Project Oxford updated with new and improved tools
Machine learning has evolved a lot lately, and Microsoft is one of the companies that are investing big to continue the research in this field. After launching several services based on machine learning, such as How-Old.net and MyMoustache.net, the company’s ready to go one step forward with new and updated Project Oxford, a set of tools that were originally introduced last spring.
Basically, with Project Oxford, Microsoft is offering developers the necessary machine learning technology and APIs to develop new systems and services that could be used for better interaction with human beings.
Ryan Galgon, a senior program manager within Microsoft’s Technology and Research group, has presented the improved Project Oxford tools at Future Decoded, revealing a new emotion detection service that can tell people how they feel just by scanning their photos.
