Everything startet at September, 29 when a whole exhibition hall of “Messe Munich” was filled with about 5,000 people, waiting excited for the opening key note of Mr. Barack Obama, 44th president of the United States of America. It’s barely conceivable but the three founders of B&P,  Andy Bruckschloegl, Felix Haas and

The second day, we fully concentrated on EmotionAI and tried to bring this topic closer to the audience. We had a lot of traffic at our exhibition booth and a lot of very interesting conversations. We presented our latest developments and heard about so many projects, TAWNY might fit in. Let’s take the step and work togehter!


Last, but not least on the third day the meetings were held in the “Oktoberfest” tents and offered a lot of networking possibilities.

We only can say: “This was a completely successful event!”

TAWNY World Premiere – AI made in Europe

World Premiere: TAWNY launches first Emotion Analytics SaaS Platform

Yeah, watch out it is a world debut!

In July,  we announced the world’s first Emotion Analytics Software-as-a-Service platform (SaaS). This is a new chapter in the emotion recognition technology !!!


“We are very proud of this achievement. This will impact so many industries. The fact that we have developed the platform here in the heart of Europe is very special. Most of the news in this field usually comes from the US or China” says Dr. Michael Bartl, Founder of TAWNY.


In these days Emotion AI  marks a fundamental shift in how we are able to read human emotions by using face recognition, biometric data from wearables or voice analysis. That’s why we integrated the TAWNY technology in an AI-powered SaaS web platform allowing anyone to instantly decode human emotions.

Human emotions play a fundamental role in social life, consumer behavior and decision making. However, it is very complicated and expensive to recognize and measure emotions properly by using surveys, interviews, or technical equipment in laboratories.


The TAWNY emotion platform is currently offered to B2B Beta-Users.  More about the “proud to be a beta tester” campaign

Biathlon Norway

TAWNY in Trysil

At the end of November, team TAWNY traveled far in the North – we were in Norway, in Trysil, for a special mission in the matter of biathlon.

You know – biathlon, cross-country skiing and shooting or hitting the target, a very complex typ of sport, but this makes it so special. We were lucky and got a glimps behind the scenes. While tracking the elite athletes from Austria we enjoyed the Nordish lifestyle and had some nice business meetings in front of open fire. The production of the “behind the scene” promotion video was a bit tricky due to the special day-night rhythm. But we think the result is really worth to watch. It’s great to work with such professional guys so our test results were really good and we met great people from Austria, who had some professional technology with them, too, thus a perfect setting for good cooperation wer set.

Thanks to Red Bull Media House Department Innovation for this special and really great opportunity of a teamed-up project with the ÖSV. We are looking forward to the future and are excited how the project goes on!

Susanne and Felix Porsche investing in TAWNY



We are very proud to announce great news! The next step in the TAWNY success story is done.


Deep-Tech from Munich: Susanne and Felix Porsche get into the emotion AI Startup TAWNY

Munich, November 20 2018

TAWNY ( is an AI-based technology that allows machines, robots and digital systems to read people’s emotions. In today’s world, almost all things lack emotional intelligence. In the future, products, services and environments will be empathic and thus more efficient, comfortable, healthy and safe. Video, audio and physiological data such as heart rate variability or skin conductivity are the basis of emotion recognition and classification like stress, flow or other states of well-being. It’s here where TAWNY technology can be used, for example, in cars that react to the condition of drivers, in a working environment that adapts to the condition of employees, in smart networked consumer products, in emotion-driven media and recommendation systems, or in completely new forms of market research.

The Emotion AI Startup, founded in 2017, focuses on the B2B sector and has already used the technology with well-known customers. TAWNY has developed from the incubation environment of the innovation company HYVE, whose innovative strength reaches to 70% of DAX companies who trust us.

Dr. Marco Maier, Managing Director of TAWNY says: “As one of the few startups in Germany with an explicit focus on deep learning, we have always been able to arouse the interest of talents in the AI sector. All the more reason for us to expand this team even further and to consolidate our position as one of the leading companies in the field of affective computing”.

Dr. Michael Bartl, Managing Director of TAWNY mentions: “We are delighted to be taking the next step with the Angel duo Susanne and Felix Porsche. Our goal is to be the most successful Emotion AI Company in Europe in 2019”.

Prof. Susanne Porsche has been awarded with the “Golden Aurora” as Europe’s female business angel of the year 2018: She states that “We are very impressed by the team that brings together outstanding experts in the field of artificial intelligence with the experience of anchoring innovations in companies.

Felix: Porsche: “I find it exciting to accompany a business idea that represents the beginning of a new era of coexistence between human and machine”.

We are currently confronted with the topic of artificial intelligence in all areas of life and work. AI is the buzz word of our digital age. Essentially, it is about improving machines or processes through autonomization and self-learning systems.

Emotion AI and the consideration of the factor “human” is a new plant in the landscape of artificial intelligence. Similar to the developmental stages of autonomous driving, the emotional intelligence of machines also has to do with a level model:

TAWNY featured by Munich Startup

Emotion AI meets Biathlon

Have you ever heard about “Emotional Intelligence (EI)”? Only recently, Dr. Michael Bartl, founder of TAWNY released the four levels of EI.

So, there is no better time for a new publication and also Munich-Startup used this chance and reported about this 4 EI levels.
We are proud to share this article with you  – see here.

“…so, within the next 30 years, we will go through different EQ maturity levels from zero EQ (status today), to partial EQ up to high EQ-levels of machines. In principle, this stepwise development can be compared to the five-level framework of autonomous driving from no automation to driver assistance systems up to full self-driving cars.

In our exciting biathlon project with the Swiss raising super-junior athletes, we were able to find out that Level 2 is not only TAWNY’s conception, acceptance, presumption, idea and vision, but also fact, fact and lived reality. It’s not scratchboard, it’s real life!…”

But we don’t want to anticipate too much, just start reading this great stuff.

THANKS again to Munich Start-up for this article!!!
