About Us

Emotions Make the World Go Round

Everything we do at Canvs stems from our obsession with human emotions. We believe that feelings have an enormous, unseen influence on the world, which may hold the secret to many of our biggest challenges. By advancing knowledge of how emotions can be consistently and accurately measured, Canvs enables people to understand each other better and communicate more effectively.

Canvs is the industry standard in emotion measurement. We use patented semantic analysis technology to understand how people feel, why they feel that way, and the business impact. Our clients include some of the world's largest media companies, brands, and agencies. Organizations including Comcast, Fox, Turner and Netflix use Canvs to create research efficiencies, unlock marketing opportunities and increase revenue with the power of emotional insights. Canvs is an official Facebook Media Solutions partner, and Nielsen Social's sole provider of qualitative insights.
