“The current study examined the reliability and validity of Nemesysco’s Layered Voice Analysis technology and found that it can be useful for assessing stress from the human voice”, said Hirokazu Tachikawa, Chief Researcher of Psycholosoft research group. “The study conducted by the research group is of extreme importance to us, as it indicates that LVA technology can be used to reliably identify people suffering from stress.”
“…CEO and Founder of Nemesysco, Amir Liberman commented, “We understand that hiring employees is an investment risk for any business and are excited to bring an affordable, flexible and accurate solution to the market. We aim to create a comfort zone for employers hiring new staff and have developed an application that can suit all businesses of all sizes around the world. No matter where you come from, what education or background you’ve had, you’re voice can still give away your true intentions”.

We measure managerial affective states during earnings conference calls by analyzing conference call audio files using vocal emotion analysis software. We hypothesize and find that, when managers are scrutinized by analysts during conference calls, positive and negative affects displayed by managers are informative about the firm’s financial future. Analysts do not incorporate this information when forecasting near-term earnings. When making stock recommendation changes, however, analysts incorporate positive but not negative affect. This study presents new evidence that managerial vocal cues contain useful information about a firm’s fundamentals, incremental to both quantitative earnings information and qualitative “soft” information conveyed by linguistic content.
During the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Liberman demonstrated the system on President Clinton’s famous disclaimer, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” After analyzing an audio tape of the statement 100 times, the Verdicator showed that Clinton “was telling the truth,” Liberman says, “but he had very high levels of cognitive stress, or ‘guilt knowledge.’ He didn’t have sexual relations, but he did have something else.”
