As if our obsession with selfies wasn’t real enough.
Microsoft has unveiled a new app that can read your emotions. The tool, created by the technology giant’s Project Oxford, breaks down your selfie’s facial expressions and comes up with a score card of emotions, including anger, happiness, neutral, and surprise.
According to Hypebeast, the app works on a learning process, so the more photos it reads, the more accurate it becomes. The site continues:
To try this out, we plugged in a photo of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. It’s surprisingly fast and while we can’t really say whether it’s accurate, it does do a good job of inferring possible emotions. For Kanye, the machine deemed his emotion to be mostly neutral, with a bit of contempt, happiness and sadness.
Interesting; not smiling really does make Kanye smile on the inside.
