NBC’s Today Show features UW CSE’s age progression software

Ever wonder what the Today Show’s Natalie Morales will look like when she’s 60?

We didn’t either.  But the Today Show thought their viewers might, so featured UW CSE’s age progression software this morning. The software, created by Ira Kemelmacher-Schlizerman, Supasorn Suwajanakorn, and Steve Seitz, computes stunningly accurate age progression images from a single photograph.

Watch the video segment (preceded by an annoying 30-second commercial) below. Transcript on the Today Show website here. Learn more about the research here.

Dan Grossman points out that this software solves a long-standing challenge articulated by the late comic Mitch Hedberg:
