PeoplewareAI is an academic spin-off created by researchers from the COLLAB research group specializing in collaborative software engineering, social computing, affective computing and data science. PeoplewareAI intends to transfer skills and technologies to offer people-centered AI data-driven products to the market, to be integrated into AI-enabled software solutions.
PeoplewareAI’s flagship product is BehaViz, an AI product focused on behavioral data, including the recognition of emotions from written texts. One of BehaViz’s engines is EMTk, a search toolkit that can recognize not only the polarity of emotion (positive, negative, neutral) from a written text but also the specific emotion: love, joy, surprise, anger, sadness and fear . This allows a user to focus on analyzing specific emotions. The user can also customize the recognition of emotions not only with an annotated dataset different from the basic one but also with a classification model different from the original one. This allows both greater recognition accuracy and greater flexibility of use. BehaViz can be used as a cloud computing service in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) mode, connecting the service to customer data sources through specific integrations. This allows the user not to have to move their data outside the databases on which they are hosted.
