Earlier this year we wrote about our experiments with Cloud Cognitive Services like text-, speech-, and image recognition. This research has led to a lot of new insights, which will be published in the very near future.
A warm welcome to our offices
Overwhelmed by the possibilities of modern cloud cognitive services, we developed a face recognition appliance. When entering our head office in Amsterdam, visitors will notice a big screen with a camera. Once a visitor’s face has been detected, further analysis takes place using cloud face recognition services based on the power of machine learning. The service provides insights like age, gender, emotion and other facial features like reading glasses, beard and moustache. A very fun and appealing demo.
Taking face recognition to the next level
In the last two months, new features and a fresh design were implemented to make the setup more mature and appealing. One of the improvements we made is the animated welcome message that provides a warm welcome to people entering our Mirabeau offices in Amsterdam and Eindhoven. Not in the Netherlands? The demo is also installed in the Cognizant Collaboratories in London, New-York and even Melbourne.
Other improvements include the ability to detect new facial features like lip & eye makeup and a look-a-like detection feature. The appliance shows a colleague you look most similar to if there is more than a 50% match.
Bringing your data to life
The demo shows the true power of today’s Cognitive Cloud Services powered by AI and can easily be enriched with your own data. Several use-cases can be thought of such as supporting your employees with relevant data, like their next appointment. Attracting visitors to your booth at an event is another great example. And because the system now is capable of logging statistical data, you could provide insights like the happiness level per day, top visitors, average age, etcetera.
