Project Description

The APD, CI and PI currently lead the world in developing computer-based human age estimation techniques, outperforming even human estimates of age based on face images. But there are a number of improvements that need to be made before this technology can be implemented in critical security applications. The aims of this project are to improve i) the practicality of the system by automating the pre-processing of face images, ii) the accuracy by considering alternative mathematical models and feature extraction methods, iii) the reliability by providing the model with additional visual information that humans rely upon when estimating age (hair, motion, body build), and testing on different age groups, genders, and racial variations.
