Microsoft Research Projects Range from Serious to a Starbucks Finder

I like the Starbucksfinder 🙂 The only issue is there is only a handful in The Netherlands 🙁 (starBucks’ I mean)

Microsoft researchers including Andy Wilson and Larry Zitnick demonstrate their latest research innovations during Microsoft Research’s annual TechFest event. Wilson demonstrated his EigenMirror project, a conceptual art piece that analyzes an image and then displays similarly dressed or appearing people. Zitnick showcased his Recognizing Images project, which automatically can query the Internet through visual recognition for results of an object a user has digitally photographed.
