Play Twins or Not With Images and Face API
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
If you’re being told that you look like someone famous all the time, or just want to check up how familiar you look yourself, then there is a new website for you. The TwinsOrNot.net site allows you to upload and match two images and get a percentual answer on how much the two match.
The site is created by Mat Velloso, the same guy that was behind the how-old.net site. The new site uses the Face API in Project Oxford, a platform of intelligent services, one of the many available in the Machine Learning APIs. The most impressive of all, it was built in just four hours from idea to the finished site function.
People have been using it not just to match with famous people, but also their own family. What side of the family does the new baby resemble the most. Did you grandfather look like you or not? There are many possibilities. People are also having fun by uploading new and old photos of themselves to check how accurate the algorithms are and how much you have changed over the years.
This comes after the initial, and somewhat pointless, method demonstrated to guess the age based on a photo that you provided. If you’d like to check this out yourself, then head on right over to twinsornot.net and start the fun. Upload any two images.
