Microsoft releases face-recognition app – fails to recognise anyone’s age

Microsoft knows how old we really are.

Microsoft releases face-recognition app – fails to recognise anyone’s age

Earlier this week, at the Microsoft’s Build conference in San Francisco, the company announced its latest app.

How Old uses “state-of-the-art cloud-based face algorithms” to assess peoples faces and guess their age.

However, instead of the internet exploding in gasps of “wow” and “ahh”, the algorithm-generated age estimations proved to be less accurate and more outrageous.

The users took to twitter to give thanks to Microsoft for exploiting their greatest fears… of looking 20 years older than they actually are.

I uploaded my photo to How Old and received a calculated age of 47…

I’m 25. Thanks Microsoft.
