Age Progression moves back to the future

👤 🕔 September 15, 2017 Comments Off on Age Progression moves back to the future

Having recently met Professor Hassan Ugail at Bradford University we see it is now possible to age progress and regress long term missing persons with a good degree of accuracy. In the past determining how a missing person may look for use in publicity has placed the responsibility on a forensic artist’s personal opinion of how they may look, albeit using reference photos of parents and siblings. By placing the emphasis on algorithms and giving that responsibility to a machine to calculate how a person’s face will age will create a uniform result each time. This does not take away what the forensic artist can do, because the skill and training that a forensic artist has is valid, and there’s a human element that gives a degree of believability, creating a ‘lifelike’ portrait of how the person could look, with updated hairstyles and clothing, and as to date the machine cannot yet do this, but surely this is only a matter of time.
