Computer algorithm tells you how old you really look.
Or how old your friends, family or foes look.
Social vanity is taken to new heights by Microsoft, after creating a website that just by analyzing your photo tells you your age.
All you have to do is to upload a selfie and wait for a few seconds – and get to know the cold, hard truth by the machine. As it can analyze anyone’s photo, you can get to know how old does your family look, or how old does that friend or foe looks, and then you can compare it with yourself.
But it is a fact that guessing someone’s age, even for a robot, is a very dangerous thing to do. So after every result, you get to read this apology, “Sorry if we didn’t quite get the age and gender right.”
This website was unveiled at a conference on Thursday by the company to show off its software of face detection. It can eventually make its place in the upcoming similar apps etc.
Give it a go! Sometimes it’s completely accurate, but other times you will be laughing your head off at the outrageously and hilariously wrong results.
