Looking To While Away The Time? Try Out Microsoft’s Project Murphy.

Microsoft’s latest experiment, which isn’t exactly new, is Project Murphy, a chatbot that is both weird and hilarious.

To use, you would need to either have Skype, Telegram, or Facebook messenger. Then, visit this link and click on one of the platforms listed.

For the interesting part, you can ask it questions like, “What if Jose Mourinho had Alex Ferguson’s face? The end result is a merging of two images that attempts to answer that question. P.S. This only works for celebrities or popular personalities.

You can also upload your own picture and try out the “What if I” questions.

I tried out the “What if I were Sheryl Sandberg?” question. The end results? ?

Finally, “What if I had Kim Kardashian’s body?” ?

So, if  you’ve wanted to create a face swap, but lacked the Photoshop or Snapchat skills, then Project Murphy is for you.

Even though I think this is a tech/funny way of passing the time, it also hows how Microsoft is using its cognitive services for image recognition and language comprehension.
