Face.com (Wildly) Guesses Your Age and Mood From Your Photo

The next creepy step in facial recognition comes from Face.com - a little bit of software that purports to not only identify you with a photo of your face, but also deduce your age, gender, and mood. We'd be more creeped out if it wasn't sort of...not accurate. The above photo of Pop Photo's Dan Bracaglia, a 24-year-old who we'd describe as "smiling sardonically," was identified as a non-smiling 33-year-old man in a "happy" mood. Try it for yourself here.
