What Kind Of Dog Are You? Microsoft Has The Answer
Redmond giant Microsoft’s tryst with artificial intelligence isn’t new. In fact the company keeps coming up with new and innovative apps based on machine learning that use algorithms built by Microsoft’s Research team from time to time.
Microsoft’s latest piece of innovation can tell a cat from a dog and vice versa…sort of. Well, at least it has been designed to do that only that it isn’t the most accurate AIs in the world. But it’s cool, and it’s so much fun.
The website how-old.net (and an app designed for iOS, it calls Fetch) is Microsoft’s attempt to help you figure out what breed a dog belongs to. You can use pictures stored on your computer and the AI will help you figure out the breed of the said dog in the picture. It is surprisingly accurate in case of actual dogs. But, that’s not the fun part.
The fun part is when you put in pictures that show everything but a dog. It can be anything: a cat, a horse and even humans. That’s right. Put in your photo and Microsoft’s AI will tell you how much of a dog quotient you got inside. Everyone’s putting in their photos. Have you put in yours yet?
