Our Clinic team has automated digital face image aging and evaluated the photorealism of these modified images.
The goal of this project was to research the existing methods of digital aging to create our algorithm that simulates aging, and then to evaluate our algorithm with a user study on Amazon Mechanical Turk. In particular, we have created an algorithm that can be accessed through Adobe Photoshop™ to simulate the effects of aging on face images of adolescent subjects ages 6 through 19. This algorithm is applicable to the use case of helping identify missing children.
This work is a Harvey Mudd Clinic project supported by the MITRE Innovation Program and is the fourth such project between the Harvey Mudd Clinic program and The MITRE Corporation.
