Google creates technology that could predict how long a person will live

No one can say for sure how much time you have left or what are your chances of beating the odds.

This tool that has been created by Google sifts through mounds of existing data that was not earlier available like PDF's, scribbled notes. Google's accuracy was 0.95 in predicting patient's mortality within set time frame. The preliminary predictions by the computer system came out to be surprisingly accurate, as they predicted if the patient will stay long in the hospital with an 86 percent accuracy and further unexpected readmissions with a 77 percent accuracy, marking "statistical significance" in the area. Apart from predicting a patient's chances of living or dying, it can also do a bunch of other things like figuring out the number of days a patient will be in the hospital or the chances of the patient being readmitted. This data algorithm improves and learns on its own. However, it would seem that Google's AI has gotten to a level of advancement where it can actually predict a patient's time of death. For its recent research, the internet giant cut deals with the University of California-San Francisco, and the University of Chicago for 46 billion pieces of anonymous patient data.

Google's new program aims to eliminate the discrepancies caused by different Electronic Health Records (EHR) found in individually customised EHR systems of hospitals.

The algorithm can quickly access a patient's medical records for important data which could indicate the likelihood of their survival.

The current method of collecting data is cumbersome, costly, and time-consuming. The AI health research unit, also called the "Medical Brain" is researching and developing a whole range of AI tools that will be able to forecast symptoms as well as diseases with a degree of accuracy that is just a little bit frightening.

The system has some powerful machine learning capabilities, and it can also predict the length of a patient's stay in hospital and its other behavioural pattern. In less than 2 weeks later, the patient died in a hospital from her condition. Volchenboum said the company may have a more hard time maintaining that data rigor if it expands to smaller hospitals and healthcare networks.

According to Bloomberg, Google is well ahead of the game in terms of medical AI.

At Google's developer conference this year, Lily Peng, a member of the Medical Brain team presented a project in which a Google algorithm accurately predicted peoples' risk of heart disease. Now, thanks to this new software, it could be possible to do so. Before releasing it, Google had three retinal specialists furiously debate the early research results, Dean said.
