How UW's Age-Progression Software Could Help Find Missing Kids

Ross Reynolds talks with Robert Lowery, vice president of the Missing Children Division at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, about the new automated age-progression software developed at the University of Washington.

The software can be used to predict what someone will look like as an adult from a single childhood photograph, and the results are astonishingly accurate.

In the video below, the left image is the input photo and the right image will age to 80 years to show the automated aging process.
