Face.com Brings Facial Recognition to the Masses, Now with Age Detection: Interview With CEO

Face.com Brings Facial Recognition to the Masses, Now with Age Detection: Interview With CEO
Face.com's API now returns an age estimation for faces it detects in photos - seen here with some recognizable examples. Looking at someone’s face can tell you a lot about who they are. Running a picture through Face.com‘s systems let’s you turn those instincts into cold hard data. The Israel-based company has made a name for itself over the past few years by providing some of the best facial recognition technology available on the web. To date, developers all over the world have used their API to find nearly 41 billion faces! More than just detecting and identifying faces, the Face.com API provides all sorts of great data: gender, presence of a smile, approximate mood, etc. Instead of trying to understand what makes someone look a certain age, Face.com simply let their program figure it out on its own. Face.com does a pretty good estimation for this pic of Brad Pitt. In the end, though, the only really important thing to ask about Face.com’s Age Detection, is “does it work.”
