What to do in Emoji Scavenger Hunt?
The words “emoji scavenger hunt” in the name of the site are translated from English as “emoji scavenging”. The site is a pilot project where Google demonstrates the power of its machine learning tools through fun little games. In this case, you will use your smartphone’s camera to search for objects that match certain emoji for a limited time. With each discovered object, the time allotted for the search will increase.

How to play?
1. Go to emojiscavengerhunt.withgoogle.com from any mobile device with a camera.
2. Press the button “Let’s Play”.
3. A 3-second countdown will begin, after which an emoji will appear on the screen.
4. Within 20 seconds, you need to point the camera at a real object corresponding to the emoticon shown on the screen.
The game is an excellent implementation of the experiment, although the object recognition function works quite instantly. However, sometimes there are incidents – she can stubbornly not recognize some objects (for example, a plug) and take some objects for others (it is quite possible to slip a kitchen towel on her under the guise of a scarf). In addition, some of the objects requested by the game are quite difficult to get (where, for example, to find strawberries if it’s not in season?).
Be that as it may, such experiments are an excellent example of the use of artificial intelligence functions (in this case, object recognition functions) in everyday life.
