Fetch App: From Microsoft Garage Detects Your Dog Breeds From Photos

Posted in IOS, and Technology

Over the past few months, Microsoft has released a slew of apps that use its Project Oxford AI tech to guess from photos how old you are, Mimicker alarm, what emotions you’re experiencing and how long your moustache is.

Man’s best friend has inspired a new app – Fetch! Using your camera or photo library, it can identify and classify dogs by breeds and tell you what kind of human personality fits best with specific breeds. And just for fun, the app will even take an informed guess on what kind of dog you or your friends might be.

“If you want to take photos of dogs, it will tell you what dog breed it is, if it’s one of our supported breeds,” Goldberg says. “If I choose to take a photograph of a flower, it’ll say, ‘No dogs found! Hmmm… This looks more like…flower?’ But if you take a picture of a person, it’ll kick into its hidden fun mode. And in a playful way, it’ll communicate to you not only what type of dog it thinks you are, but also why. It’s fun to see if the app knows it’s not a dog. A lot of the time, it’ll tell you what that image is. When there’s not a dog, you still want to use it.”

Microsoft says its iOS app offers even more features, like a percentage meter showing how close your uploaded picture matches the breed in its database, along with info on several breeds.
