Microsoft's new Project Oxford is based on AI or Artificial Intelligence can do several things. Earlier this year, the company had launched how-old.net website that determines the age of the person when the photo is uploaded or clicked through a webcam.However, the Project Oxford from Microsoft can read your emotional state by looking at your photos. The Project Oxford can identify your emotional state of anger, fear, happiness, sadness, surprise, or a "neutral" state.
The update was announced at the Future Decoded conference held at UK. The company has also demonstrated several capabilities of the project Oxford that uses AI for speech recognition. The speech recognition tool is part of Project Oxford's Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS), the company shared in a blog post.
However, the biggest highlight of the the Project Oxford remains the software's ability to look at a picture and tell the persons feelings. The idea is to do innovative and new things that might not be possible otherwise.
The current version of the Project Oxford is available in SDK and Beta version only to developers. The SDK pack of the Project Oxford is available for Windows and Android. Part of the SDK includes - Face recognition software, Speech to Text and Computer Vision.
"Developers might want to use these tools to create systems that marketers can use to gauge people's reaction to a store display, movie or food," the company wrote in a blog post. "Or, they might find them valuable for creating a consumer tool, such as a messaging app, that offers up different options based on what emotion it recognizes in a photo."
Microsoft has also launched MyMoustache.net to raise awareness for Men's health as part of its Microsoft Garage Project.
