Microsoft launched How-Old.net, a website that will estimate your age by analyzing a photo, at the Microsoft Build 2015 developer conference today.
It’s a user-friendly, straightforward process: Upload your own photo or peruse the Bing search engine. Microsoft acknowledged that the site isn’t completely accurate, but it will continue to improve once more people use it.
The operation behind the website is a bit more complicated – and almost creepy. The general components to develop How-Old.net are extracting gender and age and collecting data, which explains why the site will improve from user growth. Knowing that a program can obtain all sorts of data just from one photograph is pretty intimidating. The Microsoft Learning blog delves into the technical analytics behind the site. But seeing how old you look based on algorithms can be pretty fun.
Scroll down for a compilation of celebrity's ages according to Microsoft.
