How Old Do I Look?

Mycrosoft set up an age guessing website that guesses your age and gender from photos you submit. I had a little free time and some random pictures sitting around, so I thought I’d mess around with it.

It even thought I was a guy. But still, this one was kind of mean of me.

Findings:

Age:

  • Accuracy: 0%
  • Average guess: 34

Gender accuracy: 83%

Conclusions:

It’s pretty accurate guessing genders, and very good at recognizing faces. But it’s terrible at guessing ages.
