Heartbeat AI is an emotion analytics platform. We help organizations to understand people to improve the human experience.


Uncover how people feel: your customers, employees, patients, voters.

Our platform quickly transforms text input from any source - survey open-ends, call center transcripts, customer feed-back, product reviews, employee comments - into ten primary and a hundred secondary emotion categories, which are derived from thousands of words and phrases.

These emotion groups reveal insights into the "deep why" behind behaviour, and are accessible through a user-friendly dashboard within minutes.  We deliver the data essential for understanding the main drivers of human behaviour in depth, with accuracy, at scale, in near-real time.

Why Heartbeat is different

Heartbeat was built by market researchers and experts in psychology and linguistics to automate the analysis of text of any size - from a few interviews to a few hundred survey open-ends to thousands and millions call centre transcripts. We take emotionally rich unstructured data and turn it into emotion clusters that tell powerful and honest human stories.


  • Our algorithm is based on supervised machine learning, natural language processing, psycholinguistics and neuroscience.
  • We guarantee 95% accuracy by using contextualized custom taxonomies.
  • 97% match rate (emotional content that gets categorized).
  • We provide consistent results by eliminating the human bias of manual coding.


  • The platform is simple to learn and easy to use.
  • No "black boxes".
  • It integrates word frequency and non-binary sentiment summary.
  • Our beautiful dashboard has drill-downs to verbatim comments for each emotion, which helps tell a story.
  • We work in close collaboration with a client and offer customization - from custom topic recognition to custom taxonomies and visualizations.

Simple steps from data to insight

DIY or Full Service

Easy to understand, regardless of context

Primary emotions are easy to understand because they are universal to all human beings.

All-in-one dashboard

A topline dashboard includes top words and phrases, sentiment summary, a primary emotion chart and top secondary emotions. Each section can be filtered by metadata, such as demographics.

Not your usual word cloud

Word clouds include only emotion words and phrases. You can filter by primary emotions (for example, Joy, Trust, Fear) or metadata (for example, gender, country).

Chart the emotional journey of your customer

Summary charts show differences between questions or demographic groups. For example, this report shows a dramatic difference between emotions that women feel when craving chocolate (sadness and anger) compared to eating their favourite chocolate (joy and pleasure). Check it out for yourself.

Easy text-mining

It's a transparent tool with drill-downs and verbatim word usage for each primary emotion. You can see exactly what words were categorized and the exact phrases these words came from.

Once you really understand how your customers and employees feel, you can build powerful predictive and prescriptive models that will enable your organization to be not just data driven, but human-centric. Our clients use Heartbeat to predict customer churn, understand loyalty drivers and build better strategies.
