What Matters, Episode 17: Chat and Emotions with Craig Tucker

We are excited to announce the latest episode of our podcast What Matters! 

ChatOps is core to all things we do at Mattermost. But sometimes it can be difficult to discern the meaning or emotion behind the words. To find out more, PJ sat down with Craig Tucker, the founder of V.E.R.N. AI, a text-based artificial intelligence tool that helps to understand the emotions of people communicating online. 

What Matters, Episode 17: Chat and Emotions with Craig Tucker 

As we see more and more communication using text and chat collaboration, it’s important that we are able to put context around the words and the emotions behind them. 

Can you tell when someone is frustrated? What about when they’re sarcastic? 

Working with university scholars around the world, Craig and his team have tried to put a pin in sentiment analysis and advance toward a better check on what users are really trying to say.
