Spaceout.vr is an innovative startup building a mobile VR social platform for its users.
As part of the experience Spaceout is creating, users can choose to sync with their Facebook account. By doing so, a personalized virtual environment is built for them that reflects their interests and serves relevant content. In order to do this, a rich profile of user interests is generated automatically based on the user's posts and other information.
DSense helped the Spaceout team with automatic user profile generation by leveraging IBM Watson's natural language processing API and performing data analysis to identify the best profile generation strategies.
