Mizzou Engineering team takes third at Guess the Age competition

In one difficult example, the CIVALab AI software was able to estimate the age of each person correctly without error. Mizzou Engineers have developed a two-stage computational model that can accurately predict someone’s age based off a single facial image. The system earned the team third place at the Guess the Age contest, part of [...]
