So yeah...

Microsoft debuted a new web site today that tries to guess the age and gender of people from a photo. The results can vary wildly and from my experience, it seems that when it gets it wrong, it thinks people are older than they are. I am sure that makes people really happy. In the example above, I picked a photo of a young Canadian male. It correctly determined his gender (make your own jokes here) and guessed his age was 24. The person in the photo is actually 21.

I tried it with a few of my own photos, I received ages of 45(!), 38, and 27. It’s a lot of fun to test and more fun if you use other people’s photos. Give it a try!
