A binarization method of images for presumption of skin age is proposed using genetic programming (GP) which is an evolutionary computing method. Skin age can be estimated by skin texture, but it is difficult to binarize skin images owing to individual differences. Therefore, results obtained by genetic image processing were achieved with consideration of individual differences, and good results were obtained. The fast Fourier transform (FFT) was performed on skin images and a classification experiment was carried out by a neural network (NN) as a comparative experiment. However it is demonstrated that an effective classification result was not obtained by FFT and NN compared to our approach.
