Microsoft’s New App  'Fetch' Can Detect Dog Breeds

Microsoft Garage has released new app Fetch! for iPhone, that can identify a dog's breed from a photo. It has earlier released an alarm clock app that creates waking up enjoyable, an instrument for taking and editing selfies and another for planning meetups with friends. when Fetch! Can’t make an exact match, the app will show us a percentage of the closest match. We can also use this app on the web, we can upload a photo of a dog.


The app is quite straightforward, and we just have to take a photo of a dog from our iDevice's camera and use it on the app to catch the breed of the dog. On What-dog.com we can also post an image of dog and see its breed. The app also offers information about the coat, size, disposition and what type of families a dog is best suitable for.

This app uses artificial intelligence methods to categorize images of real-world dogs into breeds. In the previous year, Microsoft has released apps that sense and measures mustaches in photos or guesses our age and what emotions we’re experiencing and how long our moustache is. The best thing about the Fetch is that we can also use it on humans. We can take pictures of humans, and the app will tell us  what breed they would be if they were dogs.

Fetch! is designed for repeat use, and after giving it a couple attempts, it’s easy to understand how addictive it can be. We can start with our dog, or our friends’ dogs. If the dog’s breed is unknown, the app will indicate a percentage of the closest breed.

Some interesting and main tech behind Fetch!- the app uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to make its decisions. If there's no dog in the picture, it says..."No dogs originate!" means "If we take an image of dogs, it will tell you what is the breed of dog. "If we choose to take a photograph of a cat, it'll say, 'No dogs found! Hmmm… This looks more like…cat?' But if you take a picture of a somebody, it'll thrill into its hidden fun manner. And in a playful way, it'll communicate to us not only what type of dog it thinks we are, but also why. It's fun to see if the app knows it's not a dog. It will take a lot of time to tell you what that image is. When there’s not a dog.
