How Old Do I Look

How Old Do I Look
Microsoft recently released a Face detection API. Based on this API, it took a couple of developers just a day to put this website together. This website allows users to upload their photograph. The API then tries to guess the age and gender of any faces recognized in that picture.

Face APIs are a part of Microsoft Project Oxford, which provides state-of-the-art algorithms to process face images, including gender, age, recognition, alignment and other application-level features.

The key components of this website are:

  1. Extracting the gender and age of the people in these pictures.
  2. Obtaining real-time insights on the data extracted above.
  3. Creating real-time dashboards to view the above results.

We also got real-time insights to learn more about how people were using this tool. For instance, we assumed that folks would not want to upload their own pictures but would prefer to select from pre-canned images such as what they found online. But we what we found out was that over half the pictures analyzed were of people who had uploaded their own images, said Microsoft.

The results were not bad too. The website put my age at 47, whereas I am a couple of years older than that.

Go visit and see what it has to say about you. Let us know if it guessed correctly about you.

    I just tried it with a phone pix and was guessed as a man about age 50…which is only 805 years too little (well, 5 years too little really, it’s just many have said I was born with an old soul); it may do better in future when it can read better images…I first tried with a DSLR digital photo, and the service displayed the uploaded image properly but said it couldn’t tell as currently images must be under 3MB size.

    I’m 65 and I got 54 so this means that this app is working correctly…. ha

  3. LOL, As long as the website says we are younger than what we actually are, I am sure it will continue to be popular. The moment it starts showing a figure, more than our real age, people will stop visiting it! 🙂
