Microsoft created the age-guessing technology

Among different tech novelties like Windows 10 or Microsoft Edge internet browser that were presented on Microsoft Build Conference that took place this week, Microsoft created one more thing that is worth taking a look at.

Microsoft launched the site that can guess your age by your photo.

Among different tech novelties like Windows 10 or Microsoft Edge internet browser that were presented on Microsoft Build Conference that took place this week, Microsoft created one more thing that is worth taking a look at. Recently, Microsoft made public the site that can tell your age simply by analyzing your photo.

Actually this site is a part of Microsoft’s face detection application programming interface. At first it was a simple playground for developers to study the technology, but later with the development of cloud technology, Microsoft decided to share this technology with the rest of the users. Creators of the site admit that it took them only one day to build the site, that includes real-time analytics to provide users with the most appropriate results.

Upon entering the site it allows you to use the already uploaded photo or upload your own picture. But those who already used the site were disappointed as the accuracy of the results leaves much to be desired. For example, after analyzing the photo of ex Top Gear host, Jeremy Clarkson, the site showed that he’s 66 years old, whereas the 56-year-old Madonna was aged 27 according to the service.

Jeremy Clarkson, actual age: 55
