RJI Futures Lab update #64

Social news via Storyful and emotion detection from Eyeris


PART 1: Storyful
Storyful is a social media news agency that scans the social Web to deliver verified user-generated content to news organizations and provide editorial support to source, verify and contextualize the content. Founder and Chief Executive Officer Mark Little explains how the company offers a new model of reporting.

PART 2: Eyeris
The startup Eyeris has developed a platform that can recognize and record a viewer's emotional reactions in real time as the person watches video content. We hear how it works from Eyeris founder and Chief Executive Officer JR Alaoui. We also hear from Paul Bolls, co-director of the PRIME Lab at the University of Missouri, about how the technology might fit with the needs of advertisers.
