IBM Watson’s Tone Analyzer Service Aims to Disrupt Customer Engagement

Share this post:

A new Beta feature launched today within the IBM Watson Tone Analyzer Service. Now you can analyze your customer support conversations with the new Tone Analyzer for Customer Engagement Endpoint. Escalate customer conversations when they turn sour, or find opportunities to improve customer service scripts, dialog strategies, and customer journeys.

 

When you analyze your data with the new Tone Analyzer for Customer Engagement Endpoint, you’re analyzing it with an alternate Tone Analyzer model specifically trained on customer support conversations on Twitter. This model detects a new set of tones designed specifically for customer engagement use cases. The tones included are frustrated, sad, satisfied, excited, polite, impolite and sympathetic. Learn more about how the model was developed here.

With this addition, we now have two endpoints available:

1. Tone Analyzer General Purpose Endpoint

Use the Tone Analyzer General Purpose Endpoint to monitor social media and other web data. Analyze short-form text like tweets or reviews, or longer documents like articles and blog posts.

–       Tones detected within the General Purpose Endpoint include joy, fear, sadness, anger, disgust, analytical, confident, tentative, openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and emotional range.

2. Tone Analyzer Customer Engagement Endpoint (BETA)

Use the Tone Analyzer Customer Engagement Endpoint to monitor customer service & support conversations.

–       Tones detected with this endpoint include frustrated, sad, satisfied, excited, polite, impolite and sympathetic
