WolframAlpha is best known as “question and answer engine” developed by Stephen Wolfram but the latest website from Wolfram is a pretty cool tool.
Wolfram’s new Image Identify Website lets users upload and drag any picture to the site, and then the site’s algorithm will try and identify the picture. Check out the site here.
The tool is amazing as it can answer correctly about most of the pictures uploaded either from phone or computers. However when you upload human faces there are certain glitches especially with morphed or photoshopped pictures.
While for humans identifying what a picture depicts is pretty easy, getting a computer program to do so accurately is not such as an easy task and that’s why the new Wolfram site so cool.
Currently, the Wolfram project can identify 10,000 daily objects.
Stephen Wolfram, on its launch, wrote, “It won’t always get it right, but most of the time I think it does remarkably well. And to me what’s particularly fascinating is that when it does get something wrong, the mistakes it makes mostly seem remarkably human. It’s a nice practical example of artificial intelligence.”
As the weekend ends, the Wolfram image site is a good way to spend your lazy-Internet fuelled Sunday.
