Tapias were displayed at all booths at the Microsoft Foresight event for a Robotics Stamp Rally. A “stamp rally” is an event where attendees collect stamps visiting as many exhibits as possible in the hope of getting a prize. Traditionally ink-stamps would be collected manually on a booklet or piece of paper but Tapia is able to digitally track customer attendance through Microsoft’s facial authentication service. This version of Tapia used Microsoft’s APIs face recognition, and Microsoft’s speech to text, text to speech, translation, emotion recognition, and general object recognition.
