Facial coding and eye tracking are advanced AI technologies that analyze facial expressions and muscle movements from video feeds to derive attention, engagement, and emotion levels; eye tracking analyzes pupil movement to understand where the user is looking on a mobile or desktop screen.
Speaking on the patent achievement, Ranjan Kumar, founder & CEO of Entropic, said, “The grant of this patent is a testimony to the team’s tireless effort and unparalleled dedication, and it speaks to the company’s competency in pioneering and testing the frontiers of AI technologies. We are ecstatic to bring this revolutionary Multimodal Emotion AI technology to market.
We look forward to empowering brands with disruptive AI forces with the purpose to deliver consumer-centric marketing and product experiences. “Traditionally, the science of consumer research relied on stated responses (surveys and focus group discussions) to understand consumer preferences. While this answers 5% of consumer nuance, 95% of consumers’ subconscious and emotional choices remain in the black box. Tech like facial coding, eye tracking, & voice AI will provide brands with answers to this 95% of questions, helping them better understand their consumers and deliver experiences that resonate at a deeper level.” He further added.
Entropik’s ability to provide accurate, efficient, and impartial consumer insights, has become the preferred solution for global retail brands. With its recent advancements and breakthroughs in Multimodal Emotion AI technology, the company has emerged as a leader in the industry and earned recognition for the same.
