Microsoft founder Bill Gates has always had a keen interest in digital imaging.  Just remember, he founded Corbis in 1989.  Today the image licencing (stock photo) giant has over 100 million images and 800 thousand videos in its library.  Today, Microsoft is working on something called Oxford.  It is an algorithm that can detect the emotions of people in the photos.  The possibles to use this tool is endless.  Just imagine, not having to look through images to use.  Or the automatic cataloging and tagging of metadata into images.
