In this paper, we propose a novel age estimation method based on gradient location and orientation histogram (GLOH) descriptor and multi-task learning (MTL). The GLOH, one of the state-of-the-art local descriptor, is used to capture the age- related local and spatial information of face image. As the extracted GLOH features are often redundant, MTL is designed to select the most informative GLOH bins for age estimation problem, while the corresponding weights are determined by ridge regression. This approach largely reduces the dimensions of feature, which can not only improve performance but also decrease the computational burden. Experiments on the public available FG-NET database show that the proposed method can achieve comparable performance over previous approaches while using much fewer features.
