How old are you? If you ask Microsoft, chances are you’re probably 36 or something.
Microsoft has introduced a new website called How-Old.net that guesses your age. Besides being an innovative piece of technology, it’s also just a fun way for people to waste time trying to outsmart a computer.
The way it works is you upload of photo of yourself, or your friend, or maybe Taylor Swift or some other celebrity you like, and the site uses facial recognition and other data to make an intelligent guess of your age and gender.
Sometimes the site gets it right, but most of the time it errs on either the extremely flattering or ridiculously overshoots the user’s age — and people on Twitter are having endless amounts of fun posting their results.
Remember that age is just a number, Internet.
