On October 11, 2016, MindTouch hosted their third .NET Magic Night at their new offices downtown San Diego. MagicNight is a hackathon-like, hands-on experience, where a challenge related to a particular topic is presented, and attendees team up to solve the challenge.
With Derek Robbins at the helm for this Magic Night we delved into the world of Microsoft’s Cognitive Services, submitting images to their their Face API and Emotion API in order to classify images of people’s faces and filter them by gender and the emotions they appeared to be expressing.We had a great time and a great turnout.
We hope you all learned something and had a good time meeting new people and networking.The challenge and the solution can be found here.
The challenge is in the ‘master’ branch and the solution is in the ‘solution’ branch. https://github.com/DotNetMagicNight/MagicNightCognitiveServices
