Deep Learning (CNN) approach for age estimation using facial images

I am presently working on how to detect age using facial images. I propose using Convolution Neural Network approach which i read to have the feature extraction and classification phase. After my research, I am yet to figure how to make it work (the tools needed) and how to use them?

Thanks.

You will need a robust dataset to apply CNNs to age estimation. You can check the 2 image datasets linked below.

You can use the above to train a recognition model that will classify a face to a age-group or specific age.

Thank you. I was even thinking of using MORPH-II dataset but, I am checking this ones out too.

What model would you suggest?
