This article is part of our series: a day in the software life, in which we ask researchers from all disciplines to discuss the tools that make their research possible.

Organisations use a wide range of methods to measure how audiences engage with a cultural experience. These include audience surveys, focus groups, interviews, blog posts and a range of more experimental and creative methods. However, most of these methods are expensive, use a great deal of resources and lack a standardised…
