Chevrolet wants you to better understand the positive effects you have on the world around you through some pretty intricate software.
The brand has partnered with IBM Watson to conjure up and release The Chevy Global Positivity System in accordance with September’s “International Day of Positive Thinking.” The system analyzes your personal social media profile (whichever you give permission to analyze) and sorts through posts, tweets and more to score a user’s positivity.
The technology is powered through IBM’s Watson Personality Insights and AlchemyLanguage APIs to provide a snapshot and ranking, which users may then share with their friends. The program will also show your five most used positive words plus your most positive and negative updates.
I tried the system myself and returned a score of 108 out of 200, with Watson giving me the following snapshot:
You are skeptical, somewhat inconsiderate and unconventional.
You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. You are authority-challenging: you prefer to challenge authority and traditional values to help bring about positive changes. And you are solemn: you are generally serious and do not joke much.
Experiences that give a sense of discovery hold some appeal to you.
You are relatively unconcerned with both tradition and taking pleasure in life. You care more about making your own path than following what others have done. And you prefer activities with a purpose greater than just personal enjoyment.
Thanks, robots, for that.
