After Google brought Google Maps with Where's Waldo last month, Google is back with another fun pastime, this time based on KI and Emoji. It's a scavenger hunt that can be played on any phone, and it uses machine learning to identify real objects and match them to an emoji. To play, just go to the browser of a phone on emojiscavengerhunt.withgoogle.com.
The idea is simple: Google displays an emoji on the screen, and the goal is to use the phone's camera to find a suitable object. There is a time limit in the game, but every successful game adds time. The objects are easy to find, like a shoe, but it gets harder when there is no strawberry or a piece of pizza nearby.
It's important to remember that this is a free web game that is far from perfect. Sometimes it rejects the object, regardless of how close it is to the camera or how clear the image is.
On the other hand, this is just an experiment to highlight Google's AI features. Google's I / O Developer Conference starts this week and KI is expected to play a big role in the event, so the game could become even more exciting.
