This article talks about an age recognition API to guess age from photos. Everypixel is an Age Recognition API that detects the age of the people from photos. As per the developer, the algorithms are trained on a database of around 300,000 images of people. The results are not always accurate but it does give you a well-estimated idea. But, it can be a good use for people who deal with stock photos.
The API lets you perform up 100 operations per day for free along with an image size limitation of 20KB to 10MB. If you want to go beyond this limit, you can get more quota by paying as you go. Apart from age recognition, this API can also be used to get Image Keywording, Stock Photo Score, and UGC Photo Score of images. With that said, let’s dive in the article to know more about this API.
