In a famous edition of New Scientist has published the research results, according to which artificial intelligence can predict human death in the coming years. The scientists noted that the invention is more accurate than the even the most innovative ECG.
Researchers from Pennsylvania conducted an experiment whose goal was to see if artificial intelligence can predict human death. The results have surprised scientists: AI determined whether a person live in the next few years, or death will overtake him sooner.
As reported by experts, the new technology was developed on the basis of an EKG machine, but has much more accuracy. During the experiments, the computer was able to detect any heart problems even among those who successfully passed examination by a cardiologist.
To calculate the performance indicator of the new development, the researchers used the AUC, which is able to show how accurately the computer finds differences between patients who will die in the coming years and those who will live a long time. According to the survey, artificial intelligence failed to measure AUC of 0.85, while the ideal value is 1. As far as we know, the devices used in modern medicine today, cannot boast of such a result – their figure is from 0.65 to 0.8 AUC.
