Microsoft has just released a new smartphone app that will help you figure out what kind of dog you are…..

Fetch! is a facial recognition app that uses your iPhone camera or personal photo library to identify and classify dogs by breed. You can use it to learn more about any dog by uploading a photo. But it doesn’t stop there. The app also matches human personality types with specific breeds, so in case you were curious what kind of dog you’d be, or whether your best friend is more of a basset hound or a shih tzu, you can upload human photos to determine what breeds correspond to different kinds of people.


“There was an interest in creating a framework that would allow you to take a domain — in our case, dogs — and recognize numerous classes, such as breeds. We were interested in enabling an app to allow you to make object recognition extraordinary, fun, and surprising,” Mitch Goldberg, development director at Microsoft Research, said in a news release. “We wanted to bring artificial intelligence to the canine world. We wanted to show that object recognition is something anyone could understand and interact with.”
