How old does Microsoft think these 18 gay icons are?

How old do you actually look? Microsoft, with its new website, thinks it can tell you.

Using ‘state-of-the-art, cloud-based algorithms’ to recognize human faces, the new site How Do I Look attempts to guess your age and gender from a photo alone.

These results range from flattering, if you care what age you look like, to decades away from what it says on your birth certificate.

So we couldn’t resist putting some gay icons through the tool to see what turned out, and you’ll never guess which celeb Madonna is considered to be the same age as.

But have no fear celebs, Microsoft says on their website: ‘Sorry if we didn’t quite get the age or gender right – we’re still improving this feature’.
