Beyond Verbal Wants To Know How You're Feeling
Beyond Verbal is developing voice recognition software that can not only understand words but also pick up on the emotional nuances of a person's voice to determine how he or she is feeling. The company envisions its patented "emotion detection" technology finding its way into a broad range of applications including customer services, games, dating services and personal assistants such as Apple's Siri.
Launched this month, Tel Aviv, Israel-based Beyond Verbal just raised $2.8 million in financing from Genesis Angels, a new venture capital firm. Yuval Mor is the company's CEO.
