App that tries to guess your age and sex from a photo

How Old Do I Look?

I tried this with five photos of me, all taken the same day. The age-guessing utility needs refining

While the app correctly identified me as "female" in all the photos, and managed to place me in my 50's in 3 of them, it guessed I was 23 in one photo and...dah dah dah DUMMM....87 in another!

I tried it with two different photos. One answer was my age minus 5 years. The other was my age plus 5 years. So on average it was correct! 😜

That was fun!

My recent photo came up at 53....four years younger than I really am.

One pic of DH came up at 75...another pic of him said 37!

I'll take the 37 year old.

I gave it a photo of me at age 5 and it said 24.
Another of me at age 56 said 74.

No wonder I never got carded!

Read the info. You may be giving up all rights to how your photo is used.

I tried by letting it take 2 photos of me, with and without my glasses on.

Without glasses it guessed 56, and with glasses 66. I'm 60, so it did fairly well.

In two photos it aged me at 55 which is pretty close to the actual 59. I then took a picture of me made up as a zombie 2 yrs ago for Halloween. It said I was 23. Now which way should I go out of the house tomorrow?

I read it, and it was stated more than once that they do not keep your photo.
