Polis is an AI-powered conversation platform used by companies, governments, nonprofits, and political parties around the world to inform decision-making. Polis combines quantitative and qualitative methods with advanced statistical methods to function as a state-of-the-art social research tool.
Polis works by creating a “conversation” that participants engage with by adding their opinions and voting on the opinions of others. This is the sort of data usually collected through time-consuming and expensive community forums, interviews, or focus groups.
Then machine learning methods uncover patterns in real-time—mapping out the entire conversation by visualizing correlations between opinions and participants, sorting participants into opinion groups, and surfacing areas of consensus and divisiveness.
