Microsoft's emotion reading photo software is hilarious

Artificial intelligence is pretty neat. Computers, thinking like humans, to help humans do less thinking.

Upload a photo - either stored on your computer or via a URL (you can find this on your Facebook images by right clicking an image and selecting 'Copy image URL') - hover your mouse over the blue square that indicates a face and read off the emotions...
