The computers are watching us!
Drum roll please! Now for the latest from Microsoft Cognitive Services: CaptionBot – an online AI (artificial intelligence) thingie that looks at photos and tells what it sees – sort of supplying a caption for the picture.
Of course I had to try it! I didn’t give it my simplest photos either. The last one was this:
Well, it said “… it’s a bunch of traffic lights hanging from a wire.” Not exactly. It got “wire” correct, although there are at least four of them, not counting the short ones. And only a computer algorithm could see these transformers as traffic lights. Well, I guess we still need drawing boards – let’s get back to them.
… and with that I think I broke it.
Go ahead, try it, it is fun! CaptionBot.ai
But please be kinder than I was. We need to nurture these youngsters 😉
