Microsoft is testing a new app that uses AI to rate your facial expression against the popular gesture emojis
The newly launched Microsoft app uses machine learning to suggest your current mood by imitating it with an emoji couple with a score rating to determine how genuine your current mood is like. The new app is called ‘Emoji8’ and it uses a 0 to 100 percentage score ratings to demonstrate how well you recreate the emoji, and it’s mostly meant to show off the capabilities of this brand of artificial intelligence in an accessible way.
How does the Emoji 8 actually works, someone may like to as. The Windows app serves you an emoji on the screen while your front Camera is actively turned on, you will be further instructed to mimic the emoji face on the screen, or probably put up an expression of which the emoji mimic and thus analyze via your webcam and hence provide a score rating to suit whatever result that pops up.
Interestingly, it gives you the option of creating a gif with some of your “craziest facial expressions” to share on Twitter. On Microsoft’s end, Emoji8 is supposed to show how quick and flexible its machine learning prowess is. From a user end, it’s a bit weird to show off how you 90 percent matched a crying emoji to your friends.
The Emoji 8 app is currently free for download in the Microsoft Store, so you can have fun measuring your mood at your leisure times.
