It is completed by two modules: gender classification and age prediction in face images. For gender classification, I think the link of berak is enough for private use, however the accuracy should be better when using in a commercial version. For face age prediction and further development, It is better that you search techniques on paper by Google scholar to get new ideas to re-implement it, OpenCv just a image processing library.

I think that such a task requires a huge amount of samples to train the estimator. Probably Microsfot itself, with all its means, should increase the number of samples, because it is still inaccurate.
