  • Publication number: 20160005058
    Abstract: Since questionnaires are used according to the sensitivity marketing method in the related art, it is not possible to obtain answers from many people at the same time, and also, analysis of the answers requires a long time, which does not match life cycles of product development. Furthermore, there is a problem that credibility of the aggregate result is low without the use of biomarkers. A sensitivity evaluation system for evaluating distributed video information has a client system that transmits an evaluation request related to the video information to an information analysis system and transmits the video information, which is to be viewed by an examinee at a terminal. The terminal transmits a biosignal, which is measured by an apparatus that the examinee wears to the information analysis system which analyzes the biosignal, creates a report related to the video information, and transmits the created report to the client system.
