CAPSELLA pilot project will examine the linguistic signature and capture the subtle idiosyncrasies in the ways citizens are expressing their perceptions about food in different regions of a city.
“Subtle idiosyncrasies” signifies the different way each person is talking about food, which is influenced by many things: country, age, gender, profession, preferences, educational status, financial status, access to information and resources etc. All these aspects shape “the color” of the language somebody uses to express his/her preferences or dislikes. The analysis CAPSELLA will perform will be in the position to capture and visualize these sentiments.

In this ASSET demonstration, visitors can take ASSET dedicated demo-device and go through the “demo-store”. The  visitor will approach a certain product and the demo-device will tell the visitor wirelessly which products he/she is in front of. The ASSET-position prototype demonstrates how it integrates this functionality into everyday shopping routines by seemlessy detecting the product of interest. The aim of the ASSET project is to let consumers make informed purchasing decisions in the retail store.

In this way it supports the community manager in understanding who is more active, how to engage the community to generate more contributions and which sub-groups of interest are emerging.
