Microsoft Research’s How Old app is now available for download from Windows Phone Store. To showcase how developers can easily and quickly build intelligent applications using Azure services, Microsoft created few live examples. Using their newly released Face detection API’s, they set up an age guessing website called http://how-old.net on Azure. This page lets users upload a picture and have the API predict the age and gender of any faces recognized in that picture. Now, while the API is reasonably good at locating the faces and identifying gender it isn’t particularly accurate with age, but it’s often good for a laugh and users have fun with it. Now, this service is available as a Windows Phone app.
Download it here from Windows Phone Store for free.
