Microsoft's Facial-Recognition App Flatters Moms

There's no better feeling than being carded at the grocery store, except maybe for when that cute bag boy tries to guess our age and mistakes us for 10 years younger.

The new app developed by Microsoft just might take his place, claiming to use facial-recognition technology to guess a person's gender and age just by uploading a photo.

We tried out this app using pictures from "10 Moms Who Are Changing the World," and the results were hilariously impressive. Not only did the app get nearly all of the ages wrong, the creators also must have hired cute bag boys to program the app because nearly every guess would make any mom blush. You can check the tool out for yourself here.
