Microsoft’s New Website Tries to Guess Your Age

Don't worry if it's a bit off

If you’ve ever wondered how old you look in pictures, Microsoft has just developed an addictive new website that offers the answer. The site,, takes data from an uploaded image to determine the subject’s age and gender.
According to Microsoft’s Machine Learning blog, the project started as a simple experiment among Microsoft engineers.

Within hours, the experiment had reached 30,000 people curious about whether a simple Internet site could accurately read their face.
