Microsoft AI bot recognises photos

Microsoft's AI recently got all the wrong publicity when a chat-bot, called Tay, quickly learnt via Twitter to become a racist. Hopefully less contentious will be CaptionBot, which can recognise and describe the content of photos you upload to it. To the right you can see that it correctly identifies a photo of a boat I uploaded. Give it a try. You can find out how CaptionBot works here.
