise with others better and have a greater chance of life success.
The TrueTalk webservice is due to be launched in 2019.
