How Aska works

Aska is an opinion-sharing platform.

We provide you an Aska instance, and you (as a host) can let users share their opinions.

Opinion sharing (Users)

Users can post their own opinions, and support ("Like") opinions of others, just like an SNS.

(No registration will be requried for users)
In Aska, a large number of opinions can be classified using machine-learning techniques.

Opinion classification (Hosts)

It would be easy to grasp the diversity of opinions as long as your users are not so many. But what if you have hundreds of users?
