 New Software to Calculate Your Age

Computers to calculate your age with great accuracy, may soon be a reality.

Presently the software is accurate to within five years, irrespective of ethnicity, but the researchers from the Advanced Digital Sciences Center in Singapore hope to trim down this margin of error in the near future.

According to PhysOrg.com, researcher Bingbing Ni asserted that this new technology could have several uses.

"For example, digital signage applications - installed in shopping malls, vending machines, etc - could automatically estimate the customers' ages and recommend corresponding product advertisements," the Daily Mail quoted Ni as saying.

Other uses may comprise stopping underage people buying alcohol and cigarettes or children from viewing adult content on the internet.

Ni's software works from a database of 77,000 images, with 219,000 faces in total.

The study has been published in IEEE Transactions on Multimedia.
