Age Progression Software

Ira Kemelmacher is a Computer Science and Engineering professor, and her approach to "aging" people via algorithms is systematic indeed. But I hope she incorporates specific and sufficient personal data, before she ages a particular person. Health and genetics, occupation and lifestyle, as well as climate all figure in how any of us ages. It was good that she inputted old photos of the interviewer, but she probably needed many, many more photos of him. Her progression of him to 80 years old didn't look very different at all from his current looks. So either she took a very conservative approach for this example or her algorithms need much development and refinement.
