Our CTO Florian Eyben recently presented at the BMW Summer School to students from 18 countries all over the world. One of the focus points of the event was “Emotion Awareness”, meaning how a person can interact with a vehicle using voice, gestures and mimics. For the audio part Eyben presented our technology and how it enables to detect the state of a driver only from the voice.
The students had to develop their own ideas during the summer school as well, using lean start-up methods. In the end one of them received a prize for the best start-up idea. If you are interested in the highlights of the event, watch this video here.
