The brand-new National Comedy Center in Jamestown, New York (Lucille Ball’s hometown!), celebrates comedy as an art form. The NCC is making the past, present, and future of comedy as accessible and immersive as it is hilarious. One of the interactive exhibits is Laugh Battle, powered by Microsoft AI. Our facial recognition API can detect even the tiniest smirk or suppressed chuckle; as guests face off against each other to tell jokes and try to make the other break, we can declare an unequivocal winner. It’s an interactive way to explore the art of comedy and comedic timing.
