New Website Tells You What Breed of Dog You Are
There's a new website called What-Dog.net, where you upload a photo of your dog to see what breed it is. But this is the Internet, and we upload photos of ourselves instead.
“There was an interest in creating a framework that would allow you to take a domain – in our case, dogs – and recognize numerous classes, such as breeds. We were interested in enabling an app to allow you to make object recognition extraordinary, fun and surprising,” says Mitch Goldberg, a development director at Microsoft Research whose Cambridge, U.K based team built the experience. His team works at the intersection of user experience, machine learning, computer vision and more recently, intelligent cloud services. He’s also had two German shepherd dogs, though now he has a cat. “We wanted to bring artificial intelligence to the canine world. We wanted to show that object recognition is something anyone could understand and interact with.”
Now that the nerd speak is out of the way, check out What-Dog.net for yourself. Go ahead and upload your photo and see what dog breed the site thinks you resemble. We ran the whole morning show through already:
