Our Story

 

 

Receptiviti is a data science company that utilizes language, psychology and artificial intelligence to derive unprecedented insights into the drivers of human behaviour. Our mission is to help organizations gain a deep understand the people that matter to them. To this end, we are building the world's most advanced computational language psychology platform for understanding human emotions, drives, traits, and behaviours.

 

​​We maintain our position at the forefront of our field through relentless innovation, experimentation, and research, and we support a community of academics and researchers at top universities around the world.

 

Our connections to academia run deep. Receptiviti's core and advisory teams include PhDs, Professors, and Chancellors, and we were co-founded by Dr. James W. Pennebaker, former Chair of the Department of Psychology and currently Centennial Liberal Arts Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Pennebaker is the inventor of LIWC - the gold-standard algorithm in the field of language psychology - a field he pioneered. Dr. Pennebaker has authored ten books, over 300 scientific articles, and received grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Army Research Institute, and other federal agencies for studies in language, emotion, and social dynamics.

 

​As the quantity, accessibility and diversity of communication data grows, Receptiviti continues to be at the forefront of extracting valuable insights for those that care about understanding people. Never has this been more important than today. Our world has seen a seismic societal shift that has powered a rapid change in the way we communicate in all aspects of our lives. With organizational and interpersonal communications now conducted almost exclusively online, the importance of understanding the signals of the emotion, drives, traits, and predictors of behaviour hidden in our communications has become more important than ever before.
