Scientists claim they’ve built a new AI model that predicts life outcomes such as early death

Could an AI model know more about your life than you do? Researchers from the Technical University of Denmark certainly seem to think so. In a paper published in Nature less than a month ago, the researchers claim that they’ve created an AI model that can predict a broad spectrum of life outcomes, ranging from early mortality to personality nuances.

According to the paper and the press release, the researchers looked at data such as residence, education, income, health and working conditions to predict a person’s life events with high accuracy. Health and labor data from 6 million Danish people was used to conduct the study.

The researchers say that the next step in furthering the research would be to incorporate other types of data, such as images and information about a person’s social connections. The researchers admitted that their findings raised some serious ethical questions.
