Dear students and colleagues,

We are making available two simple tools by courtesy of IBM for text analysis:
(1) Personality Insights, which uses linguistic analytics and personality theory to infer attributes from a person’s unstructured text; and
(2) Tone Analyzer, which uses cognitive linguistic analysis methods to measure the emotional tone in text.

They are ready for your use on Please sign in with your HKU Portal ID to gain access. The service is free-of-charge, but for the institution as a whole, we are subject to a quota of usage.

These tools might be helpful to you as you refine your term papers or job application letters. Feel free to make good use of them. Questions, comments and feedback should be sent to
