Microsoft's computer vision technology may be in your next 'smart' refrigerator
Microsoft is collaborating with household appliance company Liebherr that will have Microsoft's Computer Vision API used inside future Liebherr refrigerators and freezers.
In a blog post (opens in new tab), Microsoft says that the collaboration will create an image processing system that will be able to detect and identify food products inside Liebherr refrigerators:
This technology will help people with future Liebherr refrigerators quickly identify what food and other items are inside from anywhere, via a smartphone app. That will allow them to create a shopping list from that app so they can better manage their grocery needs. There's no word on when Microsoft's Computer Vision API will be included in Liebherr's products.
