Important warning for anyone using 'scarily accurate' AI death calculator

Important warning for anyone using 'scarily accurate' AI death calculator

Being keen to find out your life expectancy comes at a risk.

Ai tools are advancing everyday, and people are now using them to try and get a glimpse into their future.

Danish researchers have recently developed an AI tool that can predict your success in life, and your life expectancy.

Described as a 'scarily accurate' AI death bot, they haven't released it to the world yet, but that hasn't stopped a bunch of fake sites from creating their own version of the model online.

However, the world wide web is known for making up fake websites and giving out fake information in exchange for personal data.

Some websites are even declaring that is associated with life2vec.

Well, to put it straight. Any website that is declaring these kinds of life projections is fake.

The Danish team is now warning the public that their research is completely private and the supposed-AI modelled websites out there ‘have nothing to do with us and our work’.

'We are aware of Life2vec social media accounts, and there is at least one fraudulent website. We are not affiliated with these or any other entities that claim to use our technology,’ they said.

They are also warning anyone who comes across these websites to 'be careful.'

Fraudulent websites may intend to share futuristic predictions in exchange for personal data and other information such as email addresses, phone numbers or credit card details.

The original life2vec was developed by feeding data from six million Danish health and demographic records who were aged between 35 and 65.

‘It could predict health outcomes,’ Sune Lehmann, a professor at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and lead author on the life2vec study.

‘So it could predict fertility or obesity, or you could maybe predict who will get cancer or who doesn’t get cancer.

‘But it could also predict if you’re going to make a lot of money.’

Around half of the participants died between 2016 and 2020. However, it was recorded that life2vec predicted these deaths with 78% accuracy.

The AI used factors such as income, profession and medical history to determine longevity, as well as social ‘life events’ they may experience.

The team wrote: 'Our framework allows researchers to discover potential mechanisms that impact life outcomes as well as the associated possibilities for personalised interventions.'

'So it could predict fertility or obesity, or you could maybe predict who will get cancer or who doesn't get cancer.'

It answers those daring life questions that everyone wants to know, but at the same time, probably doesn't.
