For couples who worry about how their unborn child will look,
or how they will look after 40 years of marriage, and electric
company says it has the answer.
Matsuhita Electric Industrial company says it has developed
a computer program that can use photographs of faces to
predict the aging process, or turn the clock back to
produce a more youthful image.
By combining the facial characteristics of the prospective
parents, it can produce a portrait of the likely offspring,
the company says.
It can not predict a deformity, or devastating disease, or
even a minor sorrow. Yet these appear on the face.
