Angry, scared, happy … emojis are one of the most common ways of communicating in messages and social networking systems, in using words. Want to experience your ability to replicate this expression?
The solution is Emoji8, an application for Windows that utilizes Windows Machine Learning. It was made by Killian McCoy, ganalytical framework and The Essential Experience Team from Microsoft initially as an experiment to realize how you can maximize the use of Windows hardware and to demonstrate the potential of Machine Learning in an easy and fun way.
Emoji8's goal is to scientifically evaluate the user's facial expressions when they emulate a series of randomly selected emojis. This application uses a computer camera and performs image recognition, checking imitation, and finally being able to share the best face on Twitter. You can also use the offline application and then share the results in the end. Or not.
Imitation – and the last classification – will be far better or worse depending on the interpretative effort and capacity that each user enters in experience.
The Emoji8 application is available for free download for Windows 10 and the code is also available on GitHub.
