EMOTION ANALYTICS

icons_retrackUSING FACIAL CODING TO MEASURE AD EFFECTIVENESS

Lightspeed’s Emotion Analytics offers researchers the ability to quantify emotion from more than 5.5 million Lightspeed panelists in real time through Affectiva’s emotion recognition technology built on an automated facial coding system. Using algorithms that measure the movement of all 43 facial muscles, Affectiva’s system quantifies 20 facial expressions and seven emotions, the intensity of those emotions and if those emotions are positive or negative.

Emotion Analytics leverages Affectiva’s dashboard to evaluate the moment-by-moment emotional reaction and engagement to an advertisement by age and gender, these measures are benchmarked against norms built on the analysis of over 24k advertisements.
