Artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms can predict death with high accuracy
Scarily true… AI can predict death - interesting science news

Medical doctors and healthcare data scientists have trained a machine learning algorithm to predict death in middle aged individuals to predict the risk of death due to chronic diseases. This could help in developing strategies to improve preventive healthcare in the future.

Scientists used the data of half a million middle aged people from the UK Biobank between 2006 and 2010 and followed up until 2016. The algorithm used risk prediction models that consider different parameters like demographics, biometric, lifestyle and clinical factors as well as diet.

This could also help develop tools for personalized medicine and individualizing therapy for risk management using these models.
