We measure emotions at the Festival Clásico Olmedo
Neuroscientific technology and artificial intelligence used to measure, for the first time, the emotions of the audience at a theater festival
Olmedo, July 21, 2023
The Olmedo Clásico Festival is one of the most important events for classical theater in our country. This year, a pioneering project developed by Goli Neuromarketing will take place there, aiming to measure and analyze the emotions of the spectators.
Specifically, the emotions of the attendees at the different theatrical performances held in the Palacio del Caballero de Olmedo courtyard will be measured. This will provide insights into how they feel during the play, their reactions to the scenography, lighting, or costumes used by the theater companies, as well as their attention to the stage movement. Consequently, the project will also reveal the anticipation, attention, and interest shown during each of the represented works.
This initiative marks the first time sucha a project has bee carried out at a theater festival
This initiative marks the first time such a project has been carried out at a theater festival, providing real and objective data regarding the emotions evoked by the performances. Advanced neuroscientific technology will be employed to collect data using wireless devices that capture images and immediately convert them into data transmitted in real-time to Golineuro AI, the company’s proprietary Artificial Intelligence platform where analysis takes place. No images are recorded or stored during the process.
The data collection process will reveal aspects such as where the spectators direct their gaze, their emotions through non-verbal cues, as well as their behavior and level of attention.
