Artificial intelligence predicts lifespan

Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed artificial intelligence that analyses computer tomographic images of test subjects' breasts to identify future problems. The software can predict the person's likelihood of dying within the next five years with 69% certainty, which is the same precision rate as a medical practitioner. The diagnosis of illnesses and the creation of prognoses has been the exclusive reserve of people with extensive medical training. In future, AI could take over this work using images and a deep-learning algorithm.
