  • Automated age-progression software lets you see how a child will age | UW Today
    and calculates the average change in facial shape and appearance between ages These changes are then applied to a new child s photo to predict how she or he will appear for any subsequent age up to 80 The researchers tested their rendered images against those of 82 actual people photographed over a span of years In an experiment asking random users to identify the correct aged photo for each example they found that users picked the automatically rendered photos about as often as the real life ones U of Washington A single photo of a child far left is age progressed left in each pair and compared to actual photos of the same person at the corresponding age right in each pair Our extensive user studies demonstrated age progression results that are so convincing that people can t distinguish them from reality said co author Steven Seitz a UW professor of computer science and engineering When shown images of an age progressed child photo and a photo of the same person as an adult people are unable to reliably identify which one is the real photo Real life photos of children are difficult to age progress partly due to variable lighting shadows funny expressions and even milk moustaches To compensate for these effects the algorithm first automatically corrects for tilted faces turned heads and inconsistent lighting then applies the computed shape and appearance changes to the new child s face Perhaps the most common application of age progression work is for rendering older versions of missing children These renderings usually are created manually by an artist who uses photos of the child as well as family members and editing software to account for common changes to a child s face as it ages including vertical stretching wrinkles and a longer nose But this process takes time and it s significantly harder to produce an accurate image for children younger than age 5 when facial features more closely resemble that of a baby In each of these morphs the left image is the starting input photo and the right image will transform to age 80 to show the automatic aging process The automatic age progression software can run on a standard computer and takes about 30 seconds to generate results for one face While this method considered gender and age the research team that also includes UW doctoral student Supasorn Suwajanakorn hopes to incorporate other identifiers such as ethnicity and cosmetic factors such as hair whitening and wrinkles to build a robust enough method for representing every human face I m really interested in trying to find some representation of everyone in the world by leveraging the massive amounts of captured face photos Kemelmacher Shlizerman said The aging process is one of many dimensions to consider This research was funded by Google and Intel Corp For more information contact Kemelmacher Shlizerman at kemelmi cs washington edu or 206 616 0621 Share this Facebook Twitter Email Print Tagged with Computer Science
