In this paper, we propose the new age estimation system using the GA and SOM. The GA is used in the feature extraction of faces at each age. Especially, we use the interactive GA. The faces are classified by using the SOM. Moreover, features are analyzed in the age by the selected parts of faces. Furthermore, in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed method, we show the simulation examples.
