Trust in Government Consulting
Test the impacts of social media misinformation on Canadian’s view of the federal government and to track trust in government.
Language Emotion Classification
Analyzed the level of trust in government using our natural language processing technique.
Implemented scientific methodology to determine political affiliation of those in our target sample.
Classified conversations on government and key policy areas according to their emotional valence.
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
