This Super Face-Scanning Software Thinks It Can Guess Your Age

Here's a pleasant first little look at Skynet—Face.com, which develops facial recognition software, now boasts that it can pinpoint your age based on your mug alone. Let's test it out.

The software is meant for developers to use in their apps—say, a browser extension that would block certain sites when kids were on the computer. Sure it's a little eery to think a computer can know us so well, but, God, get over it. And as it turns out, it's still pretty rough around the edges.

I don't trust apps like this one. It's like somebody wants to pretend that technology is more developed than it really is.
