Microsoft’s released a new facial analysis tool ‘How Old Do I Look’ on Wednesday but I see it as another way to feel bad about youself.
Using “state-of-the-art, cloud-based algorithms” to recognise the human features, the tool guesses your age and gender from a single photo.
Social media users have reacted with both outrage (from those whom the site identified as more mature than their actual age) and perkiness(from those who submitted unrealistic, filtered photos). There were 15,000 tweets about #HowOldRobot within 24 hours of the site’s launch.
“Sorry if we didn’t quite get the age and gender right – we are still improving this feature,” the site apologised.
Microsoft engineers Corom Thompson and Santosh Balasubramanian said that interest in their tool exceeded their expectations, with more than 35,000 users (80% of them from Turkey) “within a few hours” of their sharing it.
“We were shocked … what a great example of people having fun thanks to the power of ML [Machine Learning]!,” they wrote.
