Microsoft releases app that guesses age

How-old.net

(WTNH)– Microsoft wants to guess your age with an app.

The company released a new machine learning application Thursday that claims in can guess your age. The app, called How-Old.net, uses face detection software to determine age and gender.

Upon the app’s release, social media blew up with people sharing their results. But more often than not, the app was completely off when guessing people’s ages.

Microsoft says they are still improving the feature. To try out the app on yourself, click here.
