The week is about bots and if we told you the other day that Skype will integrate Cortana as a bot and Tay's withdrawal, today we show you another Microsoft bot that has another utility. This is CaptionBot, the Microsoft bot that describes images.
CaptionBot has a functionality quite simple a priori for us humans and that is to describe what it sees in any photograph. In the web there are a series of test images so you can see how the bot works, but you can upload any of the ones you have on your computer.
Basic but real description
CaptionBot doesn't go into much detail of the photograph it describes after a few seconds of analysis. What it shows is a fairly basic but real description according to what you are seeing in the image.
When we say that it doesn't go into too much detail, we mean that it doesn't tell you what color it is because of the test image sandwich, what it has inside, what surface it is on, etc. But it doesn't need much more either because in a single line it summarizes the most important thing of a photograph.
We have been testing each of the images on the web and it certainly works quite well since it describes the available photos in an easy and summarized way. Obviously it still needs a lot of improvement, but what it offers so far is very good.
If you want me to describe a photo to you, you just have to upload it to the website or you can also choose to paste a web link of a certain image that you find on the internet so that CaptionBot describes it to you.
What do you think about CaptionBot?
