Microsoft launched a new website “How Old Do I Look?”. Very simple but very catchy. Users just have to give their photo and website (http://how-old.net/) will guess your age. It was expected by the designer that only 50 users will respond initially but it went out viral and this website got response from 35000 users till now.
The main components are:
- Evaluating the age and gender of the person in the photo
- Real time data extraction after the evaluation
- Presenting the real time results in a dashboard
The result given by the website is still a random guess as it depends upon the face angle in the photo. Microsoft is still working on the accuracy for the results shown by their face detection technique. It will keep improving day by day as more number of people will upload their photos. For now, suppress your emotions and have fun by uploading your different photos to check out the age guess!
