Have you ever wanted to learn more about cognitive services, but don’t know where to start? Then this is the talk for you! I’ll walk you through how to make your own “astrology” using images of cosplay characters, and share my story of how I created my own horoscopes with Mario Kart players- watch out for any stray banana peels! 🏁🍄⭐️🐢🍌
Here is a download link to the talk slides (PDF)
This talk will be presented as part of CodeLand:Distributed on July 23. After the talk is streamed as part of the conference, it will be added to this post as a recorded video.

don't dare me to cosplay as ludwig because i totally will 😂😂
WE NEED THE DATA, BRIAN!! 😂
I choose Toad or Yoshi! Excited to see what this says about me...
Yaaas Toad & Yoshi ftw! They make some of the best sounds 🤪
I never get to pick first, so I never get to be Princess Peach or Yoshi because my kids choose them, so I end up being Luigi. I'm not important enough in the family to choose Mario. Besides, I usually lose.
hahaha- the sacrifices we make for children. 😜
I really love that you showed that there is a link between loving crafts and coding. As someone who loved crafting as a kid, I've found that I kind of see coding as a way to create things in a way more accessible way!
Yes yes- absolutely!! Check out Jen Looper's DIY Terrarium with CSS project if you like those types of projects 🌱 github.com/jlooper/my-terrarium
This is amazing! Thank you so much!
The concept behind this project is ridiculous but I am 100% here for it! You've inspired me to run with whatever crazy, tweet joke ideas I come up with.
omg yas!! If that's the main takeaway: mission accomplished! Fun/silly/ridiculous demos ftw! Highly recommend following Danielle Baskin for more content like this! 🤩 twitter.com/djbaskin
I remember that tweet.
Full circle! haha
So much fun!
Yay!! Thanks for watching! 🔮
This is AWESOME!!!
Thanks!! I hope it inspires lotsa fun new playful versions of "astrology" 🔮
Wario all day
Ah- I see you are evil, like my boyfriend 😳😂😜
Haha, Wario is just a fun, happy-go-lucky guy. It’s Waluigi that you have to worry about 👀
I stepped away to get a drink, how did we get on cosplay? I'm so here for this. As a staff photographer for several anime conventions I have literally thousands upon thousands of cosplayer photos sitting on a HD I can try this on.
hahaha- once I discovered that the Microsoft Face API needed human images (vs cartoon) I decided to use cosplay images for my data!
The video will be posted here soon, so you can check out what ya missed 🤩
Fun talk, Chloe! Love that this fun tweet turned into it's own site! Had no idea there was a NES.css....need to find some way to play with that sometime!
SAME! Now I wanna add NES.css to all the things 🎮
This is why I am here! So excited for this.
Oh yay!! I'm so glad- thanks for coming!! 💕
my favorites were toad and yoshi
oooh yes! I'm a Toadette gal myself 💕
shoutout for all my fellow waluigi mains
I like that this ties into your acting. I love actors who are able to just use their face to show a series of emotions that shows what they are thinking without words.
Absolutely! And there are so many fun ways that facial recognition could be applied to the arts. I hope we get some artistic code newbies watching out there who make more fun/creative projects using cognitive services! Hamilton face app, anyone? 😉
