Now, new app to colour-code 'good, bad or neutral' messagesJun 13, 4:30 pm
London, June 13 (ANI): A group of researchers in Britain have developed an app that will color code text messages, tweets and emails, letting users know if the information they is good, bad or somewhere in between.Researchers at the University of Portsmouth in the UK call it 'sentiment analysis'.The app an algorithm designed to determine whether a mobile communication will make you happy, with a message like 'Hey, we can have dinner tonight!' or bummed, with messages saying 'I am so angry at you!', or indifferent with messages like, 'I need you to pick up the kids at 5.'If the communique is positive, it will show up highlighted in green, if it is negative, it will show up in red, and if it is neither good nor bad, it will show up in blue, The Los Angeles Times reports.The app comes 'pre-trained,' but users can also teach it which messages they perceive as negative and positive by labeling messages as they come in.Mohamed Medhat Gaber, who worked on the project, told the BBC that the main aim behind the app is to 'make the user aware of the negative contents they receive so they are able to manage their stress in the best possible way.'According to the report, so far, the technology has been tested only on a few Android phones, and the researchers have not announced plans to market the app. (ANI)
