Meet AI That Knows When You will Die

Eugene Cernan once said “Curiosity is the essence of human existence. 'Who are we? Where are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?'... I don't know. I don't have any answers to those questions. I don't know what's over there around the corner. But I want to find out.”

It is human nature to be curious over things beyond our understanding; why will someone seek to know the time they will die? Isn’t that weird? I believe it is.

The Death Clock has been around for quite a while. The website was launched in 2003 and can be describe as a straightforward site without complex design. It enables users to enter their date of birth and other key data just to figure out when they will most likely die. Huh! did i just say that!! yep. Death Clock website continues to be accessible today, with the slogan "The Internet's friendly reminder that life is slipping away..." A short welcome message found on the site says “…second by second. Like the hourglass of the Net, the Death Clock will remind you just how short life is.”

Back to 2017, some advancement has been made. Australian scientists at the University of Adelaide's School of Public Health have ended up inventing a computer system that uses profound learning artificial intelligence approach and medical imaging of patients’ chests to foretell if they will die within five years.

Luke Oakden-Rayner, a radiologist, who published in Scientific Reports said "Predicting the future of a patient is useful because it may enable doctors to tailor treatments to the individual,"

"The accurate assessment of biological age and the prediction of a patient's longevity has so far been limited by doctors’ inability to look inside the body and measure the health of each organ,"

"Although for this only a small sample of patients was used, our research suggests that the computer has learnt to recognise the complex imaging appearances of diseases, something that requires extensive training for human experts."

Oakden-Rayner further said the research opens new avenues for the application of artificial intelligence technology in medical image analysis, and could offer new hope for the early detection of serious illness, requiring specific medical interventions.

We hope this is not an end time Artificial Intelligence (AI), what do you think?
