WebCam Software Can Discern Gender and Age

You can decline to state your age but you can't hide from this new facial recognition software from Omron Corp: it can tell the sex and age of people!

A computer screen displays the sex and age of people as determined by face-recognition software developed by Omron Corp. at the CEATEC technology trade show in Chiba, Japan October 2, 2007. The Japanese text reads: (L to R) "Woman 20-39 years, Man 20-39 years, Man 20-39 years".

You guys are overly harsh on a new technology: yes a 19 year window is quite a sizeable one, but that's actually amazing that the software *can* discern adult vs. children's faces.

I remember the first few generations of voice recognition - those were horrible - but they did become much better over the years.

You can just see where the technology is taking us the next couple of decades.

This myspace user is zero to 19 years of age and this predator issuing a friend request is 58 to 77 years of age. This should get fun, especially if it's as accurate as the voice recognition software.
