It permits customers to construct personalized exams to gather unconscious and acutely aware responses — like emotion, reminiscence and motivation — from a focused viewers pattern towards a inventive asset.

Different corporations working in the identical space are Expoze.io, Consideration Perception, CoolTool, Hotjar, Sentient Choice Science and Nielsen Neuro.
