Affectiva and iMotions Announce Partnership to Add Emotion Analytics to Biometric Research Solution

Affectiva and iMotions announced a partnership and availability of Affectiva's Affdex facial coding and emotion analytics software on the iMotions Biometric Research Platform. With this joint solution human behavior researchers can combine facial coding and emotion analytics with eye tracking, brainwave measurement (EEG), as well as physiological sensors (GSR, ECG, EMG) on top of traditional surveys and questionnaires, which are also fully integrated. This enables them to, for example, assess the impact of new digital and learning experiences such as gaming, on affect and cognition and ultimately user behavior. The partnership enables Affectiva to better support its clients that require real-time emotion analytics to be part of a multimodal on-premises research solution, and allows iMotions to harden its biometric research solution with Affectiva's emotion analytics.
