We make the invisible visible

Cognovi Labs has a first-of-its-kind proprietary technology

It measures emotions from textual and transcribable data in its native language to predict people’s decisions and shape the outcome


We dial up your results

Facts and sentiments only report what people say and how they say it, not what they will do next.

That’s why we extract what people feel (emotions) and what they will do next by quantifying the psychology of the human decision-making process.

How you can shape the outcome.
Words matter. We identify the exact words, phrases and narratives to evoke those precise emotions that lead to your desired outcome.
How people will act.
By quantifying intent to act, we can, for the first time, provide that “look around the corner,” before the action occurs.
What decisions people make.
Fifty years of research in psychology, neurology and behavioral economics have firmly established that the vast majority of human decisions are made by the subconscious mind based on emotions. Our proprietary Psychological AI anticipates those decisions.
How people feel when they say it.
Our machine learning algorithms are trained natively in 18+ languages to measure the emotional undertone in context, without the loss of translation, and at a precision of an emotionally intelligent person.
How people say it.
More appropriately called "tonation" by academics, this measures the tone of the conversation, whether positive, negative or neutral. Given that people rarely follow through on what they say, sentiment analysis is rarely predictive nor actionable.
What people say.
Our technology provides thematic context by extracting the discussion topics and facts from any textual and transcribable data, at scale and in real time.

How we dial up the results



We measure ten topic-specific emotions from any textual and transcribable data natively in 18 original languages from publicly available sources, internal company data or custom data generated through our proprietary tool, the Dynamic Diagnostic Interview.



We predict from these emotions what decisions people will make and uncover the level of action readiness towards your company, product, brand, message or event.



We identify the exact words, phrases and narratives to evoke those precise emotions to shape the outcome.
