But over the last few months, we’ve been quietly researching methods to take the social elements of the Stream LXP (formerly Curatr) platform, along with social interactions from other tools on the market, to effectively analyze the learning value that is generated from these experiences.
Finally, we had a breakthrough following our work with text analysis, leading to the birth of the Social Intelligence Dashboard – SID for short! Full disclosure – we’re pretty excited about this, and so far everyone we have shown it to has shared a similar level of enthusiasm.
In a nutshell, SID is a series of different visualizations that take the results of the classification of comments to show whether they are considered passive or engaged, as well as an overall score for the sentiment of the comment.
We have created two methods to make this data available:
Some of you will have seen a demo at our recent launch of the new Learning Experience Platform, but for those who haven’t here is a sneak peak of the prototype version:

Solving Problems with SID
Seemingly, for every question I come up with that can be answered using comment analysis, someone else comes along with yet another problem that be solved through the use of this tool.
The list is endless and continues to grow as everyone’s understanding of it becomes more refined. I won’t bore you with that list just yet, but I have put together a few things SID can help you better determine which we have found particularly interesting as a result of our experiments:
How Does SID Work?
SID uses advanced statistical techniques powered by a combination of deep learning recurrent neural net algorithms to label comments according to a predefined model of ‘what good looks like’ – in other words, AI.
Our models are either generic, built as a result of our research and own training date (built up over thousands of previous comments and conversations), or can be tailored to an organizations requirements, for example, to look for a specific sort of interaction.
Our standard proprietary model can rank user comments in terms of their value as perceived by the Community of Inquiry Framework. As we see more comments and conversations, our model gets stronger, learning from the breadth and depth of conversation that occurs within Stream LXP (formerly Curatr).
How Can I Get SID?
SID will be available with all Stream LXP (formerly Curatr) Pro licenses, built directly into the platform. Currently, it is also possible to gain access to the dashboard even if you don’t have Stream LXP (formerly Curatr). If you already have access to your own Learning Platform, you can make use of the Machine Learning Engine for the reporting in Learning Locker® via one of our apps.
