Age is just a number...that Microsoft's new app can't seem to get correct. When the company debuted their How Old Robot app that's supposed to be able to guess people's ages based on facial recognition software at their Build conference in San Francisco today, things got awkward fast.

Twitter quickly blew up with memes and way incorrect guesses that the app gave them, like this newborn who got mistaken for a 36 year old. One Twitter user who's clearly underage joked that she was hitting up the club after her results came in. If the app guessed you were older than your actual age, don't feel bad. It estimated 19-year-old Kendall Jenner as 31 and Kylie Jenner as 28! She's actually 17. Not only did the app get ages wrong, but they also guessed gender wrong as well for some users. At least some people were happy with the app's results, like Ellen DeGeneres. The 57-year-old talk show host got mistaken for a much younger 27! Microsoft says they're still trying to improve the technology. Did you try How-Old out yourself and was it way off?
