Instagram begins testing age verification tools of video selfies and confirmation from other users

Daily Mail - Science & tech 

Instagram has started testing new age-verification tools, including new technology that claims to be able to estimate the user's age using a video selfie. The'Age Estimation' technology from digital identity company Yoti analyses the user's facial features using artificial intelligence (AI), in order to predict their age. Instagram is also a new age-verification method that involves asking three separate users to confirm how old they are. The photo sharing app, owned by tech conglomerate Meta, has begun testing the tools in the US as of today, with the aim of providing more age-appropriate experiences. A third age verification method of uploading a valid form of ID, like a drivers license or ID card, is already available.
