Gain Insight Into Local Perspectives

Talisman data provides strategic communications professionals a lens into local communities in strategically important regions, so they can accurately assess complex situations and craft effective responses. Discover how Talisman can help you develop a deeper understanding of local attitudes and actions so you can ensure your messaging remains relevant and drives meaningful change.

Identify nuances in Russian sentiment and behavior

Talisman gives you granular understanding of what is shaping attitudes and actions in a community so you can deploy highly targeted messaging. That was the case in Kaliningrad, where strategic communications professionals were seeking to engage residents around their attitudes about the economy. Talisman was able to pinpoint that local complaints about the economy stemmed primarily from the lack of availability of automotive spare parts. That gave analysts a concrete point of reference from which to develop strategic messaging while avoiding sensors.

Understand religion’s growing influence on Indian politics

India’s diplomatic relations with the West are on the upswing, but so is religious and ethnic persecution in this fast-developing nation. Talisman data sources tap into impacted groups and communities to give you a deeper understanding of how they perceive religious freedom and which messages and strategies might enhance justice and promote peaceful coexistence.

Monitor grassroots movements in China

Talisman fuses conversational and behavioral data to offer clues to how grassroots movements in China are advancing causes like greenhouse gas reduction, labor rights and freedom of speech. For instance, Talisman might identify an uptick in dialogue around energy conservation, or a growing discontentment with air pollution in a particular community. Or it might gather data on wages and merge that with local dialogue about personal income to anticipate whether labor activism may be on the rise.

Develop preemptive strategies for a brewing crisis

Talisman’s focus on hyperlocal data enables strategic communications professionals to detect warning signs of potential crises, whether that be conflict and unrest or a widespread epidemic or famine. The data passes through multiple layers of AI analysis to reveal increases in negative sentiment and emotion or changing patterns in behavioral data such as a rise in hospitalization, malnutrition or death rates. 

Anticipate and influence migration patterns

Talisman can bring perspective to the big questions around population dynamics, including which groups of people are planning to migrate and why. By scouring local data sources Talisman reveals patterns in conversation and behavior that indicate the influx or outflow of residents, potential factors influencing those shifts and the local attitudes around the changes.

Track public perception of international alliances

Talisman sheds light on the views and attitudes of local communities related to international relations—for instance, how local residents view Russia’s strengthening coalition with North Korea and China; or how those same residents view their nation’s tensions with the U.S. This can help strategic communications professionals develop messaging or strategy that moves public opinion in a positive direction.

Gauge public sentiment around Middle East conflicts

Talisman helps strategic communications professionals monitor public opinion and sentiment related to the Israel-Hamas war and other brewing tensions around the Middle East so they can tailor their strategies effectively. Our data brings context and granularity to your research by incorporating non-traditional sources where people share freely, such as community message boards, professional blogs and faith-based organizations, as well as thousands of behavioral data sets.
