How AI will change the way we work
Anything you can think of that can make the way we work more efficient by facilitating collaboration, access to data, analysis, etc.
Microsoft Graph API: allows access to all the data of Microsoft users: emails, calendar, documents, contacts, working groups, etc
Cognitive Services API: a series of artificial intelligence algorithms for vision, speech, language and knowledge.
Best Emotional AI Hack
Humans are usually very good at recognizing emotions through facial expressions, tones, gestures etc. But, what about computers? Probably not so much... yet.
Your challenge is to build a model (from scratch or on top of an existing model) that is smart enough to recognize various emotions through voice or facial expressions. Find a movie, speech, or any other video source, use your model to extract the appropriate content, and then transform the section accordingly. You may add sound, text, visual elements, alter the voice or video background...anything you’d like, the only rule is to make sure the process is automated and the result is fun!
