Tech Talk: CaptionBot

CaptionBot is a new creation coming from the minds of Microsoft as part of their Cognitive Services. This is a result of years of studies into new capabilities. "Computer Vision and Natural Language" are used to describe the images which is brought together with Computer Vision API, Emotion API and Bing Image API. So without further ado... let's get down to it!
You could say that...
Ace to the first description but it seems to have picked up on a ghostly presence...
I guess art can be subjective.

It's still being worked on in the building phase and there is a rating system of 5 stars that allows it to know how it did in determining the image. It's not as fun as or but there is fun still to be had with it.

Jim Dine - Venus

These bronze sculptures affixed to the walls of 155 Bishopsgate were inspired by Venus de Milo which is common in the works of Dine. They represent beauty and romance, but the works employ a rough edge reminiscent of archaeological artefacts in light of the handiwork showing the underlying emotion. The sculptures form as part of the Broadgate Art Trail.
