Microsoft unveils site that tries to guess how old you are – try it !
(CNN) – You’re only as old as you think you are.
Or in this case, as old as a computer algorithm thinks you are.
In a machine learning experiment that’s taken social vanity to new heights, Microsoft has created a website that tells you how old you look just by analyzing your photo.
Sometimes it’s dead on. Other times it’s hilariously, outrageously wrong.
It’s simple: Upload a selfie, wait a few seconds — then the machine gives you a number.
And since it can analyze anyone’s photo, you can compare yourself to your friends, family, and foes.
But guessing someone’s age is a dangerous game, even for a robot. That’s probably why the site comes with a sheepish apology. “Sorry if we didn’t quite get the age and gender right,” it says after each result.
The company unveiled the website at a conference Thursday as a way to show off its new software.
Part of a new initiative called Project Oxford, Microsoft says you could use this face detection technology for tasks like sorting through a large photo collection.
But we’re human — so we’ll probably just use it to judge our own looks.
And everyone else’s.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
