About Us:

Youplus is bringing to market the world’s first Video Opinion Index and Search Engine (VOISE). Video is growing so fast it will drive 80% of traffic on the internet by 2020. People are already consuming over a billion hours of video and conducting more than 5 billion searches for video content every day. 90% of people report that videos influence what they buy and 84% trust video reviews as much as they trust their friends. This vast video web of public opinion remains a black box: unsearchable, unquantifiable, immeasurable.

With advanced AI and machine learning, VOISE looks inside videos to extract consumer opinions and insights at an unprecedented scale.

Youplus has been operating since 2014 with offices in the US, UK, and ASIA.

Youplus is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit.
