TAWNY – Look-a-like app

We call it #LookALike

It is well known, that TAWNY works with a multimodal AI approach, thus we are also able to detect emotions via the e.g. facial recognition system.

But isn’t this boring – with our new facial Emotion AI recognition system we created more! We created a smart media entertainment app. We developed a facial recognition algorithm based on machine vision for a matching-scenario as a B2C app. Our special neural network works with 5times less data input. So you are interested in who you look like?

Contact us and get a look on our system and we explain you our offerings in detail. Let’s create some specific use-cases and application scenarios.
