ASIS - Online Seminar - Emotion Detection via Voice Analysis (7 Jul 2022)

28 Jun 2022 5:10 PM | Anonymous

ASIS Hong Kong Chapter is organizing an online seminar about how technology can help detecting emotions through voice analysis. ACFE Hong Kong Chapter members can register free of charge.  Please refer to the event flyer for details.


Layered Voice Analysis (LVA) monitors the uncontrolled parameters of the human voice that emerge when a person speaks. This Genuine Emotion Detection identifies the 151 micro markers within the words spoken.

It doesn’t matter how you speak (whether you are acting angry or calm) or what language you speak in, it is language agnostic and is indifferent to any expressed tonality. The technology only monitors how you genuinely feel in a certain situation.

LVA identifies the unique patterns in the human voice, patterns that we as persons have a difficulty to identify on our own. Through 25 years of research, the technology has learnt to identify and correlate with these key human emotions to show us what the other side really feels.

The LVA uses a set of 151 micro voice markers and uses algorithms that together can identify and scale profound emotions and logical states such as: Stress | Excitement | Hesitation | Confusion | Mental Effort | Concentration | Energy | Embarrassment | Arousal | Anger | Sadness | Happiness
