Since being launched just a few weeks ago, how-old.net by microsoft becomes trending topic on almost all social media. Sure it is fun to follow. Letting a software to detect and guess our age by our photograph.
For IT practitioner, it is little bit fun to guess what algorithm or techniques microsoft adopt to develop such application. I and some of friends decided to upload our photograph, and the funny thing is, it is absolutely inaccurate. Even though it is not accurate, but still we found it such a fun and cool technology.
About whether to use this technology or not for a serious purposes, I myself will think twice before decided to use this microsoft “fun” application for a professional purposes. It is absolute fun though to be told that we’re 7 years younger than our actual age :D.
