Age Progression Software Lets You See How Your Child Will Age
A new software developed by the University of Washington is now making it possible that parents can see how their child may look in later years. The new software can automatically generate pictures of a child’s face as it ages. This is the first technique of its kind that can be used that also makes use of advanced techniques to show expressions and poses.
University of Washington assistant professor of computer sciences and engineering, Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman told the press that age progression photos of little babies in the past always posed major challenges. With the new software technique, this type of artificial age progression is now a reality. “We took photos of children in unrestrained conditions and found that our method works exceptionally well”, she was quoted saying.
