Our Solutions

ASI’s artificial intelligence, Polly™, determined Canadians’ level of trust, and emotion towards the government and key policy areas. Polly™ found that the furthest right 5% of the political spectrum was far more negative than the rest of the spectrum. This was not seen on the left; instead, there was a consistent increase in political engagement and a gradual change in views. In partnership with TVO and iPolitics, we provided compelling periodic snapshots of Canadians’ trust in our institutions. Snapshots were also provided on the governance challenges facing our next federal government. These snapshots can be viewed and were published weekly on TVO.org and iPolitics.ca
