‘AI Death Calculator’ can ‘predict’ when you’ll die, with eerie accuracy

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is starting to become a huge part of our existence as we enter a realm of technological advancement never before seen in recent years. AI is helping many industries achieve automation, but for the average person, it helps in seeking answers to things you want to know…or may not want to know–such as when you’ll say goodbye to this earth.

There exists now an AI death calculator that may foretell when you will die–with terrifying accuracy.

‘Life2vec,’ an instrument for predicting life expectancy, was developed using the comprehensive study of 6 million people in Denmark. The study entitled, “Using sequences of life-events to predict human lives,” was published in the Journal Nature.

Sune Lehmann, the main author of the study, said that they used the technology behind ChatGPT to examine human lives through the representation of every individual “as sequence of events” with their life encounters.

Forecasts can be based on the aspects of earnings, occupation, and medical diagnosis. The instrument can even detect the amount of money you’ll have when your life will come to an end.

A human being’s story and data between 2008 and 2016 are examined by the researchers; then, an algorithm is used to determine whether they were likely to live for at least four years beyond January 1, 2016. With the model seeking patterns in the statistics, the Life2vec model is said to make predictions with 78% accuracy.

According to the researchers, having a large income and having a leadership role lead to a longer lifespan, but routine smoking can decrease it. The instrument also gives consideration to mental health and physical activities.

“Aspects of someone’s life were given a code; for example, S52 indicates a forearm break, 072 indicates a postpartum hemorrhage and POS3513 means someone is a computer systems technician,” News 5 Cleveland reported.

By this time, the tool, Life2vec, had carried out trials on Danish people between the ages of 35 to 65, half of whom had died.

However, the instrument is not yet accessible to the public.
