Microsoft has just launched now available for the Surface X a function that was announced some time ago, which focuses on maintaining eye contact during video calls, it is a vision corrector that will redirect your eyes digitally so that you maintain eye contact with people who speak.

Normally we usually look at the screen and not at the camera, it is something that surely happens to all of us, because in a video call conversation we usually look at the other person on the screen, so Microsoft worked with an artificial intelligence to redirect the gaze, so while you look at the screen the IA ​​will correct your eyesight to maintain eye contact with the person, or at least create that feeling.

The current pandemic has generated millionaire income in companies dedicated to video calls, the case of zoom is fantastic economically, a company that almost nobody knew about its existence and due to the pandemic it became the day to day of many people, It is logical to understand that Microsoft wants a market share and through this function it intends to make a difference. The feature will be available to Skype and Microsoft team, which are Microsoft's top video calling services.

I remember in my childhood seeing the animated series TheJetsons and in this series video calls were raised more than 20 years ago, today they are a reality, one of the dilemmas that the series posed was that when you answered you were in your pajamas and disheveled, so the characters wore masks, it seems very similar to this gaze corrector that works with artificial intelligence, I suppose that in the not too distant future we will be in a video call with someone and we will not know if they are really there.

Recently making videos for this platform I had the problem of not always looking at the camera, it is great to know that soon this will be a problem from the past you will be able to read calmly while artificial intelligence corrects your gaze.

Thank's for read

Dear @ramsesuchiha

Interesting choice of topic, I must admit.

Microsoft worked with an artificial intelligence to redirect the gaze, so while you look at the screen the IA ​​will correct your eyesight to maintain eye contact with the person, or at least create that feeling.

IA? I think you've meant AI.

Also I'm not sure how would that feature work anyway.

.... you will be able to read calmly while artificial intelligence corrects your gaze.

So ... I won't need to look at camera. I will look at the screen. And AI will "edit" my eyes so person seeing that videocall would have an impression that I'm looking at the camera?

Have a great weekend buddy.

That's correct "edit " your eyes with artificial intelligence ,
live while you talk ,it is something new I have not tried it is available on microsoft surface X

IA? I think you've meant AI

My fault, I wrote the acronym backwards , thank you for your comment it is always a great honor for me, and have a nice weekend too , god bless you dear leader

Microsoft likely got inspiration for this feature from Apple: first spotted in iOS 13 beta 3 (early July 2019), back then it was called "Facetime Attention Correction" and specific to Facetime video calls. Apple pulled it before iOS 13 shipped to the general public, but there are consistent rumors of it being finally included in the upcoming iOS 14 this fall.
That said, it's a very interesting feature that actually delivers a useful result and improves the inherent quality of video calls.

What good information I think apple and microsoft are constantly copying each other, thank's for read

This is cute, I also get very distracted during a video call that I look away rather than keeping my gaze on the camera this is a great leap by Microsoft in my opinion.

If I hope that in the future it will be available on all devices, it would serve me a lot, thanks for read
