New Tech Can Read Your Gender In Just 25×25 Pixels

8-bit crimes will be a thing of the past!

The device is a video camera that allows a face detector to capture a 25×25 pixel cropped face image. A mask is then applied to remove the background and the image is then passed on to a classifier which outputs the gender of the person.

It is interesting to note that this is proof that a 25×25 pixel image contains enough information to determine gender.
