Today at Microsoft BUILD the company showed off a tiny tool that guesses your age based on a photo, built to demo the capabilities of Azure.
All you need to do is upload a photo and the tool will analyze your face to guess your age. On the first attempt for me, how-old.net overshot by far too much (I’m 24).
The second time, it guessed 32. Not entirely accurate for me, but for others on Twitter they’re finding it to be bang on. I’ll go and buy some anti-wrinkle cream now, I guess.
You can read a detailed post on how the company built the demo if you’re interested in the finer details.
Give the site a go for yourself and let us know in the comments if it was accurate for you or not!
