Microsoft’s past experiences with computer learning to let it do things like guess your age from looking at a single photograph have always been a fun glimpse at the future, even if they often couldn’t be considered reliably accurate.
Now, it has a new demo tool that will guess how you’re feeling based on your facial expression. And once again, it can’t be considered anything close to reliable. It is still kinda fun though.
New York, meet the world’s tech scene
5,000 Tech leaders are coming to NYC this November to learn and do business. This is your chance to join them.
There’s no telling whether or not these features end up in other Microsoft products, but the age guessing ability found its way into Bing image search.
