Do you know that Artificial Intelligence in 2019 can predict your death?

Yes, it’s true. Artificial Intelligence can be used as a death factoring calculator. Case studies have proved that AI can predict metastatic cancer and deaths caused by heart attack. Let’s deep dive how? Google is creating an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that can be used to predict a patient’s death—Simply astonishing.

Google’s Medical Brain team is using a new type of Artificial Intelligence algorithm that can make predictions about the likelihood of death among hospital patients. The company claims that the AI can predict when a patient might die more accurately than other traditional models used by doctors.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are clearly taking the world by storm. AI technology is revolutionizing the world and is prevalent in almost every facet of our lives:

  • The way we purchase items.
  • The way we communicate.
  • The way we move across the world.

These days, AI is pushing its boundaries further and entering into the deadly territories: Death Prediction.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is a branch of Computer Science which aims to make machines simulate Human Intelligence Tasks/Processes. These systems usually make predictions using a technique referred to as Machine Learning.

How does Google AI make Predictions?

Artificial Intelligence Can Predict Your Death

The system works by chewing up data about various details of a patient such as age, gender, ethnicity, previous diagnosis, present signs, and laboratory results.

What’s more, the system can also take data buried on charts and PDFs and use it for making predictions.

After testing the algorithm, Google found out that it could make death predictions with an astonishing accuracy level of 95%, which is 10% more accurate than the traditional models.

In one of the case studies, the Google AI software crunched about 176,000 data points of the records of a woman with metastatic cancer and pronounced that she had a 19.9% chance of dying in the hospital. The doctors at the hospital had given her a 9.3% chance of dying.

Amazingly, as predicted by the AI software, the woman died after two weeks—beating the doctors at their own game.

Although the Google’s AI may not be perfect at predicting deaths, it would continue to perform better as it is ‘taught’ with more data.

Therefore, if this breakthrough healthcare technology is improved, it can reduce human error in medicine and lead to more lives being saved.

What are your thoughts on Google’s death-predicting AI? Let us know in the comments.

Top features in Android 9 Pie

It’s official now that Android 9 will be called Android Pie. This latest version of Android mobile operating system will be rolled out to select smartphones. Android Pie shifts the focus on artificial intelligence, which will power the user experience on the OS.

Android 9 Pie is a feature-rich update, with subtle design improvements, helpful shortcuts, and a big focus on AI through adaptive settings. Google is trying to make your phone more personal, more efficient, and easier to use.

The article lists the topmost best features Android Pie brings to the operating system.

1. Digital Wellbeing

Google has taken the first step towards digital wellbeing which is often understanding more about how you interact with technology and introducing newer ways to keep you more informed and proactive.

It’s a dedicated area with dashboard that will give you an accounting of how many minutes you will spend on each app on your smartphone and also how many times you are picking up your phone and unlocking it etc.

You can also allow it to remind you of taking a break or set time limits and get alerts when you are reaching them.

Your time watched profile gives you a closer look at how much time you spend on YouTube, as well as comparisons to previous time periods.

2. Nice overview of Apps – Slices

Earlier versions of Android had recent apps will used to start horizontally, and then  Google started them stacking vertically, now it’s back to horizontal mode with some really nice improvements.

The overview screen has got the search bar along with the ability to get the list of all the apps in just one gesture.

3. Smarter Adaptive Battery

A new feature called “adaptive battery” is included with Android Pie. A smart battery is an amazing feature as it understands and deciphers the app’s functioning. This feature ensures only the apps needed are using battery and also helps use your smartphone longer between charges. The Artificial Intelligence adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the environment and user preference.

4. Improved Notification Panel

Android 9 version is updated with additional finishing touches as compared to the last few versions of Android which makes it even better.

This gives users an ability to reply to messages from the notifications area, and now there is a smart reply feature which gives you auto-generated smart replies you can choose in a single tap. This makes replying to simple messages even easier.

5. Improved Navigation

Android 9 Pie comes with a single home button in the screen, with a complete focus on navigation and user experience. This change has been made keeping in mind taller displays and higher aspect ratio. On the lines of Apple iPhone X, Android Pie gives similar swipes and gestures for navigation.
